Maybe you’ve noticed a theme in our music this week... it’s all from Baltimore. When the 49ers lost to the Ravens last Sunday, we lost a bet with Baltimore station WTMD. So you’ll be hearing the sweet strains of the Chesapeake Bay all week on Crosscurrents. Today we’re featuring David Byrne, raised in Baltimore. The movie Stop Making Sense, about Byrne’s band The Talking Heads, is playing at the Parkway Theatre at midnight on Friday. So, there from Chesapeake Bay to our own Bay... go Ravens!
