On Being Tumblr

On Being Tumblr

On Being with Krista Tippett is a public radio project delving into the human side of news stories + issues. Curated + edited by senior editor Trent Gilliss.

We publish guest contributions. We edit long; we scrapbook. We do big ideas + deep meaning. We answer questions.

We've even won a couple of Webbys + a Peabody Award.

Any band that calls itself Steve ‘n’ Seagulls has to have one heckuva good sense of humor. And that they’re Finnish is even more fantastic. But, a cat like myself isn’t quite sure what kind of music they might play… or the caliber of their musicianship.

Well, this video should remove all doubt. Their get-ups, the scenery, the instruments take AC/DC’s classic “Thunderstruck” and give it a whole new look and sound. And they do it incredibly well. Angus would be proud of the banjo player who takes the lead guitar line to another level.

A little folk music for your Tuesday evening melody.

Elizabeth Cotten’s “Freight Train” is just what I needed this evening.

We haven’t posted a Tuesday evening melody in several weeks. And this ditty couldn’t be a more fitting reentry.
