I totally agree. I'm not a Letterman fan, but when I tape Ferguson the VCR clicks on early enough to catch the musical act on Letterman — which is how I found out about We Are Scientists and Solange Knowles, and how I saw some great performances by Al Green and Little Anthony and the Imperials.

I was already planning to buy the new Al Green album, but now I've downloaded some Scientists tracks and the whole Knowles album, plus I did a little Googling on Little Anthony to discover that it's pretty much the same guys, still touring, and how many acts their age can say that?
Then I got curious about whether anybody else was noticing this recent run of awesomeness, and lo and behold, somebody had. So, keep up the good work, I guess.
