Question of the Day: Sweet

by Corny O'Connell

March Madness® is getting down to brass tacks. After starting with a field of 64 teams we're down to the sweet sixteen in college basketball. Which has us thinking of "sweet" songs. Got any in your playbook? Tip us off in the comments below and we'll play a set of "sweet" songs after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Chuck Berry "Sweet Little Sixteen"

Sarah McLachlan "Sweet Surrender"

Amos Lee "Sweet Pea"

Velvet Underground "Sweet Jane"

One of the best ways to celebrate a new album from The Hold Steady is to experience the songs live, and a lucky crowd of WFUV Marquee Members got to do just that at Hill Country Live. Teeth Dreams is The Hold Steady's sixth album over their ten-year span, and it incorporates some significant changes that lead singer Craig Finn described to me as "The Hold Steady 2.0."

A Chain Reaction On Today's Mixtape

by Carmel Holt

Even though the FUV Mixtape is usually a wide-ranging, anything-goes, all-request hour, sometimes inspiration strikes and a theme takes hold. Today, it happened as a result of a photo I posted on Facebook and Twitter of a cassette tape on a chain...and - voila! - we got a bunch of "chain" songs from you. Of course, it's your hour, and we were all too happy to play along.
