Commencement Speaker?


Tomorrow night President Barack Obama will deliver a commencement address for this year's high school graduating classes. It will be a nationwide televised event in lieu of in-person graduations. If you were to choose a singer or musician for the task, whom would you choose? Who would make a good commencement speaker? Let us know and we'll spin a set of those artists after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Dolly Parton & Mavis Staples "Why"

Eddie Vedder "Rise"

Steve Earle "Someday"

Aimee Mann "Wise Up"

The Decemberists (Colin Meloy) "This Is Why we Fight"
