Ravi Shankar was born on this date in 1920. Shankar introduced George Harrison, and thus pop music, to the sitar. In addition to tracks from The Beatles, can you think of others that use the sitar, whether it's acoustic or electric? We'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

The Lemon Pipers "Green Tambourine"
 
The Steve Miller Band "Wild Mountain Honey"
 
The Clash "Armagideon Time"
 
Freda Payne "Band Of Gold"
 
Stevie Wonder "Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)"
