6 a.m. James Munsey

Maryland songs from three of my favorite brothers' bands.

* "Streets of Baltimore," by Flying Burrito Brothers
* "Pretty Girl from Annapolis," by Avett Brothers
* "Penn Station," by Felice Brothers

8 a.m. Rennie Twigg

It's all about the mouth (talking, laughing, smiling).

* "You Haven't Told Me Anything," by Keane
* "Don't Make Me Laugh," by Gomez
* "Talking Bird," by Death Cab for Cutie
* "God Put a Smile Upon Your Face," by Coldplay

10 a.m. Joseph Stockman

I am an avid gamer and what better way to game than rocking out on Rock Band 2? I download tons of songs, but here are some of my favorite Rock Band DLC (downloadable content) songs available to download to your Playstation 3.

And if it's not too much to ask I would like Tyler to play my mixtape, since he knows me as "Joe from Essex."

* "Love Spreads," by Stone Roses
* "C'mon, C'mon," by The Von Bondies
* "Geraldine," by Glas Vegas
* "Flathead," by The Fratellis
* "Spaceman," by The Killers

12 p.m. Natalie Bulawka

I think it represents a good mix of artists with strong songs that weren't necessarily hit radio singles.

* "The Party's Crashing Us," by of Montreal
* "Eriatarka," by The Mars Volta
* "Episodes," by The Roots
* "Zero," by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
* "International Dateline," by Ladytron

4 p.m. Larry Kinsler

I've seen each of these artists at Bonnaroo and feel they represent the "flavor and atmosphere" that is Bonnaroo. There truly is something for everyone at Bonnaroo, and I intend to revisit as often as possible.

* "Illegal Smile," by John Prine
* "Zebra," by John Butler Trio
* "Panama Red," by Peter Rowan
* "Let Me Be," by Xavier Rudd
* "Soulshine," by Gov't Mule

6 p.m. Drew Hall

The last four songs my iPod played on random.

Cyril Neville Bridges B'More and NOLA

Few things go better together than the Neville Brothers and New Orleans. The ambassadors of Crescent City funk and soul close out Jazz Fest 2009 at the Fairgrounds on Sunday.

And to gear you up, tune in Friday morning at 9am to hear the youngest Neville, Cyril play some live music, talk about his new disc Brand New Blues and candidly address issues of class, race and music when it comes to his city's recovery (or lack thereof, as he puts it).

In fact, he had so much to say on the latter issue, that we're airing his morning session in two parts.

Aside from the yodeling of Aaron, Cyril's voice is distinctively soulful and delivered with a world and social conscience that recalls the spirit of his hero Bob Marley. Plus, his percussion prowess help make the Neville's shows such a dancefest!

Cyril Neville of The Meters and the Neville Brother on TMD this Friday!

Check out Cyril on the bongos and one of his many cool outfits!
