“Such sweet compulsion doth in music lie.” – John Milton
What do National Geographic librarians do on their days off? Would it surprise you to learn that they continue to obsess about libraries and books? When I’m not at work, I deejay at my online radio station, Radio Sweetheart. This week, I’m playing songs inspired by libraries, books and reading. Among the highlights:
- The “Little Prince” tames Regina Spektor in “Baobabs”
- The Divine Comedy sings of the frizzies and Fitzgerald in “Bernice Bobs Her Hair”
- The Decemberists spell out “Bee Season” with “Song for Myla Goldberg”
The book mix will be playing from 9am-5pm ET each day during National Library Week. Listen here.
