"It's Always Night, Or We Wouldn't Need Light."

That's a quote from Thelonious Monk, whose birthday is today. Columbia University's WKCR is playing his music 'til (heh) 'Round Midnight. Don't let their pointy-headed pipe-sucking four-eyed tweed-jacket elbow-patch weird-beard four-eyed ivory-tower blowhard DJs put you off this guy's music. [Via Metafilter]

On second listen, don't go. Professor Poindexter McEgghead won't stop talking. You can sample some Monk mp3s here. Maybe it's stealing, but you can tell the judge that the dateless big-brains at Columbia University drove you to it.
