[photogallerylink id=75446 align=left]Thanks to everyone who has joined the XRT Earth Day team that will spring into action tomorrow (I’ll be the one with the filthy mouth) for some tidying up on the northwest side, not far from the original home of WXRT. Check out how XRT rocked, rolled, and recycled this Earth Day at The Dunning Read Conservation Site.

Even a simple eco-assignment requires tunage, however, check out these earth-tones:

  1. “Third Stone From the Sun” by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jimi Hendrix[/lastfm]. Hint: it’s the one with all the wars.
  2. Planet Earth” by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Duran Duran[/lastfm]. Their first and maybe best single.
  3. “The Earth Dies Screaming” by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tom Waits[/lastfm]. Somewhere between a bang and a whimper.
  4. “Holding on to the Earth” by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sam Phillips[/lastfm]. Use both hands, please.
  5. “Good Morning Starshine” from Hair. I like the part where the earth says hello.
