runwithcraigfinn If you know me even a little, you know I'm a huge Hold Steady fan, and I'm also a huge fan of Craig Finn, the band's singer.  I've gotten to do a run with him and hang out with him a couple of other times (that's us all sweaty over to the left).  So when I heard he was doing a recording at KUTX's Studio 1A, I asked if he'd want to do a song for the show, and I was thrilled when he immediately said yes -- and even more thrilled when I thought of the song "Forever Young" for him to cover.  We got to play it on the show this week and it's just stunning.  Enjoy! 1st set They Might Be Giants - It’s Spare the Rock ID They Might Be Giants -Zeros Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Max Roach - A Little Max ID Frances England - Charlie Parker Renee & Friends (feat.
