We specialize in lists. This may be our favourite: a list of all the records stores in the country who are giving away a free iTunes download card with one track personally selected by each of the Short List nominees. They’re in stores from coast to coast. If you like any of what you hear, go back and buy the whole record! Record stores! Still the first and best social networks!
