The MERL (Museum of English Rural Life) went viral in 2018 over its “absolute unit” sheep. Here’s some more about the museum and how it uses social media (I am a big fan of the MERL).

Did you ever wonder what music the Apollo 11 astronauts listened to? Now there’s a playlist and some stories about how they came to be.

Music news from Zazoo: Bootsy Collins is hanging up his bass (for live performances), and Duran Duran once took on Spandau Ballet in a televised pop quiz!

David Maurer was fascinated with language, especially crime-related slang, and we’re lucky he wrote (most of) it down for us.

Have a spiffy and safe weekend, everyone! See you next week.
