w00t! I found the song I was looking for. I called the station during your show and asked about a song that I described as 'second or third' with a rap/reggae sound to it. (turns out I was a few songs off on that one but the description was about right) I tracked down your blog and found it was M.I.A's Paper Planes for which I was looking.

Great show!
