OK, what's the most popular symbol of Valentine's Day?

Uh - Cupid? Try again.

Uh....a heart?


And so Podcast 563 is our annual Valentine's Day mixtape, and this year the theme is - hearts. Each song has "heart" in the title, and it's a pretty spiffy group of tunes if I do say so myself.

Feel free to download and burn this one to a CD for that last minute Valentine's Day gift for your sweetie. Forgot a gift? Problem solved. You're welcome.
