It all started with a Tweet. I posed a question to our World Cafe followers:

I received so many submissions, that I made a whole playlist out of it! So click "play" and strap in for a journey of great jams about "strumming the six-string" and "shredding the axe!" Enjoy this extended list of songs from the hour-long set on today's show – featuring Radiohead, The Beatles, Rosanne Cash, Chuck Berry, and so many more.
