Get Out You Gratitude, Battle of the Grandes and Black Friday at Homer’s

* NPR Music regularly posts online missives of themed playlists. As a list-lover and NPR fanatic I am always all ears.

Playing God

Pandora founder Tim Westergren stood alone on the empty oak stage floor of the packed Durham Western Heritage Museum auditorium, holding a microphone, looking like Peter Krause from “Six Feet Under,” and calmly told the audience of music fans, musicians, business people and tech-geeks what the future of the music industry looks like.
