Spin the Globe Playlist for 22 January 2010
Music from the Hottest Places on Earth

As a mid-winter break for those of us in the northern climes, we took a musical visit to the hottest places on the planet this week. You can find a list complete with temperatures here. What did we learn? That no matter how cold it gets here in the Pacific Northwest, I’m not planning a summer vacation to Al ‘Aziziyah, Libya (136 degrees F!).
