Right now most of you are probably busy listening to Episode 2 of the Mercury Music Hour, but if you just can't get enough—or if you're too poor to afford expensive AM radio technology—we've got the first episode available to you now. Listen to last week's show right here on the End Hits, or download it in MP3 format and save it for later.

Today's a Monday, but going forward we'll be uploading each week's episode on Friday afternoon, so for instance you can get our brand new Episode 2 on End Hits this Friday. We understand if you can't wait that long—that's why you need to crank up that AM radio every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at noon, or stream it over on
