Someone Call a Cop

With all due respect to Misters Holly, Valens, and Richardson, I suggest that today is truly the day the music died, as it is the day that the powers that be at the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences decided to eliminate the Best Polka Album category. Thus, barring some sort of crazy miracle in which he wins a folk music Grammy, Jimmy Sturr will never be introduced as "19-time Grammy winner Jimmy Sturr." Bury the rags deep in your face.

In better news, (a) there will be a new category for best Americana album and (b) Mr. Sturr has wisely returned to using polka-related puns for the titles of his albums, as his next will be entitled "Polka Cola."
