Playlist: The Hear & Now for August 13, 2009 - 7:00am

Includes tributes to the late Mike Seeger (1933-2009), Les Paul (1915-2009), and Rashied Ali (1935-2009), plus a self-indulgent anniversary celebration of Derk's first date with Robin (to see "Easy Rider" in Westwood Village), lo, those many years ago.
