Introducing Issa's Lit Rock Jukebox, an outgrowth of the special weekly music/literature feature, Issa's Sunday Service. The Sunday postings highlight rock songs that have some direct reference or allusion to literature - litrock, for short. To date, there have been 40 songs featured on Sunday postings; a list, with links back to the music and original posts, may be found on this standalone website. In addition, the Jukebox itself also has its own page.
You can listen to the songs featured on Issa's Sunday Service, either individually or in sequence, via the grooveshark widget above or on the separate page. Simply use the slidebar on the side of the juke to select particular songs from the current list. I've embedded the Jukebox on the sidebar on the right a bit of the ways down, after the listing of Issa sites around the web, for listening after this post is history. I will update the Jukebox weekly with the new Sunday posts.
And, as always, if you have a song suggestion for the Litrock Sunday series that passes muster, in appreciation I will be happy to send you the two current issues (or extend your current subscription by two issues) of Lilliput Review, free of charge.
