NPR’s All Songs Considered contacted us the other day to let us know that they’s be featuring Messes of Men on their tribute to Steve Jobs titled “A Final Gift from Steve Jobs.” The twist isn’t that Steve Jobs personally selected these songs on his death bed but that all the songs on the playlist were selected by a 1st Generation iPod put on shuffle. So if the iPod is an extension of Jobs then I guess through some transitive property of invention we were selected by the man himself (but probably not).
Either way we’d like to offer our thanks to Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton for having our band on their iPods and allowing us to be a part of their farewell to Steve Jobs. And of course we’d be remissed not to offer thanks to and remembrance of Steve Jobs ourselves.With his devices we’ve made phone calls home to loved ones, found places to sleep, gotten our bus fixed, built websites, made t-shirts, and recorded and sold albums. Pretty cool.
