Rural Ledge-ucation #52: Tax Deductible

Yes, I realize that this year's tax day is on Tuesday, April 17. Most years, however, April 15 is the day of sadness - the day when you have to file your taxes and quite possibly write a check you pray will clear the bank. Today's show collects tracks that unites many genres of music - it doesn't matter if you're a country, punk, blues, or mainstream rock band. You're at some point going to be upset about your taxes. Granted, The Who's whine in "Success Story" is a tad more self-serving than Johnny Paycheck or Sharon Jones, but nobody except for Warren Buffett has a smile on their face after a visit from the tax man.
