Shannon’s Fiat: Jeff’s 2017 Summer Songpile

Here we go again: best batch of songs that came my way from April through June. The title was chosen several months back…and now I can’t remember specifically what it referred to in the source…except that it’s Claude Shannon, not some woman named Shannon, and it’s a done deal, not an Italian sports car.
