And we should note -- tomorrow night Mark Wheat will have the perfect Valentine's soundtrack for a romantic evening starting at 6 pm. He'll play four hours of the greatest love songs and there's still time to make your own requests and dedications.

After that, you can stick around for the broadcast of Seratones' passionate performance recorded live at First Avenue at our 15th anniversary party.
