A band far too good to be so stealthy, a talent much bigger than her time, cynical awards shows, and a Lucille Ball cameo. Georgy Girl, originally by The Seekers, covered by Carol Burnett. And a wonderful intro from listener Janie.
Outro music is Born Free, by Andy Williams, who gets the one-raised-eyebrow look for this...

It's easy to forget one of these bands had a huge hand in inventing heavy heavy blues rock, and it's surprising when a band they inspired phones it in. Oh Well, originally by Fleetwood Mac, covered by Jimmy Page with the Black Crowes.
Outro music is Evergreen, also by the Black Crowes.

Traditional music beats the modern in a classic battle, delivered with a wink and then by a band that only winks. The Devil Went Down to Georgia, originally by Charlie Daniels Band, covered by Primus.
Outro music is Welcome to Bucketheadland, by Buckethead.
And thanks, Zach, for another great suggestion.
