Today is Pete Ham's Birthday (Badfinger)

Badfinger were a star-crossed band, seemingly in constant turmoil with their manager and, at times, each other. Two members of the band killed themselves, yet they wrote some of the most timeless melodies of the early 1970's. Today we'll hear Badfinger's "Baby Blue" and a great cover from Aimee Mann, from a star-studded tribute to Badfinger from 20 years ago.
