In Brief: Independence Day Edition

Here is your regular Sunday selection of links to online audio, online video, and other good things in Blogville and Beyond. (After clicking to an audio or video stream, press the "Play" button to start the broadcast.) The list is shorter than normal this week because the France Musique Web site is undergoing a renovation. We are assured that the concert streams will be reinstated in their new form soon.
