Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

Did you know King Tut’s original name was Tut-ankh-ATEN, not Tut-ankh-AMUN? That’s because young Tut was the son of Akhenaten, the 18th Dynasty Pharaoh who experimented with a very early form of monotheism based around the sun god, Aten. I mean, if you’re going to pick one primary thing to pray to as a god, the sun’s a pretty damn good choice.

Eventually, things reverted back to the old polytheistic model, and Tut’s name was changed to something that fit in better with that.

Now you know! I bet that’s a relief.
