You might know that I'm a big fan of Jake Shimabukuro, who is probably the greatest living ukulele player. His latest album, Peace Love Ukulele features his standing-ovation cover of Bohemian Rhapsody that he performed at TED last year.
I interviewed Jake at TED and asked him to play on old Hawaiian song for me. He is a great musician and a very nice person. So I'm happy to announce that Jake has agreed to allow Boing Boing's readers to select a song for him to perform on Boing Boing.

Thanks, Jake!
