After reading your comments about the Smith/Blackwell album at another venue, I thought it might show up on your show. Thanks. I think I have a new #1 on my "to buy" list.

i'm on temporary hiatus from both shows at kbcs. shattered my right elbow in a freak accident. surgery, week in hospital, now have a butt-ugly and very uncomfortable brace on right arm. can't use that hand or arm at all. looks like a long healing/recovery... arm bends about 30 degrees on a good day, less on a bad one. tons of physical therapy to go. doing everything with your left hand is a bitch, especially when you live alone. tasks that took seconds become chores that take many minutes. all of my creative outlets are on hold: the radio shows, the freelance writing, the drumming... gotta find new ones for awhile i guess.

I'm still on semi-sabbatical from the shows. Doing alternate weeks this month on Bright Moments and (hopefully) returning to the regular schedule with both shows in April. Thanks to everyone who has offered their Good Vibrations for healing, and extra-special thanks to Jan Grodecki and John Seman for sitting in...

Sorry to be at the tail end of this but I will check out your show. I like the programming. Sounds like a fresh alternative to the standard instrumental hip-pop fusion bullshit that dominates the air waves.......
