There was a fund drive last week, but they seemed to run right over my
show. I was sort of disappointed and felt that it would be confusing
for folks who listen for me at 2, especially since my time has changed
and theres been little follow up to reinforce that. I had prepared
several spots for them to pitch around and offered many a cd donated by
great artists - everyones loss this time around.
On to this week:
