Kicking off the dust...

OK!  A mere three years after my last post here, I guess it's about time to freshen up the blog, especially since I am once again starting to occasionally host The Songcircle on KBOO, and because dozens of peeps commented on my LocalCut review of Adam Lambert's concert and may follow the link here.  So, hello if you have, sorry about the bare-bones blog, and I'll start posting here more regularly, or trying to..!

Meanwhile, I have been sharing rare music on my spiffier other blog, The Rare Stuff.  Feel free to stop by and have a look around!

Howdy again

Hello to any newcomers who followed the link over from LocalCut. Pour a cup and have a seat. I know the digs aren't too spiffy around here right now but pardon our dust, etc. Scroll down and you'll still find a couple of worthwhile things to read. And definitely click on the Archives for June of '06 for my Thorn Festival Hit Parade of songs about P'town. The article actually dates back to 2004 however.

I promise I'll post tomorrow's playlist promptly, as well as last month's and what I can reconstruct of the Neil Young special too, as requested by the commmenter to the March show's list. I'll also post the list on the KBOO site for the first time.

Tomorrow I welcome not only Portland's great Richmond Fontaine, but Virginia's swell Devon Sproule. I'll also touch on Memorial Day as well as tributes to Bob Dylan's birthday and the 10th anniversary of Jeff Buckley's death, not to mention of my arrival in Portland.

Join the Circle!
