This was another "new" show. All the material was "new" in some way; newly recorded and released, newly re-released, or newly dug out from the vaults. As with the other "new" shows I've done recently, this wasn't really planned; it just kinda happened.

I really liked pretty much everything that was played this week. My top faves: "Between B & C" by Hebden & Reid, "Reliquary" by MMW, and "March of the elephants" by Rob Mosher's Storytime.

I was out-of-town and couldn't host Breaking The Tethers last week. Marc from Heads Telling Tales filled in for me. Many thanks to Marc. I am in his debt.
