This show featured an interesting mix of fairly straight and fairly odd music. Didn't quite plan it that way but that's the way it turned out (and I'm fine with that!). As well, there was a lot of new material but that seems to be the way things are going these days (new releases for the Christmas market maybe?). Also, I was Mr. Butterfingers on the board a bit today. Oh well.

Fave tune this week: "Karina" by Menahan Street Band. Thanks to CJSW Music Director Myke Atkinson who pointed me in the direction of this group.
