This edition of Breaking The Tethers featured a nice mix of tracks, performers, styles, old and new, etc. I even played a tune from a "smooth jazz" performer, Brian Culbertson (it was the only track I liked from the album). Variety is the spice of life.

I'll be doing the show on January 20 and then I'm away for two weeks, back behind the mike on February 10. Philip Barker from Morning Joy will be taking the Jan. 20 program (thanks, Philip!). I'm not sure who will be doing the Feb. 3 show yet.
