In some ways, this was a somewhat mellower show than usual, at least at points. Still, there was the usual spoonful or two of experimental/freaky music.
Fave stuff this week: Ibrahim Abdullah, Jazz Side of the Moon (did you know that there is a reggae version of Dark Side of the Moon? there's probably a version of DSOTM in every genre of music!), The Fully Celebrated (who can resist a title like "Reptoid alliance"?), and Will Bernard (I've been waiting to hear the Blue Plate Special CD for a long time).
I'm going to be away for a week and a bit and will miss hosting two episodes of Breaking The Tethers, May 26 and June 2. Philip Barker from Morning Joy will be taking over for me on May 26 and will do his usual great job. I'm not sure who will be doing the June 2 show but all should be well. My first show back will be on June 9.
