There were two features this week. First, all the music played could be said to be "new" or "fairly recently released" (e.g. late 2008). I didn't plan the show to be this way but, once I saw the amount of new stuff that was on deck, I said "what the heck" and went for it. Second, there were a number of quite long pieces played. Nothing odd there (it is jazz; tunes can be lengthy) but there were more than usual and only 16 tracks were played over three hours.

I might be away next week, I might not be. I could do the show but something has popped where it would be best if I passed on Breaking The Tethers on July 7. So, you might hear my voice in seven days or not. I'll definitely be on the air on July 14, barring disaster.
