I liked this show a lot. Lots of variation, both in time and content, but there were still a few concentrations e.g. there were a number of tracks that leaned in an experimental direction and over half the pieces played qualified as "Canadian"; I don't think I've played that many Canadian tunes and performers in one show before, though I might have come close.

I won't be on the air for next week's show, Tuesday, August 4; I will be on a short vacation. I'm not sure who will be filling in for me but I'm sure they will do a good job. I will be back behind the board on August 11.

BTW, this is the 100th post on the Breaking The Tethers blog.
