Only 15 tunes in today's show? Well, that's because this was the Funding Drive 2009 edition of Breaking The Tethers and featured much more talk than music. All but one of the tracks had been previously played on Breaking The Tethers before (mostly in the past year) and were also included in the mixed incentive CDs that were offered during the show (all were taken, BTW). The sole exception was "Irish tacos" by Sinistrio, which appears on this year's "live at CJSW" double CD set (which is also an incentive offered during this funding drive).
BTW, $910 was pledged during the show today. This is a little less than what I had hoped for (I was hoping for $1000) but it's still great. Many thanks to those who made pledges!
I'll be back next week with the usual kind of show.
