This was the last Breaking The Tethers show in its original time and day, Tuesday morning, 6-9 am. It was pretty much a normal show though I included a few old favorites (e.g. the May 1966 performance of "My favorite things" from Live at the Village Vanguard again). Interestingly, I ended up playing a fair number of tunes that come from 1998 or 1999; I'm sure how to explain that... oh well. The last piece on the program, "Lonnie's lament", was the first thing I played on Breaking The Tethers on the first show, July 4, 2006. As today's show is an ending of sorts, I thought it was fitting that the last track should, in a sense, echo the first. In addition, today's "Lonnie's lament" was the 4000th piece of music played on Breaking The Tethers.

I'll be away for about a week and will return on Monday, March 1 to host Breaking The Tethers in its new day and time and with a revamped format.
