At CJSW, Breaking The Tethers falls into a class of program called "mixed block". I think this week's show very much merits the "mixed block" label; it was very much a "mix". A particular (unplanned) feature of the program was the fact that 20 of the 27 tracks were pretty much brand new (and a few of the others weren't too old e.g. 2010 releases). There were also a few nifty titles this week, such as "German taco" (Brad Shepik Quartet) and the "Here's to toast" pair (Afuche).

Next week's edition of BTT will feature a split-host format. I will only be behind the mic for the first hour (I have a conflict that I can't alter in hours two and three) and then the one-and-only Myke Atkinson will take over from 8-9 am and from 9-10 am. Myke has covered BTT a few times in recent months and will be a great host.
