The big item this week was that the 6000th track was played on Breaking The Tethers. Unlike most earlier benchmarks, I actually managed to remember that the 6000th level was coming up and plan accordingly. I selected one of my fave tunes, "Promises kept" by the late Sonny Sharrock, to occupy spot #6000. I've played it once before, on the very first edition of BTT, on July 4, 2006, so I thought it fitting to feature it as the 6000th track this week.

Next week, I'll post more about the annual upcoming CJSW funding drive!
