In honor of Larry David's 62nd birthday we just wing it. Unfortunately, we were off the air for most of hour one. In hour two we reflect a bit on Michael Jackson's passing.

Our annual Paul McCartney special (falling on his actual 67th birthday) operates discreetly in the confines of our blues marathon. Yeah, Sir Paul has done some bluesy things - so we throw in a bunch along with the other Macca melodic classics and unreleased tidbits. A good time is had no less with lots of requests, a nod to Mr. Edison's 51st birthday but sadly no Susan DeVita to speak of (poor girl - couldn't make it).

The show opens with 37 minutes of songs relying heavily on "A" chords. Then, a small Anthony Braxton birthday celebration ensues followed by various songs from some new comers. Meanwhile,a bunch of frustration is continually revealed as CD player 1 refuses to play automatically and my ipod decides to stop playing for no good reason. Laura Tabacco drops by and gives me friendly advice about getting one's blood pressure checked.

This week I had no idea what to play and so it's a hodgepodge that for some reason had listeners calling in to pledge money. Some new material from Ms. DeVita and lots of old stuff no one ever plays anymore.

Various music in odd time signatures. Things that sound influenced by Zappa and the occasional forgotten old song plus a few new ones by local artists.

Suppose to have a guest but - no show. Instead we plug the Ed Palermo show at 5 Towns College 2/6/09 and play various new songs and some esoteric JT things and tell a seemingly pointless story about Andrew Gold, Wayne Fontana, Billy J Kramer, James Sereda and the late Clint Ballard jr
