Some new music, some old music and a lot of me trying to convince our radio listeners to give the station some money. Our program director Angelo joins me towards the end of the second hour to help with the radiothon spiel.

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.
