Radio Fragments - A Quick Breather

Well, I tell you, that was a hell of a couple of weeks, and it's not quite over yet...but I'm happy to sit for a couple hours, take a breathe, and inflict my musical taste on the unsuspecting airwaves and interwebs.

Songs about beer, songs about and by William Shatner, Pink Floyd done by a jazz trio, a game show host who does a decent job of singing. Oh yeah, it's the usual mix tonight.

Radio Fragments - Back from the dead mostly

Ugh, well, that was an unpleasant little cold. Stuck around for almost 3 weeks. Nasty. But it's mostly gone now, I can speak above a whisper, and I only cough a couple times a minute, things are looking up!

Since I was feeling more alive, I dug in and found some of my favorite live performances, and that's what I've got tonight! (Well, plus one studio track that snuck in, but I won't tell the music police if you don't). So turn down your hearing aids, hold your cell phones in the air, and stand by to be rocked.
