The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

This is a great set, Irene,
Avatar Mon. 4/1/13 12:20pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

...a song title that was rightfully the destiny of TOE FAT to release, but history would prove to be not so amusing...
Avatar Mon. 4/1/13 12:21pm joe:

You have done a wonderful job so far of creating a sound of Spring.
  Mon. 4/1/13 12:28pm fredrik in gothenburg, sweden:

Avatar    Mon. 4/1/13 12:45pm Sem Chumbo:

Well, Irene, I did not think there was music to massage spreadsheet entries by, but this Banks work is it, today.
  Mon. 4/1/13 12:46pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Fredrik, check out the album "The Raven that refused to sing", it's a thing of beauty.

Please forgive me Irene, but gotta go, it's time to tune in for the first game of the season and this season feels like it's going to be a long one, have a great week, everyone

Enjoy Sean! I'm waiting for my Braves to play tonight :)
  Mon. 4/1/13 1:01pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

This is such lovely accompaniment to open windows.
Avatar    Mon. 4/1/13 1:03pm Van in DC:

Not a Nats fan but love watching games in their ballpark. Wish I were there now! I am a Strasburg fan though.

You just made for a most enjoyable lunch break here in Ypsilanti Mi. thanks Peace.

Beautiful weather for opening day, Van.
Avatar Mon. 4/1/13 1:20pm Chris from DC:

Or at least it looked that way a few minutes ago.
Avatar    Mon. 4/1/13 1:21pm Van in DC:

Yes indeed Chris. Had a most enjoyable stroll around the National Mall today amid the throngs of visitors. The Magnolias outside the Castle, in the Haupt Garden, smell so wonderful!

Saw Daniel Bachman and Eric Carbonara last night, and this Don Bikoff is similarly fine stuff.
Avatar Mon. 4/1/13 1:59pm Irene Trudel:

Cool Chris! I think Don is doing a show in NYC with Daniel late this month.
Avatar    Mon. 4/1/13 2:27pm Van in DC:

I'll have to rewind on archive later to catch what you had there, KP...been out for a bit
Avatar    Mon. 4/1/13 2:32pm Brian in UK:

Hello Irene, bit late tonight late Easter dinner before the family spreads to the four winds. Amazing how popular The Bonzoes are even today in the US.
Avatar    Mon. 4/1/13 2:33pm Brian in UK:

@KP Dear Eloise is spot on.
Avatar Mon. 4/1/13 2:40pm Irene Trudel:

@Brian, I still remember the first time I heard "Tadpoles." A high school boyfriend had just gotten a copy and I was fascinated by the "rotating" artwork on the original cover. Of course, the songs were both a throwback to an earlier era and modern at the same time. Always brilliant!
Avatar    Mon. 4/1/13 2:56pm Van in DC:

Thanks and have a wonderful week Irene!
Avatar Mon. 4/1/13 2:58pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks for listening everybody! Catch you next week at noon.
Avatar    Mon. 4/1/13 3:00pm Van in DC:

I'm sure Sean is happy right now...his Mets are up 7-1 in the 5th
  Mon. 4/1/13 3:01pm Listening Out There:

Thx, IT!
