Hi, Rob and pals. Nice to play the show outside for a change. Happy that spring is here.
Hello from California
Greetings Chresti, KHP and everyone! This week's show has a local angle although a lot of the artists I play may be coming your way too (depending on where you may be dear listeners) - for example Combo Chimbita will be in LA and SF mid-May as part of an extensive album release tour...
Ditto from California.
