"Off the Dial" January 29, 2016

(Week 449)

This RADIOLA! cannot but celebrate, despite a particular setback.

You may listen to RADIOLA! online here, thanks to a gracious and clever listener. This may or may not be a podcast. Or try this. Each RADIOLA! program is sent to subscribers on my mailing list (email here).

The very first issue of The Syncopated Times is off the press, and it's beautiful. Charter subscriber Glenn Robison dedicated much of his Rapidly Rotating Records for January 24, 2016 to the happy event. I am most grateful!
