Andy.....

This is one of your strongest programs....thanks for showing off the Jazz Oracle Robichaux, and you simply cannot go wrong with Curtis Mosby, Annette Hanshaw, some California Ramblers, and throwing in Ms. Tucker & Ms. Holman was great!

Thanks again for keeping up the noble fight.

Thanks! This felt like a really good program. And you could tell how thrilled I was to have the new Robichaux CD! (People really need to buy that CD, by the way.)

I had the "rehearsal" for last Friday up on live365 for a few days but replaced it with my aircheck of the WHCL version--which was a bit better.

Doing a "safety" version at home is no more work than editing what comes out of the deplorable studio CD recorder at WHCL. And if the aircheck doesn't come out, it works well enough.
