It’s kinda hard to think about what to write when you’ve in the midst of crisis. Curve balls, pot-holes, bumps in the road – all ways of saying the same thing really …that life can be pretty nasty sometimes, and all you can do is hold on and swallow hard. Anyone who’s followed me online the past decade+ now knows my wife and I got bad health news again this past week. She and I both survived very scary health issues a couple of years ago, and now we’re facing another. We’re fighters – so we expect the same outcome now as we’ve experienced in the past – success …and nothing but will be acceptable. We’re great at hitting curve balls and getting alignments after falling into potholes.
Did something new this week on the show. I’ve been searching and asking for good clean radio friendly comedy for several years now … and I finally got some! Tobias Livingston from Greeley ponied up and sent a live bit he recorded last summer. SWEET! Can’t wait for more.
News broke mid-week with pictures on FB that the Psychodelic Zombiez are back in the studio picking up where they left off 23 years ago. Babaganouj anyone?
HOT HOT RUMOR — from inside source … posting on FB with picture — The Railbenders are back in the studio for the first time in MANY years. More news to follow. Just something here to wet our appetite a bit ..
