Secret Music News, December 2018

Hi -

  The end of another year, and time to look back. It got cold way sooner
than expected here, and things have been much busier than usual. Nice to have a little time
here at the end of the year to relax and catch up. It's been a good year
for music, and I've had some new people come in for interviews and
performances, as well as some old friends. It's a lot of fun to see and
talk to the people that send me the music I play. There's a human
connection there that can't be overstated.

  And there's been a lot of good music, too. Some from newcomers, and some
from old favorites. And surprisingly, some very welcome reissues of long lost
material. In this day and age, I'm surprised that new music is coming out
at all. Though I suppose that the reason is that people follow their
passions. And I hope that continues. I don't know what the future will
bring, but hopefully good music and getting to meet the people that make
it. Winter isn't the easiest time of year to book interviews and
performances, but if you're up for the challenge, let me know and we'll
work something out.

   I've gotten some great new music lately, and I always appreciate it. If
you've got something new you'd like me to hear, just let me know. CD's are always appreciated,
but downloads are fine and dandy as well. Whichever you prefer. There's a
few of you out there that I haven't heard from in a while. If you suspect
you're one of those people, get in touch and we'll compare notes.

  Here's my address for those of you who need it:
