Happy Spring (Incuding Back To Basics…)

Hello, kiddies.

I’ll keep this short and sweet since respite time is at an all time premium. Three months to get a lot of pent up frustration out of my system, and I plan to use each and every day of it doing exactly what needs to be done. Gee, I wouldn’t know it was really spring by looking out of my front door. I just have to shrug my shoulders and move on I suppose. I played some nice 45’s last week; there’s a good start… nothing fancy,  just the basics, but they all sounded good. Enjoy.

As always, now that I’ve finally figured out how, you can listen on-demand with the player thingie below. Imagine that 🙂
