Thanksgiving, and thanks for allowing me to take the week off. I’m headed off for a much needed break for a couple of days, but in the meantime, some great music that you will hopefully be thankful for.
This month is a great one for shows, and up soon are Kelly Joe Phelps at WECC on Tuesday, and our old friends the Wailin’ Jennys next Sunday, so some songs to get you ready for those.
I’m off to Minneapolis this weekend (I think), so a few songs in honour of that place.
Later on, a trip back in time to April 23, 2006 when Todd Hunter and Jeff Derksen from the Todd Hunter Band stopped by to tell us about their then new album, Life is Good. Todd will be part of a great fundraiser at the West End on Friday, October 12, and hopefully this classic live set will have you eager to attend.
