Last night was the long-awaited and much anticipated return of the Mike Plume Band at the Pyramid. Unfortunately, Mike went on well after my normal bedtime. That, plus the return to the working world this week had me feeling really tired, and a little punchy today. All of this is to make excuses for my silly behaviour and poor planning. Luckily, I had some great music on hand to cover for my ineptitude. The first hour was a little slow and sentimental, the second hour we perked it up with some rockin’ classics.

This past week the world was introduced to the next generation of Tell the Band to Go Home hosts, my son Jeremy. He’s been filling our home and our lives with joy (and plenty of noise…) ever since. THe bulk of the show was dedicated to him, with some great kids’ music.
We went to the other end of the spectrum for the latter part of the show, paying tribute to a couple of dinosaurs who are coming to town in the next while, Neil Diamond and Elton John.

It’s a good news/bad news kind of day. The good news is that there are some great upcoming shows featuring the likes of Elliott BROOD and C.R. Avery, as well as some great new stuff. Unfortunately the bad news is that lots of my new music comes from the closing out sale at Candor. When the bad news hit that they were going to be forced to close down for a while, it came as a shock, so I headed down to stock up on some things that I hadn’t made a point of picking up yet, but knew I’d better while I still had the chance. They’ll be back, bigger and better than ever, but in the meantime, thanks for the musical memories and best of luck!
