"This program is theraputic for me and hopefully it will be for you.  A couple of hours to escape  and reset the brain. You can expect a healthy mix of blues, rock, jazz, funk, prog, psychedelia, stupidity and drama.  No rules, no pre-programmed playlists.  Have a listen.  You never know, it could lift your spirits or even piss you off -- and won't that be fun!

If you've been living under a rock for the last several years, you may not be hip to the Tedeschi Trucks Band. If this is the case, do yourself a solid and go here -----> TedeschiTrucksBand.com

This band is simply great. That's all I can say.

This live one has been in my ears and my head for quite some time....enjoy!

What's On The Turntable This Week?

I've got a stack of new albums that have my wheels turning this week.   A couple of them are well worth checking out.  I'm really into soul/R&B music these last few months. You might like these, too :

Cheese with Jam / Cheese with Beer

At a recent dinner party at Christine Potter's pad, I showed up with a couple bottles of the Smoking Loon brand wine and some cheese.  We discovered that Cambozola Blue cheese from Germany when combinded with Stonewall Kitchen Black Raspberry Jam can send your tastebuds in a dizzying dance of pure enjoyment and might even make you tingle in your boy-parts/girl-parts.   If you haven't tried this experiment yet, I urge you to RUN to your nearest market and give it a go. 


And while you're at it, another symbiotic relationship emerged when Gus Mason popped over to my house for some Sunday evening bombast.  We discovered that the seasonal Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye Ale went splendidly with a couple of cubes of Prima Dona Extra aged cheese from Denmark.  Now any aged cheese would be a good match for this, but we particularly enjoyed this one.  It's a keeper. 


Got Mule?


Just askin'!! Here's a goody from 2006.  Andy Hess on bass, since then he's been replaced by a badass named Jorgen Carlsson.
