I've been rather personally dejected lately and this show was on Inauguration Day, which many people, including myself, didn't find to be the most inspiring of occasions. Nevertheless, the show must go on. In fact, it being here is a respite, so I'm glad the show is here and that there's still art to lift our spirits from time to time. I have to keep reminding myself of that. Thankfully my Fridays (and your Mondays) do that for me to a certain degree.
The Line-Up for 20 January 2017
The last show of the year is always a weird one for me. The Season of Lists is already passed. There's still some year left and the ongoing job of finding new music for the week is still a thing, though it feels more like a carryover show with some extra lag time than a restart of the new year. Still, the last Line-Up of the year is still a new Line-Up and that still something.
The Line-Up for 30 December 2016
I didn't quite know what to do in the lag from the conclusion of the Season of Lists and I didn't want to play Christmas music (especially since the stream would exist throughout this week and why play Christmas music in the week after Christmas?) so I went through my personal list of favorite jazz albums and put this show together in a jiffy. This does sort of make yet another batch of blurbs a bit difficult since how much more can I really say that I haven't said already in the lists? (So I didn't.) However, it continued the holiday cheer.
