A personal emergency came up suddenly last week so I rather unexpectedly couldn’t host my show on Friday, which totally bums me out. Fortunately, JJ at KRTU put together a show that still brings the newness at more than appropriate levels, though there isn’t anyone technically hosting. One could say that gives you even more time for newness. I was able to identify just about everything that played last week and should hopefully make up my absence next week when I come back for a return to form on Joe Sample Day (and then the real newness the week after that).
