Out like a lion

Well, Smarch is pretty much over. (Simpsons reference...)

It's been a busy month for me personally, but doin' a-okay. I've always got the music, my awesome weekly show and this amazing station to keep me going!

I had a great show today, playing some different tunes. I try my best to share music and talk about the meaning behind it, whether that is a factoid about a certain artist, their song title, the lyrics. Always searching for that message behind the notes. Sometimes I even go so far as to share things I've seen on social media - i.e. poor Jim Bryson tumbling off a ladder. (Wishes for a speedy recovery, pal!) Though I will say, I do not and will not ever take my fact-sharing to tabloid proportions, just general tidbits and well wishes.I dunno, maybe it's silly, but I try to do this so people feel connected to the artist they're hearing.

Anyhow, here's my playlist for Thursday, March 27.
