I’ve been out and about creating new experiences for myself. Last week I was touring with Michael Franks and we had the honor to go to Tblisi, Georgia, a republic of the Soviet Union. Wow, I’m still trying to find words to describe that experience. I would have to say that it is in the top 5 of my Life Changing Experience list. The warmth and generosity of the people there have renewed my own faith in life and being human, not to mention reaffirming my reason for wanting to be a musician in the first place. Serg, wherever you are right now, I am formally thanking you and the wonderful crew of partners that you worked with to make it possible for us to play there. You’re the man!!!!
While on that neck of the tour, we, of course, visited Russia of the Soviet Union.
Now on to even more exciting news. I’ve just been added to the playlist of WBGO, and for those of you who are in the New York, New Jersey area, that would be 88.3 on your FM dial. I’m in heaven. Those of you who know me, know how long I’ve been out here playing my music. I moved to New York about 27 years ago and I have been listening to WBGO for 25 years. To finally get radio play on this station, my favorite has become a dream come true for me, but more than that it’s like an affirmation for hanging in there and continuing to “beat the dead horse”. I would like to thank Gary Walker the music director for giving me an opportunity to get my music out and around and also a warm appreciation goes to Dan Karcher. on air, for his support and reminding me about my Blog. Oh, and one more thing, congratulations on your 25 years of great music WBGO, I’m looking forward to listening for another 25 years.
