Post-election show today. Kind of bounced around the map. New music included The Fabulous Ginn Sisters, Julie Neumark, Glen Hanson & Friends, Erik Koskinen, Cyndi Lauper’s blues cd, and Elvis Costello.

Next week, the legendary Greg Carr returns to the airwaves as my substitute. Greg hosted the sorely missed Tuesday morning program “Dig Up The Roots” on KFAI for many years. I’m sure he’ll have a musicial treat in store for you.

Click on “more” below to link over to the playlist and listen to the show via the archives. The music starts about 2 minutes and 30 seconds into the archive, just after the news.

I’ll see ya’ in a couple of weeks.
