The Tom Malloys came by this week and Doug said to MJ, "Just let 'em play, we don't need to talk much."  Well I guess NOT!  It was quite the yak-fest and lots of fun with lots of traditional Irish music as well as original material.  They'll be back around St. Paddy's Day fer sure!

In the second hour, Cher Dial interviewed Adley Stump.

Our Fair City – a serial from HartLife NLF. After the End, when those who survived live underground in tunnels, an Insurance company is the defacto government. And we offer up the next 4 episodes in the series.

Tonight’s episode of Jet Set Planet (Friday Aug 3) features

*a guy who arrives to the party With Bells On (no kidding, Sid Bass really does)
*a horn player who puts out a record showcasing songs about booze
(yep, that would be Pete Condoli)
*a real stiff hack named Lester Lanin who wipes off the Lanicaine

doing that amazingly arranged version of Up, Up and Away)

Plus sleazy listening from the Mystic Moods Orchestra, Brian Auger,
Ramsey Lewis Trio, and Ekseption (making their debut on the program).
