Hey, I’m back!
I was in lovely Portland for a week, and Joe Kozera filled in for me last week. I hope you enjoyed the change of pace.
I won “Best Radio Show” recently at the Dallas Observer Music Awards, and I want to thank all of you, since I get most of my ideas for music to play from listener suggestions.
