Yes, last post was in February of 2017.
No excuses, but sincere apologies.
In that year, I’ve been listening to music, mostly via Sirius XM (don’t get me started on how they bungled The Loft.) I was a member of the Loft’s Facebook group and the spinoff Loft Refugees, but I quit them both since they devolved into bitch posts about how awful “the suits” are for taking away our treasured station and moving the on-air personalities to other stations. Oh yes, I’ll miss them all, but this has always been the way of radio. It’s a business and when business isn’t making the dough, decisions must be made to reverse the trend. It’s not pleasant, but until someone figures out how to pay the dj’s, pay for studios and electricity, and server space, etc., it’s the way it is. There’s public radio, but even those have constant requests for money via their never-ending pledge drives.
So, I spin Spotify and play my own library on Google music, and I just returned to amy beloved Radio Paradise. They play such an eclectic mix of music, and Bill and Rebecca, the hosts, are very laid-back and don’t interrupt very often. It’s “listener-supported” without the constant begging.
I’ve also discovered archive.org’s vast holdings of concert audio and other tasty delights. Here’s one from The Weepies, whom I’ll be seeing in Medford, MA in just a few weeks. This is from a show they did in 2015.
Love and Kisses.
