Thursday, March 5


Well then....

All good things, as they say, must come to an end. Now, I don't know that this blog ever really qualified as a "good" thing, but, from June 4, 2005 to March 5, 2009, it certainly provided me some much-appreciated distraction from the real world.

I've always assumed that I would keep this blog going for as long as I was alive to do it, and so I have. But change is afoot, and the time has finally come to put this thing out of its misery.

I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed visiting here. I hope that you have been able to discover some new and interesting songs and artists within these pages. And I certainly wish you all the very best in your future endeavors -- be they musically-related or otherwise. Aloha.

Truly loved the blog, and you more than most others have consistently introduced me to new artists that I can appreciate. Hope all is well. I am going to miss this regular stop, but I'll be checking back with hopeful sentimentality every once in a while.

Thank you for all,and a big hug from Portugal.

"So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me"

Thank you...

You have open my ears to so much great music, and taken me out of my 60s music rut.

Thank you for this blog. I wish you would reconsider.

This has been an incredible blog. Some of the mixes you've posted have gotten me into some great bands I'd never hear if not for you. I especially enjoyed your 80's mixes as well. Thanks for all the music!

THANK YOU!! This blog has been a tremendous help to me in discovering new music - your tastes are remarkably similar to mine so I can truthfully say that I love 95% of the music you presented. Sorry it has to end, but I can imagine it takes quite a bit of time to maintain the high level of quality of this blog.

Good luck and thanks again!
