I'm happy to be sitting in for Jeff this morning while he's out gallivantin' about. I hope faithful listeners of his show found something to enjoy among my selections this morning.
I opened the show with a set of terrific music from Guinea, Ghana, and Mali. That was to honor my sweet little niece, Taylor, who just arrived in her new home in a tiny village in Ghana--beginning her two-year stint in the Peace Corps. I'm one helluva proud aunt...
Threw in some Mardi Gras music, a train set, and music touching on themes presidential (it is President's Day afterall!). I hope you caught the lyrics to Let'em Eat Moose.....too funny!
Keep listening....and thanks for keeping up your support of this magical radio station.
