Why was there no post over the weekend?

Well, you might expect that with much of the country stuck at home, that I’d have had a nice long playlist of music. I sort of feel like we are the last busy people in my area. Both my wife and I are still working. She is on the frontlines as she is an RN in the ICU and is caring for Coronavirus patients every day. I am still working as well because it turns out businesses still need their forklifts functioning to keep everyone supplied with food and other essentials. In addition, we were moving house this weekend. With social distancing getting more strict, we had to turn down help and do it ourselves. So, there was no playlist as there would have been 2 days ago.

I will tell you, though, that I can offer something far better. My listening has been KEXP. They’ve always been my primary source for the music I share here, and lately they have been an absolute lifeline. Listen Live Here. This is not a programmed playlist. It is live DJs programming, and they have been a necessary link to community and humanity for many people during this crisis. Live programming is better, and right now far more than ever.

Stay Well.
