Happy Inauguration Day! I find myself filled with hope and optimism, almost despite myself given the past four years. I recognize that there are no magic bullets — politics in our country has a long way to go before I’d call the system ‘healthy,’ but I’m hoping this is a step in the right direction.
In any case, this week’s show highlights things that make me happy.
Things like musicals (Guys & Dolls, My Fair Lady) and Harry Connick Jr. and Emily Cole and YouTube videos for Baby Can Dance and God Moves On The Water and swing music out of France and Israel and Turkey and all the other fabulous places where, as bad as things might get, people remember to swing!
So here are a few things that make me happy, and I hope they make you happy too!
Does two shows make a streak? I’m saying yes. Good job, team, pats on the back all around. Too late to make it this week live on the air, but I’m going to post on the site anyway, as this is the (quote/unquote) permanent home of the show, while all other locations are temporary and tertiary.
As always, boatloads of new music, including tracks from Albanie Falletta, Birch Pereira, Canibal Dandies, Emily Estrella, Jonathan Doyle, Hot Sugar Band, and many, many, many more. Enjoy!
