I hate spending time apart. Don’t you?
Well, I may have been missing out on the show – which is normally one of the best parts of my week – but I did get to see songwriting legend and performer Allen Toussaint in Edmonton last Wednesday night. What a good time!
Now that I’m back in town, though, it’s time to get down to business – the laid-back, easy-going way! I picked up some new records while I was in the big city and I’ve already got them along side my steadfast favourites and random cool selections for tonight.
As you know, the last Wednesday of every month is Long-Play Wednesday. It’s all on vinyl record tonight, so pour yourself a drink of choice, pull up your favourite chair, plug in those headphones or just let the speakers play and let me guide you into musical happiness from 4:00 to 6:00!
