My friend Colin Hancock was my special guest on August 5.

Colin is a multi-instrumenalist, historian, and record collector.  Not only does he collect cylinder recordings, but he also RECORDS music using this 19th century technology.

Belated thanks to Tim Hertenberger!

A huge, way over due thank you to Mr. Tim Hertenberger!

Tim filled in for me on July 29, and did a fine show (my former apprentice Amy Frishkey engineered it; so proud of her!)

You can hear Tim on Thursdays, 11 a.m. to noon, with American Pop.  He and Louis Harrison celebrate the Great American Songbook.
