It had to happen eventually, I guess. I can't log into my Spotify account, which I had planned on playing about 97.2% of my show from.
So we're wingin' it. Cheers!

Welcome to the second "all new music" edition of the Lost Music Saloon of 2014! Got a bunch of good new music coming your way, from better-known artists like Johnny Cash, Beck, David Crosby, and the Drive-By Truckers, to lesser-known folks who nonetheless have plenty to offer your ears, mind & soul. So Listen Up! - - you never know when you might find a new song or artist who's speaking directly to you.
I'm also going to be giving away two tickets to see The Infamous Stringdusters in Charlottesville this Wednesday, March 12.
So stay tuned, and click on 'read more' below for tonight's playlist.

Two hours worth of late night grooves of a boogie variety (more or less).
