Fanatic! Ugh. My Florida shows have all been postponed. We are waiting to hear when they will be rescheduled. I was supposed to be out the door for the airport now but things have changed.

I hope you have been enjoying your October so far. I have to be honest, I have been getting some good listening done but not nearly enough. The last couple of days have been busy and blurred. I went from Johannesburg to Frankfurt to Los Angeles right into a ton of work. I got it all done but was up for 24 hours straight yesterday. I don’t know why but that’s what happened.

This is a great month for listening to incredible amounts of music. I hope you are getting this done! Now that I have this delay before my shows start, I am going to take in as many tunes as I can. Listening to the Kim Salmon/Spencer Jones collab Runaways right now. Great!

Below, you will find some great music. I think we have done it yet again!
