Thanks for listening!

I think George Manury's new E.P. is excellent.  He's one of the best singers we have here in Windsor.  Dang good songs!  And this is the kind of simple packaging I like for a CD -- a card stock envelope with good graphics.  It's got no spine, but both front and back covers are memorable.

... even the disc itself features a great letter...

I foolishly wish for do-overs on a couple mixes today... particularly The Shangri-Las.  There's Mary Weiss, emoting her broken-heart out, on a song I've been waiting weeks and weeks to play -- and I start up the perfect follow-up song too early.  My dj heart is broken now.  The girl-group gods are not smiling.
