"We Got Golden Voices, And Hearts Of Steel!"

Thanks for listening!

Here's the direct link to the CJAM archive of this show.
(The link is live for about 4 or 5 or 6 weeks.)
Due to a technical glitch on the CJAM website, the clock was nearly 4 full minutes off and the show starts halfway through the old school epic That's The Joint by Funky 4 + 1, which is a real shame.  That song builds beautifully, with great lyrics. At least the bass pyrotechnics are on full and glorious display at the end of the song for the "Winter of Wimbish," which is winding down, unfortunately. Spring is right around the corner. The drift of time on the website has been fixed for subsequent shows.

Oh, you can now subscribe to The Snark as an iTunes podcast, which is highly convenient because the show just automatically downloads directly into your computer every week via your iTunes account (available to anyone with an e-mail address). Of course, if that means you never visit this lowly blog ever again, it'll be a dark day on the old blogspot. Come back, dear listener! For the accurate publishing information alone! You know I'm always wrong, or forgetful, when I'm live in the studio - that's one of the functions of the blog!

Thanks to Pat for the Martin Basic Music, converted from cassette tape by someone at some point in time! Who? When? I don't know! Great to hear once again the CJAM chart-topper from 1983 -- on CJAM!
