Program for June 17th is cancelled

The chronic medical problems which resulted in far too many show cancellations last fall and winter have been under control for some time. Today, they came back to visit, so it looks like this week's program isn't going to happen. I do hate it when this happens. I hate even worse having to disappoint all of you.

I might do a surprise show later on this week during one of the many vacant time slots in WHRW's summer schedule. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, please feel free to check out the podcsts of my three most recent shows. I'll hopefully be back in your loudspeakers next Wednesday, badder than ever!
