Thursday and Nobody Asked Me But...

As always the flip of the fedora to Jimmy Cannon for this column---


1)            We will forego  the commentary this week due to all that bad weather and I am sure  we, in the telephone booth we share, will not be too upset about that.   We are a small group for sure.  A larger group if you are inclined to tell your friends and relatives.  But, if you are inclined you are slanted and that is of no help at all.

2)            One item that does need mentioning is the election.   

3)            You can decide what that last line should be.

4)            A few concert and misc. updates—
           Nov. 17   Acoustic Cafe     Park Ridge NJ Phil Ochs Song Night w/ an all star cast
          Nov. 18    Borderline Folk Music Club in New City NY (2 PM)  I will  be MCing that and am delighted to once agian meet and greet the wonderful Priscilla Herdman.

5) Playlists will be once again-weather permitting---- posted next week.

Having been remiss due to various weather events---and one is occurring right now---let me just make mention of 3 events that I do believe will be of great interest.  The price for each event is a fraction of what a show in NYC would cost but the enjoyment is not only on a par but will exceed you expectations--

PHIL OCHS SONG NIGHT---Acoustic Cafe  in Park Ridge, NJ  11/17 8PM
PRISCILLA HERDMAN----Borderline Folk Music Club, New City, NY  

I will be MCing the Borderline program.  Hope to see you at both. 

My hopes that all are well and recovered from the storms that have decimated many of us and that we, who are with power and amenities now once again appreciate what we have here and also feel and help those who have been devastated.  

Politically;  I am not only delighted that my candidate won but also that the other person was gracious and that our system surely beats any other when it comes to the passage of power ---to use the Caro book title.

Tomorrow it Thursday but given the weather events another Nobody Asked Me But...will have to wait.

An Interim Message

As you can see there have been no Playlists published nor any other things   All due to the storm conditions and I will say I count my blessings in having certain difficulties but none of the magnitude of some other sad and unfortunate souls.

By next week the radio programs will be on track (hopefully) and all our lives will be the same (hopefully).   I hope you will be tuned in on 11/11 for both programs as we recall and some sad major events and also let you know of some wonderful concerts to relieve you of today's myriad problems.

Let me just tell you of the events here, briefly:

PHIL OCHS SONG NIGHT---Acoustic Cafe in Park Ridge NJ.  Nov. 17.  8 PM
PRISCILLA HERDMAN----Borderline Folk Music Club, New City NY Nov. 18  2PM

I hope to see you at both events---or at least one.  Let's say hello and, perhaps, chat a bit.
