Along with about a third of the population of North America we planned to travel this holiday season. In our case it meant a trip to Kalamazoo MI for a gathering of the clan, the first in over 2 years. We booked the flights several weeks ago optimizing for cost over schedule. As a result we were booked on a 6AM flight.

After years of the gracious hospitality of a long-time friend Dreamland Blues Radio is moving to a new home. I was not able to finish construction of the new site before the old site was taken down so things are up in the air for a bit.
Fear not, after 9 years I’m not about to give up now! Talk amoungst yourself until I get things patched back together.
Yes, I know.. I’ve been horribly neglecting my blog peeps of late but I’ve been busy. No, really! There was this guy and he had a dog that could speak…
