Today we remembered the passing of George Harrison, noticed that Chanukah starts on Wednesday next, observed a belated Thanksgiving with our American friends.

We were also saddened with the passing of Leslie Nielsen. I believe that he died in a hospital. That’s a big building with lots of beds, but that’s not important right now.

And then we played some blues.

And a little bit more.

Having had a dog of a week, I figured I might as well let the animals have their say in the music on tonight’s show.

So we have dogs and cats mentioned in many of the selections.

First of all, happy birthday to Sycamore no 1. You know who you are.

Tonight I felt like starting with a bit of classic Oz rock (well, Kiwi, really) but who’s going to deny that Max Merritt is a great?

Jimmy Barnes with Cheap Wine is a prelude to what I have lined up towards the end of the show, and then the ‘bone solo (I love ‘bone solos) in “Piney Brown Blues” by Jimmy McGriff with the Jay McShann really got me in the mood for some good blues, but not before a little bit of self-indulgence with one more ‘bone solo, this time from Bill’s Monkey (with my on bass) doing T-Bone Walker’s Stormy Monday.
