Yesterday we heard the sad news of the passing of Solomon Bourke. That, along with Saturday’s 70th birthday anniversary of John Lennon gave me a great start in terms of some points of interest around which to begin to build tonight’s show.

Add to that some new-ish music from Jesse McReynolds’ recent “Songs Of The Grateful Dead” CD, and a little bit of some Dave Getz (Big Brother and the Holding Company) and I think I had the makings of not too bad a show.
