Just flying by the seat of my pants tonight. As always it's a rough ride with plenty of turbulence.

It was a very emotional week for me, with the 50th anniversary of Buddy Holly's untimely death and the next day word of the death of Lux Interior. The Buddy Holly anniversary reminded me how old I am and the word of Lux passing reminded me also how vulnerable. After I read the news at work about Lux, I reminisced about him and the Cramps and the times we played together. With each memory, I realized I had a smile on my face. Lux brought smiles to many thousands of people over the years and that's how he should be remembered. My condolences to Ivy. Most of my best rock 'n' roll stories involve playing with the Cramps. Something incredible always happened when Lux and the gang hit the stage.

I have received several requests to post this show. I Hosted the "River City Limits" show on WRIR, which is the local music show, for the first time on 01-24-09. Tim Barry, the singer from Avail and solo singer/songwriter, was gracious enough to come in the studio to play 3 songs live and put up with my lame interviewing skills. Tim is a great guy and I was very happy to finally meet him. I think his performance was awesome and I want to share it. These are the songs on this podcast: church of level track (from the lp, "rivanna junction"/suburban home records) • prosser's gabriel (new!) • ronnie song (from the lp, "manchester"/suburban home records). I want to thank WRIR's own Alan Coberly for engineering the live performance. There are a few hiccups on the stream, due to our new upgrade still needing tweaking, but it does not really interfere with this great performance. Enjoy!!!
