So it’s the middle of September, what do you have to show about it? Will another month go by before you get your ass up and finish all those projects you said months ago you would get to? What’s your deal?!?!?
September is supposed to feel crisp; the smell of fall in the air. I think it’s getting warmer? I also have to remember that I live in the Bay Area and our summer doesn’t arrive until now anyway. Here come the warm jets! Let’s hope they leave the orange sky out of it.
I celebrate my birthday month during the first hour with songs of September. Some are even hits!!! Don’t tell my boss or they’ll take my cool underground radio card away. Check out the live cuts in the first hour: Buster Poindexter??? Big Star???
The second hour is all about the late, great Jimi Hendrix, who passed away 50 years ago on September 18th. I was to pop out of my momma 12 days later on the 30th. That’s right, I’m about to hit the big 5-0!!!
It’s all good. I’m having too much fun to stop now.
Check out the all-live Jimi Hendrix hour. Sheeeeeeeeeit, you have never heard this stuff, is my guess. I have dozens of amazing Jimi bootlegs. I didn’t even scratch the surface. But you knew that already.
Get your guitar God headphones on and enjoy this second hour.
Tomorrow, September 22, is my wedding anniversary. Saucy Hell and I have hit the magical seventh year of matrimony. Where has the time gone. I performed “Kathy’s Song” on acoustic guitar, at my wedding reception (making certain not be nervous in front of all the amazing musicians in the room like Eric McFadden and Mark Growden). What a wonderful day and long night that was. I share a story about that night during my show. Be sure to take a listen.
Keep music in your life, it’ll help see us through.
