Episode #105 Re-defining psychedelic soul for my friends, WORLDWIDE

9:59 am

I made some new friends this week on Facebook. Apparently, a lovely couple from Manchester, England typed in “psychedelic soul” in their new phones, and they found me. I am SO PLEASED! Alejandra & Michael were about to travel to Israel when we connected. I am so happy to know them, and they have inspired me so much!

So in one show I will do my best to re-define what psychedelic soul is- with the music.
It came out pretty well! It’s a fine show.

It’s been a tough year. Bowie. Prince. Muhammad Ali. Maurice White. Gene Wilder. Gary Shandling. Flo Henderson. Abe Vigoda. Brexit. Standing Rock. Trump. We can ALWAYS use some new friends.
