Howdy,

Received a CD from Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks in the mail a few days ago. What a blast from the past! The CD was Selected Shorts from 2004 but heck he was doing the TV show circuit, including the Flip Wilson show, back in the 70s. Raise your hand if you’re old enough to have seen The Flip Wilson Show back when it was on prime time TV and not the TVLand channel.

The CD’s I’ve been enjoying the most recentlyis Paul Thorn’s  Pimps and Preachers CD. I guess I’d file it under blues rock with some twang thrown in. Anyway, I’m putting several of his videos on the web site over the next week or so.

I’m liking the Sadies CD too. I’ve only listened to it once or twice. Nothing new from them really. But heck, it’s the Sadies. Come on.

Dig Deep,
Calvin
