I've been invited to be the guest on a local radio show on Sunday,June 11 at 6-7pm.
The host will be asking me some music/life questions and I'll play a few tunes.
Her show can be heard in real time by streaming on
Locally it's 93.3 fm

I might sing one.

.... Or my foolproof* method??   Just put it on the calendar [i.e. the one on the wall, not the one in my computer or mobile device... whatever that is].   wink

* = so long as I check the calendar..... which hasn't always been the case.   sad

The host of the show was called away last weekend.
I've been rescheduled for tomorrow (Father's Day) from 6-7pm.
I made up three sets of notes entitled Playing,Singing and Talking.

Taking a guitar for a couple of singings to break up the "banjo tunes only" feel.
With only an hour I'll choose a handful from:
Grandfather's Clock
Steel Guitar Rag
Soldier's Joy
Dear Old Dixie
Dixie Hoedown
Don Stover's Old Liza Jane
Dusty Miller
Salt Creek (we have a lot of salt creeks along the coast of Maine)

Singing: One Eye Open
On & On
Columbus Stockade
Don't Have to Be a Baby to Cry
Sawin' on the Strings

Talking about:
Growing up in a musical household
Meeting my Country Choir band by going to Farmington on the GI Bill
Playing for Vaughn Meader
Meeting Sam Bush and John Hartford because of Vaughn
Losing my ability to play for 5 years
Bela lesson
and whatever else crosses my mind.

I drove uptown a couple hours ago to find the radio station house.I'm glad I took the time to do that as it's tucked away on an easily missed little street.

Some friends are visiting from 2-5 to play so I should be warmed up.

My host recorded yesterday's show and left me a link in my email.
Now I just have to figure out how to post that link to here.
