that's how i feel tonight. the past week has been absolutely crazy with unforeseen computer problems, so i'm very happy and relieved and thankful that episode 62 is here on schedule! it's a small thing. yes, i know. but one much savored by me. i feel a sense of accomplishment. generally speaking, i'm not a highly tech-savvy person, so, when things don't work as they're supposed to, it usually takes me way
too much time to unravel. and, honestly, being the "computer-tech guy" for simplemuzik - by default - is just about the most dreaded part of the job for me! no. fun. seriously. but, alas - happily and thankfully - it paid off. and episode 62 is here to prove it! whew.
as a result of my skittishness about over-taxing an ailing system, i kept my talking to a minimum this week, and tried to keep the focus on the artists and what they're doing. and that seems fitting to me, because we have some really amazing music and talent this week. i'm excited by the way the boundaries of the show, musical and otherwise, are stretching and growing... i see it as a deeply beautiful thing, and i know i'm lucky to be sharing this with you. i'm happy that you're here.
with that in mind, i'm honored to introduce some new artists to the podcast this week! i've mentioned jesse and elliott before, and want to thank them for so being patient with me as i've tried to find the right context for their songs. i think we did. and tonight is it. as you'll hear on the show, their bands govangogh
(respectively) are doing stuff worth your attention. i hope you'll pursue them, and find out more. also, i want to send huge thanks and a big welcome-back to true margrit
