Podcast #337 with Russ Van Cleave

Oh, man. ADD/C was right. Busy days, indeed. I finally found enough spare minutes to crank out another podcast. No particular format or theme here – just another grouping of enjoyable tunes that have been floating their compressions and rarefractions across the air molecules in the vicinity of my stereo. I am struck – having now looked at this list – by the fact that the oldest song on here dates back to about 1981 and only one other song here was recorded in the ‘80s, i.e. this is a relatively recent collection of jams compared to what I usually whip together. Times are weird and gettin’ weirder.
