Here it is… the first full length podcast since October.  For this one, we say good riddance to 2012.  Its been one kick in the balls after another.

I’ve decided playlists will no longer be “visibly” posted however the playlist is available here (opens in a separate window).

Thank you for your support and patience over the year, especially over the past three months.  Things are slowly returning to normal.  Happy new year, I hope…


for Katherine… you’ll be sorely missed.

  1. Well done Doc;
    Only just back online to find you once again, after, like you, various losses from a pretty miserable -12:
    on a brighter, coincidental note, in my last local rad show* – also a tribute to loss – I also selected the (now legal!) live Gig track as part of it=’great minds think alike’, perhaps, huh?
    Soon as the associated finances recover, promise I’ll be contributing again.
    All good regards
    * Yep, ‘lost’ that, too :-(!

    the end of this podcast reminds me of the floyd show ,that i just saw, in bb kings in nyc, the other day. Joe, the lead singer and lead guitarist, is leaving the band, for new things, after about 30 years, playing ,in the band “the machine” Joe ended the night with “Goodbye cruel world” . i know he didnt mean that ,dead on, but it was a great goodbye song, just like “two suns in the sunset” ,its a meaning about ,moving on, and really enjoying life ,after a great run!

(THE SOUND OF 2 BEERS CLINCKING AGAINST EACH OTHER, FOR WISHES OF ,A GREAT NEW YEAR)

  8. Great to hear you back in shape again, Doc. Nice set, esp. the CWTAE from Pompeii. Interesting to hear that out of context (without the visuals). Coincidentally, had just heard the Oakland 77 version again recently, so the two versions were a nice contrast. esp. from this vantage point in time. As always, thanks for all you do! May 2013 find you back on top, where you belong!

  9. Thanks, Doc!

    So glad you’re back in the saddle again. Hope you’re feeling well, and very much looking forward to listening to the new ‘cast. In every way, 2012 has been a pain of a year. Moving forward, hopefully, will be nothing but good things.
