Brother, Can You Spare a Playlist

I'm always indebted to my fellow deejays and dear friends during fundraising, but never more so this year as you hear me fight my battle with H1N1. (Past shows are streamable for 2 weeks at wmbr.org and available for download at coffeetimearchive.org for a bit longer.) My deepest thanks to Rich Bee, John Funke, Jesse Kaminsky, Keith Sawyer, and Bruce Sylvester. And thanks to all who have donated or pledged so far, those who will in the future, and those who want to but can't, but still are out there for me every week. I'm very blessed in so many ways.
