Joy, Joy to my Playlist & Clavicle

Thanks so much to John Funke of Backwoods and Alex McNeil of Lost & Found for filling in for me the past two weeks. I broke my collarbone in a clumsy mishap and am on the mend. If you ever need an orthopedic surgeon in the greater Boston area, I highly recommend Dr. Leo Troy of Pro Sports and Mt. Auburn Hospital.

Also special thanks to one more WMBR deejay, my good friend Julia Goldrosen of Africa Kabisa, who took such great care of me. And thanks to all friends who spent long soothing phone calls with me, sent sweet get well cards and/or emails, and posted messages for me on the digital pathway.
