    A recent discovery, really enjoying this blog! Brought here from reading Jonathan’s interview with Rick Harte, and from here listening on Internet Archive to JP’s excellent (multiple-repeat-listening-able) guest appearance on Alan Patterson’s online radio program, “Anything Could Happen” episode featured some wonderful music, mix of of stuff we love with things had never heard but great. Thanks for the great writing, anecdotes, insights.
