It has been several weeks since I have time to do any listening.  I run my own small business, and business has more than tripled since last year, so I have been working flat out 14/7.

Thankfully, this is a long weekend in Canada, and I managed  a few very enjoyable hours tuning my favourite bands last night.

Thanks for the shows!
