happy new year!  i’m on the road visiting family, and using my trusty mobile wifi unit.  just relaxing before meeting friends later, and can’t take the heat in the living room (literally… it feels like 35 degrees [like 95 or so, if you’re in the u.s.] in there, i keep passing out from the heat).  anyway, loaded up a thumb drive with a mix of concerts in mp2 format (which play in the car) & ripped cds, for the drives.  this was one of my favorites from the former, so far.  and the slim mp2 format won’t overtax the trusty but slow-uploading “mifi”.   this was another dime u/l by ‘hamhen’, back in 2013.  see below for a list of the other mp2 shows.

  2. Dear Pete, Happy New Year to you and yours and thanks for a great year of uploads and music sharing!!! You’ve got very eclectic tastes and musicuriosity and it’s great that you find time to share them both with all of us.
