Now that this week's show has happened in the past, the fact that it is - or was - about the past makes it seem, to me, more authentic, & yet more poignant. More nostalgic, & yet more wistful. More appropriate, & yet more regrettable. More timely, & yet more ill-conceived. You get the idea.
There is something I have to tell you. While I was live-tweeting the show, I was watching the last presidential debate. It didn't cause any major mistakes, though I missed some zingers doing airbreaks, but please don't think I'm a bad hombre for multitasking. At least I didn't come across as some kind of nasty woman!
Anyway, that's all in the past. The show about the past which aired in the past happens to exist now & into the future some at the Self Help Radio website. As was true in the past, to access the show you'll need a username & a password. These are on the website. They're not hard to find. The songs I played are listed on the website & below. The people I interviewed are not, however. You'll have to listen to hear them.
Now, to the future!
