Thank you glenn! I think it's going to be a "thing" going forward, hopefully... Jas Nasty, I know! I almost didn't drop the original worried that I'm playing too much Sade if there is such a thing.

A rich cornucopia of colourful rhythms. What a shock to learn what the b-Side of Grand Phabao's "Tub" was... I used to love jackin to it, thanks to BadBoyBill & dj Dan, but now I'm way more into gettin' lifted Andub my Head, YuknÖ?

Show Idea: Breakdance Workout - a collection/historical progression/education on the songs that influenced your own breakdancin' & the Ottawa breakdance scene in general. I know you drop that science on a regular, but I thought a 2-hour show dedication would be great to share with my sister (Shanno Banano), living in Guatemala City, who has been teaching the local kids breakdancing for over a decade... her dusty iPod Classic has jams eternally, but I think a Lifeboogie Break Beat Session would bring mucho appreciated joy & new flavours. Here's a link to the breakdance section on her organization's website:

Scruffy Love the idea! I will start pulling tunes but it will take a while and won't be happening this week, sadly... But soon come!

4:11 AM, December 24th, 2020
Word!! Tranquilo, Tranquilo - no stress nor rush... it was just a little "idea seed"; something that might grow into a useable show theme one day down the trail... .. and to be honest, I think we all might need at least a couple weeks of a new year, new time, new reality before such positive vibes can be laid down with earnest. Prove Us Wrong 😉

Scruffy I will try!
