Thanks for listening, Dave and Lisa P. I'm so glad the music is moving you. As an old hand once said: "If you can't dance to it, it ain't worth a damn."

If you listen to this on demand I'd appreciate any comments. I do come back to the playlist to read what the listeners have to say. Thank you for letting me into your ears.

Apologies for the Hank Davis track. There are 38 tracks on his disc and I don't think the station's CD player can handle that much music on one disc.

Catching this on a rainy Sunday afternoon on the West Coast. Made me smile and tap my toes!
