Competing with a lot of events and some great weather, but maybe a few of the usual cast opting for live radio?

Can' t even afford the live radio , but just loving it. Lots of time to voyage and explore those far less affordable for me musical vistas out there. Was thinking about flamin' groovies all day, serious.
