Yes indeed, especially on a day like today. I see Fishbone on the playlist. Saw them at Bluesfest--they were fantastic. Ever hear their song Karma Tsunami? (my favourite of theirs).

Yep, it was Fishbone playing when your first message came in. I don't know Karma Tsunami! I'll have to dig it up and play it next time I'm in!
