I’ll be one the air for a short hour spinning lots of new records. It’s the first time I’m going to be spinning without any guests in a month, so I may have to play two things at once if I’m going to air everything I want to fit into the show. Play list below the fold.
Afterwards, I will be heading over to catch part two of Omega Sound Fix II. Hopefully I’ll be caught up on work tonight and I can see more than a set or two.

I absolutely adore the Mozart Church Sonatas. I’m not exactly a Mozart person, but all four of these sonatas on Dennis Nygren’s recent album (who also arranged them for the ensemble we heard) is fantastic.
The last two piano works I played were fantastic! That would be the Joan Tower and Emma Lou Diemer. So much good music for piano out there… so little time.
I did my best to play as much music as possible today, so minus the weatherman banter, it’s pretty much an injection of relatively short movements. Music is, after all, the best.
