Go ahead and congratulate yourself. You’ve come to the final post in the Audience Participation Series! For the curious sort, there were nine entries in the series. Thank you to everyone who chimed in with an idea. I appreciate your responses which allow this to be more than just a monolog every week.
What you have below is one of the most challenging mixes I’ve pulled together from a suggestion, which was “If you can base a mix around Warren Zevon’s ‘Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner’, I’d be impressed”. Well Jim, here you go.
I’m going to say it now before I forget: My summer hours kick in at the end of May, which means the blog will go from reliable weekly updates into an informal “post if/when I feel like it” hiatus in three weeks. Last summer I think I posted once a month but I promise nothing!Embed from Getty Images
