A long long week for me, but very worthwhile. On the program this week, a special appearance from Lethbridge soul/funk musician Ife Abiola, who mocked me relentlessly. Why do I continue to bring on such rude and clearly ungrateful guest hosts? (Truth: It’s ’cause they’re cute)

While I wasn’t able to make it to David Byrne in Calgary I did play a little something on the program today. If you saw the show, holla at me and let me know just how sweet it was.
