July, July!

I haven't been posting much... I know. Sloth-mania, new job, and old reflections are keeping me occupied. I will be posting a WFF 2009 review very soon however. In the mean time, enjoy this visual collection from some very talented artists- Deviant Art. Of course, there's another corny harborstar music-show to sample from Playlist. And, I'll be on-air tonight for another musical round of "on the river".

My very special blessings for my best friend Brent and his beautiful bride to be Dalma. Your upcoming marriage consecration is in my heart and prayers!

A Prairie Home Reminder

Available now at your local Pamida...straight from the crystal depths of Lake Superior, North Star Productions presents: A Prairie Home Reminder. Not found in any slick coffee cafe, these thirty-six deliciously smooth cuts are compiled exclusively for the wounded and the triumphant. Over two hours of music with a rich variety of string wavelets and spirited folk, fuzzed guitars and pedal steel- banjo, dub, and horns to boot. A soundtrack sure to ease those mid-summer blues! Listen now on the playlist above. Enjoy in your backyard with ice caffeine drink and vinyl fold out lawn-chair.
