Catch you in October

As I told you during today's Just a Taste, I'll be away for the next few weeks, returning in early October. George Fuller or David Kimball (or someone) will sit in for me while I'm away. My thanks to them. I'm not entirely sure, but my current guess is that the first show I'll do upon my return will be Combo Plate (3-5 PM) on Friday, October 7.

And don't forget...October is Big Band Month on Just a Taste, Thursdays from 11 AM to 1:00 PM.
