Thanks to Dave for letting me host this week. Technical glitches, incoherent ramblings, and inappropriate anecdotes aside, I thought the music was fairly decent. Well parts anyway.
Wanted to let everyone know that the Smithsonians "New Harmonies" exhibit will be at the Arts Center of St. Peter from April 30th - June 11th. Look for a couple of live performances, music documentaries, and other great events during that time. Contact the Nicollet County Historical Society at 507-934-2160 for more details.
