This last week of February marks 11 years since the debut of this humble blog.
As I write this, I’m listening to “Testify!” the WFMU radio show hosted by my friend Larry Grogan, whom I know well but have never met in real life. He, of course, is the proprietor of the mighty Funky 16 Corners blog and streaming radio empire.
As I look for songs to share with this post, I see all the cool covers downloaded the other day and recommended by my friend Jameson Harvey, whom I also have never met in real life. He, of course, is the proprietor of the fine Flea Market Funk blog.
As I consider the 11-year journey, a shout-out to the fellow bloggers I’ve had the pleasure to meet in real life, my friends Jim Bartlett from The Hits Just Keep On Comin’, Greg Erickson from Echoes in the Wind and Joe Accardi from Life Out Of Tunes.
Thought about something from “11” by the Smithereens. Nah, everyone knows that.
Thought about something we could turn up to 11. Nah, not the weekend yet.
Thought about an 11-minute song. Don’t have one.
So let’s just enjoy Garland Jeffreys covering the Beatles.
“Help,” Garland Jeffreys, from “14 Steps To Harlem,” 2017.
