Fanatic! Wow! It’s September! I know that it’s not fall on the calendar for several days but for me, it started yesterday. I did my best to get the last of my summer listening done in the last few days as I transition into autumn listening.
A lot to look forward to release wise. It’s not for me to steal anyone’s thunder but I will say that there are some fantastic records still to come this year and some great ones for next year. You know that as soon as get the green light from the labels, we will get them to you.
As you know, we program the show seasonally. At the beginning of every September, I look back over the summer to see if I got enough listening done. Last year, I let myself down a little but I think I made for it this time around. For June, July and August, I’m showing 313 records played. It might be a few more as sometimes I forget to write them down but most of the time, I do.
I’ve got a lot of shows coming up that will take me to almost the end of the year, so I may lose some traction on getting new titles heard but I’ll do my best from backstages all over. If you want tour date information, it’s here.
My new book Before The Chop IV is back from the printer and ready to go. We will be selling it on the US tour dates exclusively. Remaining copies will go to the site mail order in early November. All copies will be signed by me. My next book is at the proofreader, prepping it for 2019 release as soon as we can turn it around.
I’m listening to our play list right now in the hotel room I’ve been camping out in for the last few days. I think it’s a good one!
Here are some September reminders:
