A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Avatar 10:54am northguineahills:

I think it has already been dismissed, as my summons # and name isn't on the online database. My retired cop coworkers can't find anything. but they said it's better safe then sorry. That's what I get for being on a rooftop during July 4th when youngsters are firing off Roman candles, and let most of everyone go downstairs before me. (didn't shave that day, either).

I never heard of Llasa before last Friday, but she's great.
  10:55am Mark:

Trouble, I just moved here a few months ago, and your show has rapidly developed into one of my favorites. You're very good at feeling the vibe of the day and playing just the right music for it. That's a real art, and very few people have mastered it.
