Last week’s live show was cancelled because of weather, mostly because I’m still under the weather. If I make a full recovery – or even a half-full or half-empty recovery – I’ll be back live with a show that tests peoples’ ability to do two things at once.

PLAYLIST FOR “YOU BE THE JUDGE” (12.2.17)

5 Dec

Well, I’m finally back from being under the weather…I guess that means that now I’m over the weather. Last Saturday night, I let the audience play producer in the privacy of their own homes. I played two versions of the same song and listeners could decide for themselves which was the better singer, or interpretation, or arrangement. Luckily for me, no one got so good at the process that they asked to take over my time slot. Phew.
