PLAYLIST FOR “TAKE A CHILL PILL WEEK” (10.15.22)

17 Oct

Inflation…Ukraine…Covid…Insurrection…Midterm Elections…Kanye West… Probably ready to reach for a Prilosec – or something stronger, right? Yes, the world is too much with us, so I invited my audience to take a chill pill and live in a chill pill alternate reality – but only a micro-dose and for two hours. The world was still waiting for us after the show. Sigh…
