New Year, Good Song to Kick The Blues

Couldn't take one more minute of the insanity on the radio news today. Coupled with this half-hearted Alberta Clipper chill, the pipe bursting on the street (fill the bathtub--quick!), and the Guatemalan dudes taking down dead timber showing up at 7 a.m. (still not finished!!) it all just made me feel lower than low. Then I spun the dial...thank heaven for the Baltimore radio Alamo-- WTMD and the wit and talent of Chuck Prophet. Take a pull.
