A lot of songs mostly under three minutes for no apparent reason. But then again, this is CLAM Radio, so that kind of goes with the territory.

Rickety segues due to unexpected CD player problems. Me, flapping my mouth and occasionally choking from the disintegrating sonic foam on the wall all the while trying to raise some money. Help!

I awoke out of a deep sleep only to realize I had 10 minutes to get to the radio station. So most of this show was done while I was still waking up. Somehow, my somewhat incoherent rambling raised $100.00 for the Radiothon - go figya.

My guest is talented singer songwriter, composer and keyboardist Andrea Daly. We discuss the origins of some of the tracks from her new ep "Moving Through This", she plays some songs for us live in the studio and we ponder on the politics of selling music on the internet and elsewhere. Marvels await.

Various new JT related music plus we send out positive vibes to singer songwriter Peter Kearns who is trying to recover (again) from a horrible earthquake that struck his New Zealand home town, Christchurch. We also raise our musical ears to Steely Dan's Walter Becker who turned 60 this Feb. 20th and bid farewell to power pop songwriter Will Owsley who passed away this week.

We honor the recently deceased 20th century composer Milton Babbit and we talk with composer, singer- songwriter and professor at Stony Brook University, Mr. Daniel A. Weymouth. The music here is mostly non popular stuff but well worth listening to if you want to widen your musical palette. Dan also sings and plays two songs live in the studio.
