Blessings upon him! Terry Adams of NRBQ, in whom Chuck Berry and Thelonius Monk meet at the keyboard, can't understand why I'm not world-famous and is determined to do his part to make it so. Terry will be the guest on Bob Brainen's show on WFMU this Saturday morning, November 23, from 9-11am, and will be playing selections from my CD, First Ones, and the unforgettable Whoops Wrong Daisy, a song by Flutterbox, my daredevil bass & voice collaboration with bassist laureate Neill Cardinal Furio; he came to hear us when we played at MassMoCA awhile back and has been somewhat obsessed with ever since. I think Terry is at least 50% right when he says the only reason Daisy isn't a favorite of folks of all ages around the globe is that it's too long to play on commercial radio. So he has, with our permission, re-mastered it for the WFMU show, and probably the rest of time. If you can't tune in this Saturday morning, I'll understand. I'll also post the link to Bob's show archives so you can listen at your leisure. Terry also has one of the greatest record collections in the world. Even if he wasn't going to talk about me, I'd still tune in! This photo is by Mike Lynch, from his website. Terry has quite the hat collection.

I want to make some SEMI_FREE currency but my attempts so far have not met my high standard for illegal tender. Recently I came upon the work of the collage artist known as Amiro in an overview exhibition at the Gerald Peters gallery on the UES. Couldn't find a website for him. I love this work. It's very SEMI_FREE.
