Todd, thanks again for hosting FORGOTTEN MUSIC! I always come away with recommendations for new music!

I'm also guessing that you might be hosting FRIDAY'S FORGOTTEN BOOKS while Patti Abbott is on hiatus. You are a tower of strength in these troubled times!

Todd Mason said...

Kind of you...and thanks for your consistent contribution...(feel more like a pile of something a lot these days, but, neatly bagged, I can be at least a useful levee).

Just a by the by, I ordered a CD for you, once it gets here and I send it along, from Mosiac, something I think you'll like. If only the damn thing would arrive!

Todd Mason said...

Wow, Rick...that's above and beyond...thanks!

Mosaic chooses to encode each disc by hand, after all...each little particle of plastic and other media glued in just so...
