Well, maybe I am.
Then again, I put in a lot of time, blood, sweat and tears into production of this here show, this 3 Chords & the Truth thingamajig, so why shouldn't I jive you if I feel like it?
So I hope you enjoy the 90-minute program I've prepared this week on Tibetan throat singing and "the romantic zither" of Ruth Welcome. Naaaaaw . . . I'm just jivin' you!
See, there you go.
THAT'S CORRECT, after putting in the work and summoning the creativity necessary to conjure up each new episode of the Big Show -- and let's not even think of the Herculean effort that is saying something pithily original about the program every week, week after week, month after month, year after year -- I reserve the right to mess with your mind.
The show is free on the Internets but, no, there is no free lunch. Particularly since the "sequester" went into effect in Washington. So here's the deal: You get the best in freeform musical programming; I get to screw with your head.
Sound fair? Who cares?
YOU SEE, that Ruth Welcome album, The Romantic Zither, is on the shelf at the local Goodwill, and I am not afraid to pay the 99 cents.
Naaaaaw . . . I'm just jivin' you!
Or am I? Listen to the show and find out.
It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
