    Good list. If you haven’t already, you might like to check out “Wooden Head” by The Proper Ornaments. Very, very good.

    John Richards, I saw you recently on SEA TV(?) w/Lord Huron and a couple of other groups, really enjoyed the program. Question, who else was on that program, seen maybe a week or ago……Randall
