We're Back! With Stu's Faves #7 in memory of my brother, Stuart McKenney, who died three years ago. He left behind an enormous collection of music, and while I love music (and like to think I know about a wide variety of musicians), most of his music is completely unfamiliar to me. It has been fun digging through and listening to it and finding new favorite bands these last few years. And I haven't even made a dent. It has also been cathartic and helped to keep Stuart's memory alive. Hope you enjoy listening!

Tonight's Lost Music Saloon will focus on duets - - more specifically guy/girl, male/female, man/woman duets. Some very new, some many decades old; some will be familiar to regular Saloon listeners, some are fairly obscure. But all of 'em are good music!
I'll also be giving away two tickets to go see the Beatles movie 'A Hard Days Night' at the Byrd Theatre this coming weekend.
Stay tuned, and Enjoy!

It's my birthday. I have no birthday songs, just a bunch of awesome ladies making your Monday morning suck less.

That mix of stuff I've found lately that I meant to play last week but didn't get to as well as some stuff I picked up and stumbled across this week!
