The Jewel Case: California (05.02.19)
It’s a special edition of the Jewel Case as I prepare to pull up stakes and head west to start the next chapter of my life in California. It’s bittersweet; I’m very excited for the change, but I’ll miss my WYSO and Dayton families- especially those of you who call in during the shows. I AM still continuing the show, though; I’ll be prerecording the show remotely and sending the episodes to WYSO for broadcast, same bat time, same bat channel. Hope you’ll continue to tune in, friends. I think the best might be yet to come.
It’s no big secret that I meticulously plan out these shows. My occasional guest host, Andy Valeri and I cherry pick some of our favorite tunes about the Golden State and chew the fat about them in what promises to be a FREEWHEELIN’ MUSIC NERD EXTRAVAGANZA, so join us, won’t you?
