Went back to work on Tuesday. Drove down to my son’s for Thanksgiving on Thursday. Thanksgiving with the family went well. I’m pretty much back to normal with my knee. Stairs are still a one step at a time thing, and I’m not quite ready for road races, but all has been good with my knee. The pain at night isn’t as intense as it was, either – it’s getting easier for me to get to sleep and stay asleep. I’m almost normal.

Let’s get back to normal with today’s podcast, which has these normal artists: Van Morrison, Tindersticks, Angel Olson, Nick Cave, Yeasayer, the Dirty Projectors, Cream, the Pink Fairies, Peter Stone Brown, the Jeff Beck Group, the Four Tops, the Temptations, and Stevie Wonder.

This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
