The live-music birthday show, 1/13/08

This was the birthday show -- over the years Amy Gallatin and I, who share a birthday, have had a few musical birthday parties at my house. Since our birthday fell on a Sunday this year, we decided to invite some of the same musicians who've joined us in earlier years to come to the studio and do an all live show (except for the first selection, played while we got organized), plus others who may not have been able to make those parties.

We were ably assisted by Neil Smith, WHUS's Broadcast Technician, who volunteered to come in and set everything up, and then keep it running!
