In 1985 (ish), I picked up an album called “Nocturnal Playground” by a guy named Russ Freeman.
Little did I know that 20+ years later I’d still be listening to the Rippingtons, Freeman’s band.
I only mention this because I’m going to see them tonight in Cambridge with our good friends, Liz and Leo.
If there’s anything noteworthy, I’ll post something over the weekend.
I will say that I’m psyched to know that Kim Stone is playing bass again. He’d left for a brief hiatus.
That means nothing, right?
I’ll tell you all about Kim the next time.

Hi-ho, Hi-ho…


ps. if you’re reading this LG, bring an extra “key” in case they still can’t find the one they lost the last time we were here.
I wonder if they know “Beautiful Goodbye” yet?
