The smell of desperation is still strong despite the windshield-wiping of the New Years Eve of Destruction. This year I resolve to do better and to push myself over the top of my medulla oblongation to you, my assorted nuts and bolts of Erato’s vision. May you all lose  those 10 pounds and nasty habits that you’re really afraid of losing, as they will not take the best part of your being with them!
So fans, put the ice bag and the resolutions back in the freezer and come greet the new year swinging! To the now/wow groovy  sounds of  the A-Train Orchestra.  The famous father/son combo of Rik and Alek Razdan, newly banned from Rockport are comin’ at you with a bucket full o’ blues, missile parts, and saxophones, ready to destroy your will. And we will!
They’ll be joined by their Stygian minions featuring Mr. John Hyde, loving husband and jazz snob, on  keys and accordion, Mr. Dan Whalen, on qatar, Mr. David “Doc” Vincent on upright drums, and myself Salmon Dave Sag on eructions and interruptions. Should be very interesting. If you blow into anything except a handkerchief or a breathalyzer, this is the night to sit-in, so look out for  brass interruptions of any variety. You never know who’s gonna show up!
And again, thank you all for a wonderful year. It was the seventh! Looking forward to the eighth! And we are nothing without you, the viewer! So stay tuned!
