Howdy folks. Tent Show Radio will not be airing as usual this Saturday, Sept. 5th on all WPR stations, but instead tune in for Big River Radio Wave Special from WPR. Other stations will hear Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
In this week’s episode’s monologue – delivered from the backstage dressing room with the one lonely little lightbulb burnin’ –Mike discusses his diastema and why he is worried his daughter’s orthodontist might be spending all his (Mike’s) money on
bubble gum. You can join the Tent Show Radio Facebook page here.

A moment of silence, if you will, for Great-Grandma’s 7 iron, which outlived her for a decade, but succumbed tonight during a vigorous round of clodhopper apple golf. Our loss was tempered by the delighted laughter of an 8-year-old member of the matrilineal line, who just loves it when we play this game with a purpose, delivering airborne applesauce to the chickens from about 30 yards out.

Even at my non-famous level (9 out of 10 times no one recognizes me at the Farm & Fleet) (and then half the time it’s a relative, neighbor, or Moose Country 106.7 listener), my calendar is such that I meet many, many thoughtful people in passing and simply cannot do justice to their kindnesses or adequately recognize their hard work or support their latest project the way they might hope. I keep a box of books and notes and CDs and miscellaneous objects given to me on the road, and when I can I jot a note or make a mention. Thus, Posts from the Box.
Thank you to Jeannie, who gave me this at a reading a while back. Always touched when people do something nice just because. Also wish I could draw like this. And appreciate that she kinda held back on the gray eyebrow(s).
