//Call it celestial convergence: the rise of summer, the end of a school year, an important memorial anniversary...sometimes it's great to dj on a date such as this Saturday, where the songs I select will carry a meaning (at least for me) beyond just a party and beyond the now-pedestrian term "tribute." The universe keeps on turning and revealing. I hear you in the music and I see you in the stars, mom.
//As a treat and cause it's good timing, I have unearthed a mix I made back in '04 in which I put a great deal of thought into the concept and the selection. This is the first time I have made it available online. Enjoy.
