Sound & Groove- "Songs Of The Celestial" Part 2
This here is the 2nd official episode of 2017 for the Sound & Groove Podcast but of course it's way overdue. Don't fret though. Another 4 will still follow here in the rest of 2017. This particular edition is the second of a 2-episode theme with songs of the celestial- ie dealing with or alluding to outer space and all the various orbital/flying objects found in it. How fitting considering the recent solar eclipse to cross the planet.
And if you haven't been keeping up with S&G on Music of Evan's Mind and/or its newest home at www.notthepublicbroadcaster.com, here's the breakdown: Every month there will be a theme that the selection of music is centered around. It will be jam packed with my analysis, synopses, anecdotes and other witticisms you might enjoy while I played edited-down versions of each tune. And not to worry, each month will contain a different theme than the last. Got it? Get it? Good. Happy listening to you all!

All comments, questions and feedback are greatly welcomed and appreciated! I encourage participation. Even though I drain an hour off your life by listening to the podcast, at least you don't have to fork over your money to me... though if you feel like it, you know... But in all seriousness, let me now what you'd like to hear or see and I'll consider it. Popular approval doesn't always sway me but having fans or listeners get their input would be just grand!
