Thanks to Tom Banyai, host of Bluegrass Junction. Tom filled in for me so that I could see Bob Dylan and His Band, "best band in the land", at The Fleet Center in Boston tonight.

Tonight's show was dedicated to all the brave men and women who risk their lives so that America can continue to be "the land of the free". Thank you, and Happy Veteran's Day to you. We also celebrated Neil Young's 56th birthday [November 12], and we paid tribute to Ken Kesey, author of "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest", and founder of The Merry Pranksters, who drove around America in the Further Bus with Neal Cassidy at the wheel. The Pranksters were in attendance at the legendary Acid Tests, where The Grateful Dead provided the soundtrack by performing live , very psychedelic sets (for several hours at a time). Kesey died this morning at the age of 66 after undergoing surgery for liver cancer.

Because of my plan to use the new Bob Dylan song "Lonesome Day Blues" in my opening set, tonight's show turned into a four hour blues fest!

Thanks to Tom Banyai, host of Bluegrass Junction, I was able to take a much needed Saturday night off, and despite rumors of possible terrorism in Boston, I ventured into Cambridge to see the great Ray Davies do his Storytellers show at Harvard's Sanders Theatre. Absolutely brilliant! Ray was in fine form, and helped all to forget about the rest of the world for 2 hours. It was just what I needed to snap out of the funk I've been in since the horrible events of last week. Ray delighted us with stories of his childhood in North London, his family, friends, the formation of The Kinks and the events leading up to their first number one hit single, "You Really Got Me". Thank you Tom, and thank you Ray Davies.

Tonight's show was a continuation of Thursday night's broadcast, featuring songs which reflect the mood following the senseless tragedy in our great nation on Tuesday. We also heard more music from Bob Dylan's new album, "Love And Theft", as well as new music from Nick Lowe's "The Convincer". Thank you all for the overwhelming response to this evening's music. God bless America.

Quite a bit of new music tonight, plus a birthday salute to "The Dean of Nashville Songwriters", Harlan Howard, in honor of his 74th birthday.
