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.
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.
