There's some stuff  that slips my mind right now, but this will do.  Probably the defining trend in my musical collecting this year is the ever-increasing importance of finding new music online. It's juts a no-brainer, especially for feeding new music into my radio shows.

Thanks for reading my blog during the past year, I appreciate you dropping by. I hope you have a good Christmas and a happy New Year. As the Specials sang, enjoy yourself - it's later than you think!
