    this is a very good thing! it was 101 here weds..i’m pretty sure this crap is headed your way!

    • Kat Says:

      Thanks, Greg

      I think you’re right about the heat, but it is not predicted to go as high here on the Cape.

      It was the extended weather forecast which got me going on the air conditioning. Mid to high 80’s is heading this way.

    Branching out from Folk is more than a good thing young Kat. I used to be, for a couple of years, stuck in 1956-59 & rock’n’roll.
    There is just so much fabulous music out there just waiting for you & everybody else to discover.

    • Kat Says:

      Thanks for the advice. I have been loving the weekend postings so much I decided it was time to move on to all sorts of music.

      You are so right, as always, about all sorts of fabulous music out there!

    Do I even need to weight in on this one? You don’t have to completely abandon folk, but you’ve sure generated a lot of interest with the expanded music selection.

    • Kat Says:

      Thanks for letting me know. It is so much more fun going through my music files and picking the songs for my moods or my postings or even the weather.

    Why not? Post whatever you feel like.
    As a faithful listener/reader I’m always curious what comes next.
    There are only 2 categories of music: Good music and boring music.
    And almost all the music you posted belongs to the first category 🙂

    Btw, my mood for music changes with seasons, weather and daytime.
    In wintertime I prefer folk, the warmth of McGarrigles, Roches,
    Sandy Denny and others. Also some Jazz / Blues like Billie Holiday.
    Sunny summer days are perfect with harder King Crimson, Iggy/Stooges, etc. In between Wainwright III, Mike Watt, Erika Stucky, Terry Reid, Jazz, etc.
    And at night alone in the car it’s great to listen to Bach, Haendel, Moondog,..
    Though American Folk is my musical home,
    you can see I’m not a purist 😉

    My Coffee regulars are all for this so I’m breaking out! Besides, it is fun for me to poke through my files to see what I have.


    My music changes based on my mood as well. The seasons also play a part in what music I like to hear. Just as I love comfort foods in winter, I also like comfort singers, those that have been with me as favorites for ever. Night is for blues and jazz. Summer is for breezy, fun songs. I just love to listen.

    I’m a tea-guzzling Coffee regular and my two words are “Marky likey!”

    • Kat Says:

      You have indeed been a regular for a long while, long before those Orioles changed the best logo in baseball to a caricature!

      Thanks for liking the new move!!

  7. Hedley Says:

    Seriously? 🙂

    • Kat Says:

      My Dear Hedley,
      Is it because you are surprised? Is it because it is obvious?

      • Hedley Says:

        Kat love the surprises , even Lennie, go as your mood goes, pander to im6, do it
        Up in Stratford Ontario….omg

  8. Kat Says:

    Pandering to im6? Nope, not me, except for an occasional Beach Boys. It is summer, and they are the summer kings of music!

    Even Lenny? Yikes!!

    Like the Duke said: “if it sounds good, it is.”


    • Kat Says:

      Thanks, Mark

      I was chaffing under the bit and knew I had to widen my music.

  10. Caryn Says:

    I didn’t know there was rules! 🙂 I just figured you put up whatever you liked.

    • Kat Says:

      No rules, Caryn, but this started with folk music all week and a variety on the weekends. I have so enjoyed the variety that I figured I’d branch out all week and play some favorites, some oddities and some great music.
