Music This Week Nov 23rd thru Nov 29th

Hey there,
I hope y’all have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
I’m back from Florida. I left for Hulaween Oct 25th and returned last Thursday. I haven’t had time to edit and post Hulaween yet as the friend I was staying with doesn’t have internet but mainly because she lives 20 miles from a nude beach and a wildlife refuge where the manatees are hanging out. I went there four times and never saw less than 20 manatees and at least a couple porpoise. One day I had four manatees feeding less than three feet from where I was standing.
I think I’ll be spending a lot more time in FL this winter. Bummed I had to come back to GA as I was going to watch the rocket launch on Sat but I had to get all the plants in the greenhouse.
A short week but still a lot of great music going on. My Don’t Miss shows are Cosmic Charlie, Morning Fatty, The Normaltown Flyers, The Taxicab Verses, The HEAP and Caroline Aiken’s New South Showcase
