Favoriting July 27, 2007: Very Entertaining (Muy Divertido)
It sure was nice to be back in that Friday morning slot-- which I did for years, between 1985-1995-- playing hot guitar music, among other things. Muy divertido, no? Austin/San Antonio drummer Ernie Durawa (who has worked with Delbert McClinton, Doug Sahm and others) sent me the new Monstas' CD and I built a show around it
