So, here's the deal.

I have Monday's show all ready and lined-up.

Also, I will have a FACEBOOK EXCLUSIVE video on my musician page, so if you haven't "liked" me already, do so now! I will post it MONDAY! Also on Monday, I will hopefully be posting an additional podcast for those of you who have been missing the show! Since it will be NOVEMBER by then, hopefully I can get a couple podcasts up!

Meanwhile, it's Devil's Night, so be careful, and PLEASE behave. Too much rowdy behavior on a night like this can get out of hand, and lives (including the lives of our police officers and firefighters) can be lost.

Be careful out driving and trick-or-treating tomorrow night! Lots of love!

AND
HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEEEEN!!
