Hi Friends! Unfortunately, I have been out sick for much of the week and I will give you 19 guesses as to why. I have little choice but to run a repeat tonight, but if you're gonna do it, make sure it's a good one, right?

Happy Birthday Philip Glass! Tune in to hear his 11th Symphony about 20 minutes into the second hour. I also have music from Hildur Gudnadottir, Arooj Aftab, Brad Mehldau and more! Ryan Lott, founder and frontman for Son Lux also had a birthday last week. We kick the show off with a couple of tunes from the band as well as Lott himself talking a bit about how Son Lux got its start.
