A Direction Home :: 7:00am 3rd Feb 2024

I put together a playlist for this week’s show. Then I scrapped it and put together a different one. I had this bright idea for a theme around “Off the Blocks”, as in ‘off the blocks and racing’ into the year. But when I looked at the songs I’d chosen there wasn’t exactly a galloping energy about it – something much gentler, quieter. Forward motion, but with stumbling blocks, attempts, small steps, moments of reflection, moving through change… that sort of vibe. So I’ve changed direction and now it’s more about Starting. Out, over, again.
I hope these artists and their wonderful tales will help coax us all out and give us some juice for the next part of the trip that is this old life…..
