I’m so excited to launch a new weekly show on SiriusXM Channel #359, North Americana. I’ll be your host for Sunday Service. We will gather every Sunday in the name of Americana Music, to both worship our founders, and preach about new artists that you need to know.

That show ended at 10 am, I packed up my equipment and left. Twenty-six hours later I was in Buffalo, New York sitting down to watch the Flyers play the Sabres in a 1 o’clock Saturday matinee.
Between those two moments or events, I briefly slept Friday night in Winnipeg, Manitoba after watching the St. Louis Blues defeat the Jets one-nothing.
Seems like compressed madness, which it is; but it was also a very memorable visit to the ‘Peg. I had a pleasant chat with Jets GM Kevin Chevaldayoff, who I had seen briefly at Madison Square Garden the previous Sunday, I took a selfie with Darren Pang, who I had run into twice before, including
