Tuning into Folk Radio UK (Frukie) is the ideal background music. I like to stay local with most things, but when the climate becomes something resembling Britain if you can't beat 'em, join 'em I say!
Check what's playing now here. Lots of James Vincent McMorrow and other acoustic people.
Speaking of the weather, my thoughts are going out to all the flood effected towns. My grandparents are in Griffith where the town is suffering quite badly. They are safe in their home a little up the very low hill, but it makes me worry about all the senior citizens who might not have very good health. Keep safe!
