I've recently been on a bit of a kick with themes for some reason. I'm not sure why. This week I decided to celebrate the coming of summer with a bunch of great songs. I didn't realize it until the show was nearly finished, but 7 of the artists included tonight have been guests of mine at some point over the years. Thanks to all of them for inspiring me along the way...
