Since I wasn’t at Once Upon A Slam, Ruthanne acted as DJ (and host and sac…).

I was told I was missed. Awwwwwwww….

HOWEVER, the Kymeras did a show with Brendan McLeod and I did the DJ thing for that show. It is a little different than a slam. I was only playing songs before, after and on the break. No little song snippets to keep the crowd jazzed like during the slam.

Still, I have a playlist!
