December 14, 2018 – No Show This Week… Again

Hi folks,

The best way to describe this week would be to borrow a line from Leonard Snart/Captain Cold on an episode of The Flash when he said, “Make the plan.  Execute the plan.  Expect the plan to go off the rails.  Throw away the plan.”

You see, the sore throat that sidelined Mike for the last two weeks had at last subsided, and he could finally talk for long periods without discomfort.  Mike and Dennis lined up their respective schedules and managed to pick a date and time for when they could get together and record a show.  The news items were all selected and everything was pointing in a positive direction.  Unfortunately, however, what couldn’t be planned for was Dennis getting sick, which is exactly what happened this week.

For some reason, the fates decided to bless Dennis with one of those bad cold/borderline cases of flu that come and kick your butt for a few days.  Thankfully, the worst of it has now passed for him and he’s on the road to getting well, but was still in no condition to record a show.

We apologize for the lack new shows over the last several weeks.

December 7, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, we still do not have a new show for you.  The culprit this week was the devastating one-two punch of scheduling conflicts and less than 100% health.  Last week, Mike was suffering from a sore throat, which was the main factor in not doing a show.  Alas, with a week’s time, Mike’s poor pharynx proves positively problematic and is still not yet up to enough snuff to survive the rigors of recording.  Ideally, if his current pace of recovery continues without issue, then he *should* (fingers crossed) be well enough for a show next week.  If anything changes on that front, watch this space.

November 30, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, there will not be a new show for you this week as both Mike and Dennis have been under the weather for the past few days.  Mike, in specific, has been struck with a sore throat which makes it unpleasant to talk, and also makes him sound like he’s going through puberty for a second time.  Hopefully, with this week off, both will be back up and close to 100% to deliver a new show for you next week.

November 2, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hey friends,

Alas… much like two weeks ago, the plan *was* to record a new show for you.  And much like two weeks ago, it was all assembled, and ready to be recorded.  However, *unlike* two weeks ago when Mike was traveling and didn’t get his suitcase until much later, he actually received his suitcase right when he landed this time.  The problem came when connecting all his gear to set-up for a remote recording session.  Apparently, some thing or some setting must have changed in the many months since the last remote recording session because when going back to it this time, the recording hardware and software refused to play nice with one another.  Despite all best efforts being made, it became clear that there was a bigger technical issue at hand that could not be solved in just one night.  Thus, no recording could take place.

Fear not, citizens, for next week will be a better week when both Mike and Dennis will be in the same physical location at the same physical time, reducing the number of things that could go wrong.  Until then, we apologize for not being with you this week.

October 19, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hey friends,

So… the plan *was* to record a new show for you this week.  It was all assembled, fine-tuned, sent to the necessary parties, and just waiting to be recorded.  BUT, a funny thing happened on the way to recording that show.  You see, Mike was traveling for work on the recording day, and brought the equipment with him to record a show remotely.  And, while Mike managed to get to his destination, his suitcase ultimately did not.  In that suitcase?  Yep, his recording equipment.  Needless to say, it’s a little difficult to record a show when you have nothing to record it with.

Unfortunately, our best-laid plans were blown to smithereens this week.  But, do not fret, for we will be back with a brand-new show for you next week.  Best of all, next week’s show will be our annual Halloween Music Special!  We hope you’ll join us for what is one of the most fun shows we do each year.

August 31, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hey friends,

Just wanted to give you all a friendly reminder that we’re off this week so that Dennis and I can enjoy the last throes of summer during the Labor Day long weekend.  Don’t worry, we’ll be back with a brand-new show for your listening pleasure next week on Friday, September 7th.

July 6, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hey friends,

Sooooo, remember last week when we were off for the Canada Day long weekend and said that we’d be back with a new show for you this week?  Yeah, well… that’s not happening.  As it turns out, our old nemesis “Life” has reared its ugly head once again and is preventing us from getting together this week to record a new episode.  Unlike previous instances of “Life” getting in the way, illness and work are not to blame this week.  Instead, the culprit is home ownership.  As you may remember, Dennis is a homeowner now and, as such, finds himself needing them time to do some work on his abode.  Or he’s got guys coming over to do the work.  Or he’s getting an estimate on some work to be done?  Basically, it’s something to with Dennis and work needing to be done on his house.

In any event, hopefully, this week will allow him time to get done that which needs to get done, and we can be back with a new show for you next week.

April 6, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hi folks,

The unfortunate, as it has a number of times already this year, has reared its ugly head once again and there won’t be a new show for you to enjoy this week.  The culprit this time was work, or more specifically, the abundance which caused both Mike and Dennis to be up to their respective wazoos in it and not have any time left to record a show.  Things will hopefully calm down next week and allow Mike and Dennis to bathe you in their velvety, dulcet tones once again.

In the meantime, we encourage you to get your fill of our dulcet tones by checking out the many past episodes available for download here on our site, and on both our iTunes and Google Play pages.

March 2, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hi, folks.  I have the unpleasant task of informing you that there will not be a new show for this week.  Trust us, we are aware of the hiccups in releasing shows for you this year, and just when it appeared that we had some momentum in releasing shows with a new-found sense of regularity, we encounter another stumbling block.  The issue this week is not one of either life or illness as was the case with past weeks.  Instead, what we encountered were technical problems.  Specifically, our main computer used for recording, (along with many other important things), was seriously wanting to die.  The troubleshooting process is still ongoing, but we’re hoping to have this thing licked and be back again with you next week.
