Summertime at Merry & Bright!

Hello and Happy Summer to all of you dear readers!  I wanted to share a quick update from Der Bingle's place.

No Christmas in July this year.  Since I only boarded that train once, and didn't really get any momentum going, I'm not contributing this year.  There are plenty of others, though, as I'm sure most of you know.  Ernie at Ernie (Not Bert) is doing his amazing Christmas in July sharing again this year, giving us scads of Christmas/holiday songs from non-holiday albums.  Over 500 to be shared this year, per Mr. Not Bert.  And you'd better hurry over to Stubby's place for a mammoth (Not Necessarily) The Best of Stubby's collection - 4 CDs worth, plus a bonus CD of songs that almost made the cut.  Go get 'em!

Over here, I'm going to go down a non-Christmas path for a few summer posts.  If all goes as planned, you'll be able to read about Wargirl and their self-titled album, released in May and is (in my opinion) the best album of 2019 (and top 5 of the 20-Teens).  You'll learn about my friend and Kansas City musician Jason Beers, who set out to release 10 (ten!) CDs this year, and is on track to do so.  You'll get to hear about getting to meet the wonderful Sofia Talvik at a springtime show in nearby Olathe, KS.  And hopefully a few other things.  I want to get the writing motor going again, and really want to share my thoughts about these great musicians.  So, (again, if all goes well) there will be a few new posts here in the next few weeks.

Stay tuned, and go visit Ernie and Stubby!

  1. Thanks for the plug, Mr. Bingle! As of last night, there are 720 songs in the can. The record, I think, is 776 from a couple years ago, and that's what I'm gunning for. Still plenty of records in the pile to record, but I'm trying to avoid all of the side-long Nutcracker Suites if possible. :)
