    A special nod of appreciation to Kevin Donleavy of Atlantic Weekly fame for braving the snows to keep Vagabond Shoes (as well as World Turning) on the air while the rest of us watched the white stuff accumulate even further while we wondered when we would ever get out of our driveways. (In my particular case, it wasn’t until Wednesday.) Kevin was one of a number of nearby volunteers who were able to get to the station to ensure programming continued uninterrupted, no mean feat considering that even living close by was a considerable trek under the once in a decade or so storm conditions.

    Alas, Kevin’s ability to don snowshoes is not equalled by his computer savvy and there is no publishable playlist. Perhaps this is all for the best, considering the equally ephemeral nature of the environment under which it was performed.
