  1. Thank you for the memorial to my dear sweet Zowie. He is very much missed.

    Just a reminder, you mentioned that you would throw in a link to further info about the album jackknife. I'm curious now....

    Great show!

  2. The link is on the album title. I just changed it though, from the Wikipedia page to something a bit more informative.
