For the record, Butch is the McCarthy half of McCarthy and Legge – check out their website for show dates.
Randy McDonald came in for a cameo. I may have shot coffee out my nose when he was doing his bit on opera overtures. His band, Randy and the Oak trees, has some gigs coming up.
The Magazine of Yoga suggested the Jimmy Somerville song.
“Soprano serenades doctors after lung transplant” was the headline of the week.
