Spring Is Here!

We've got yet another instance of "who knows where the time goes?" Wow, almost two months since an update. What HAVE the boys and girls of Saturday's Radio been up to? 

Well, a big part of it is simply "life gets in the way." Day-job working artists know that and have to be diligent and stay focused on their art. That's not always easy. But then it's okay to take a break now and then. 

That said, we have been focused, when there's been the time, on the remix and remaster of 2005's Roses For Sharon. It's so close to being done we're close to pronouncing it "finished." But it's necessary to sit with it a bit; make sure it's as right as we can make it. So stay tuned...

Our "favorite Nirvana album" poll was an utter failure. One vote, for Unplugged. Does that mean people who like Nirvana don't like Saturday's Radio, or have we just not been getting enough word out about the polls? I suspect it's the latter. Anyways, our new poll asks voters to pick their favorite Beatles movie. It's not easy. They all have their merits (though I'd be surprised to see many Magical Mystery Tour votes.). Please vote!
