September 2023 music w/ John Baboian


Hi friends, Happy Labor Day week.  September is here, and Summer is just about over, even though we’ve been hot and steamy the past couple of days.  School starts at Berklee this week.  Back to work.  Cooler days will be here soon.


In sports, what to make of the Sox?? Are they just mailing it in now?  Hard to say, as they lose a bunch of games in a row, and then win a few games in a row.  Unlikely to make it to the playoffs though.  At least they are ahead of the dreaded Yankees!  Well, the positive is that it makes my parking easier at school.


The Pat’s are about to start the season, but we don’t really know how good, or bad, they will be.

Celtics and Bruins are just around the corner.


Some fun gigs this month.  Hope you can join us for a gig or two.


Thanks, Johnny B!!!!!
