Just For Fun Concerts EP 2016-01

As this is the first podcast episode of 2016, this episode contains a collection of stuff from last year. However, the selections in this playlist are likely subconsciously affected by the passing of both Lemmy from Motorhead and David Bowie. The news of their deaths makes me feel somewhat old, and as I reflect on the cornucopia of interesting music that has stimulated my mind and of which I have enjoyed from both gentleman over the past 4 decades or so, my mood is somewhat askew as I contemplate my own mortality . Further, the impact of both in my life is not found only in their music. Their primary significance lies in their indomitable spirits. They were exemplars of the true punk ideology: take action, following your own muse, live your life by your own design and with a direction and purpose founded upon your own beliefs. What is the measure of a man? They both lived their answer.

Here is what you’ll find in Episode #5 or 2016-01 if you prefer:
