Happy (belated) Mother’s Day to your Mom, my Mom, Mom’s everywhere! In my re-voiced for

Cygnus show (of last Saturday’s 10PM broadcast on WHQR -which streams btw) I played a

bunch of Mom themed tunes. BUT then learned of David Sanborn’s passing. So replaced my final tune with one featuring David as a modest send off tribute. It’s in the archive if you’d like to hear it.
