AJoMT Larry’s Best New Music of 2018

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who have checked out my Wednesday posts over the last six years (and anything else I may have posted on the site)!  I have reached the conclusion that I need a break and a career change will be consuming my time going forward. You may see me appear on occasion, still. I truly want to thank Alan Cross for both the opportunity and the encouragement as I came from some guy who bugged the shit out of him regularly to someone who became a regular.  I will never forget that generosity. All the best to everyone for an awesome 2019!
