Queen Of The Scene! Show tracks for Sat. July 20/13

"The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry." So the plan last night was to go see OMD at St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit. To accomplish that Clara from The Washing Machine here on CJAM graciously agreed to guest host the show. The stars were aligning, or so I thought. The bastard weather here didn't just make my week a living hell but also ruined my weekend plans. Malcolm, the drummer, in OMD succumbed to heat exhaustion in Toronto the night before resulting in a hospital stay. Which then resulted in the cancellation of the rest of the tour. Obviously, we all hope Malcolm makes a speedy and total recovery. The news on OMD's website is saying just that. But disappointment doesn't begin to describe the feelings as you watch months of waiting for the show go up in smoke. There was no point in trying to get to the show, unprepared, and ruining all the hard work Clara had done all week to prep for it. Clara, the queen of the scene, had a blast hosting and I hope you enjoyed listening. Big thanks to Clara & Chris for a great show!
