Getting The Hang Of It

I still find it confusing to pre-record the final hour and then go on to present a live show for two hours. The temptation to refer to 'later' in the recording, or refer to 'earlier' during the live part, is something of a head-fuck. But I'm getting there.

{The above pre-openers played in tribute to Everett Lilly, and to Donald 'Duck' Dunn}
