Notes: In two hours Jeff walked listeners through folkie mind-trips, intricate instrumentals and long lost recordings. If you know Jeff like I do you're hip that each trak intertwines musical concepts with cryptic messages. Jeff may harp that the music is the tune, but when the lyrics are revealed you can hear what Jeff is thinking.

Jeff has influenced the local music and art scene ever since I met him circa 1982, and probably before that. In this part of the woods he's a mind-reader of the cultural zone. He doesn't do it to be phat. He ekes out the future so he won't be left behind talking to the old urbanized wornouts. The variety of his friends span a grand canyon of personalities... ranchers, professors, craftsmen, musicians, all sort of freelancers and even a few federallis.

You may only know him as he is on the radio... ranting over the wikipediazation of the masses, or that Moving Picture Experts Group-1 Audio Layer 3 nomenclature is not acceptable for daily consumption. He may go off on how parking meters are the Republic's Digital Devil and in the next breathe describe a productive evening of watching sine waves while sipping a fine mescal as a fire crackles and pops in the background. It all depends on his mood and the snow depth and the CFS of a river...

Coming back to my point... if Jeff is at a venue you can know there's something worthwhile going on. That grizzled old miner is at work prying out the truth and archiving it for posterity. This is Jeff's calling. And for darn sakes, don't insinuate he should change his ways or trim his beard or SETTLE DOWN. It's simply is not your option.

Relax, listen and learn. If your spirit gets energized follow through by going to a show or digging for more facts or just contact Jeff. See ya next week!
