Test: Jojo Thompson in Cybersapce

Alright folks,

I'm going to start putting songs up here, and I think I figured out how.

I'm hoping to generate some conversations about the music that I'm listening to, mostly related to my project on Northwest Arkansas. So let me know what you think.

Here's a test: It's Jojo Thompson, playing at his own birthday party at the American Legion Hall in Fayetteville, Arkansas, sometime in the late 1980s or very early 1990s. The recording is from Orlis, Thanks!



Update: by the way, most of what's going up here is going to be stored at
the internet archive, that's where the player is from, and where I can I'll put links up like this one.

Update #2: That's Jojo playing piano and having a drink served to him by Don Tyson at the Library Club in the picture at the bottom of this page, by the way.

Woo Hoo! It works!

I forgot to mention that the player is form the Internet Archive and that I'm going to also be uploading archival material there. Here's the link to this song's page:

..ok, I'll go put it on the main page.

oh wow, I loved Jojo and this is a great bit of history. I don't believe I was around for this show--probably already in SF, but it reminds me of all the good times listening to him.
