I am on vacation this week.  I hope it rains.  Seriously.  The average daily temperature in Las Vegas this time of year is between 105 and 110 degrees fahrenheit.  The sun is absolutely brutal, and going outside too long in the summertime can kill you.  It rains here, literally, a handfull (5 or less) times a year.  To be honest, I’ve had it up to here with hot and sunny.  We are renting a beach house in the Pacific northwest, and the projected weather is cloudy, rainy and foggy, with temperatures of 65-70 degrees. 

Most people would think that would make for a wretched holiday.  Not us.  Long pants, sweaters, books, shopping, lots of fresh seafood and local produce.  Oh yeah!  Don’t forget the local wineries and breweries!

I’ll be back next week with a whole new batch of interviews from independent artists, fro Las Vegas, and from around the world.  

Here are some of the tunes I’m listening to on my mp3 player as I travel:

Remember, if you like the music you hear, support those artists by buying their music!

 …And don’t forget to tell them Paulie sent you!
