1. St. Louis is my home town so Hope and I went down a day early and spent the night with my mom and dad--score!
3. My friend Heather Miller hosts a radio show called Lyrical Venus on KRUU community radio in Fairfield, IA. She invited The Mrs. Dunbars to play a 10 minute showcase. We were the second act of the weekend. It was very fun and a new experience to have so many people hear us play before meeting us.
6. I got to meet Anna Vogelzang who is a RealWomenRealSongs participant. I've chitchatted online with Anna all year and then there she was in the flesh. She, Hope, and I decided to cowrite our week 43 song. We sat and worked at the FARM registration desk and later out on the patio. We filmed it in the lobby. Here it is.
