So far, this is our first anticipated episode that was not be recorded live. As timing would have it, Martin was to be in Sacramento celebrating his grandmother's 90th birthday at the very time of the show. So, he recorded it earlier before driving up there. This week's show was meant to show the pieces that seem to be missing in the career of Santana. We all know how their original Latin rock fusion affected the 1970s and their imaginative collaborations of the late 1990s and 2000s that have met with unprecedented success. But what about that gap in the middle? Here we featured their singles ("You Know That I Love You," "Winning" and "Hold On") that best represent the band as they were finding their way during the decade.
We discovered that as amazing as it is to do our show live, it has become a crutch. You see, the timing and interaction of the live show is critical to the flow of it. We tried to record it cold in the studio. We did that for a few episodes when we first started. It just didn't feel the same. We can assuredly say that we will do everything we can possible to do very few episodes off-schedule and if necessary, we will just change the recording time/date. The show is every bit about you as it is the news and the music played. We love to hear from you. Send us your questions, thoughts or heck... maybe we'll even read a short concert review from you if it comes in. But we discovered your part during this episode. Thank you.
