The other day, I was looking at the big list of MRR episodes, and I was puzzled. Where’s Episode 28? There’s a 27 and a 29, but what happened in-between? Even when I skip a Sunday, I don’t skip a number.
Then I remembered.
Back in May, when we lost Gregg Allman, I put together a whole playlist of nothing but Gregg and The Allman Brothers Band, then some choice covers of Gregg’s best. But I was out of town that weekend, watching a nephew graduate from college, so the Sunday came and went. The playlist went unheard.
This is that missing Episode 28. I called it “The Sunshine Felt Like Rain.” God speed, Gregg.
