Bonus Episode #9: Wow, I can’t believe this is the last episode! Doing this podcast has been such a wonderful experience for me. I’ve had the great privilege of hearing my songs performed by the creamiest of the crop, I’ve received beautiful emails from some very kind and supportive listeners, and I’ve even sold a bunch of songbooks along the way. Doing this podcast has left me very inspired to embark on my new projects!
Meanwhile, I’d like to close out this series with a song I wrote a few years ago for my father‘s 60th birthday, which coincided with Thanksgiving that year. It’s called “Giving Thanks,” exactly what I wanted my last episode to be about. Recorded 6/25/06.
My sincerest thanks to the amazing singers (and cellist!) who donated their time and talent to support me in this endeavor, to the lyricists who okayed the inclusion of their songs on the podcast, and to the listeners who invested their time in me, my guests, and my songs. Thank you all for your incredible generosity.
Incidentally, if you have techno-phobic friends who you think would enjoy these songs, please do explain to them that they don’t need an iPod to listen to the podcasts. (I’ve found that that is the most common response when I tell people I have a podcast.) Give them the url for my podcast page: http://jeffblumenkrantz.com/podcast.html and show them how to click on the song names for their instant listening pleasure.
If you like what I do and want to keep hearing about what I’m up to, the best way to stay in the loop is to sign up for my mailing list. If you have something you want to tell me or ask me, you can always post a message on my message board or email me at [email protected].
Until my next songbook or podcast or concert (or full-length musical!), this is the ever-grateful Jeff B., saying “G’byeeeeee!”
