Unite our nation by changing how we vote

Pundits are nearly unanimous in saying that the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the USA proves we are a “divided nation”. The campaigns demonstrated how candidates fanned extremist flames on all sides, making us believe the “other guys” will be absolutely terrible. That same extremism is reflected in the inability of the US Congress to function effectively, which in-turn fueled extremism among change-seeking voters.

But under it all, we are the same citizens who more-or-less got along until someone told us the other guys were evil.

Recorded live at Dogglounge.com on 2017 Feb 19.

In the spirit of trying to find a name for the set (and cover art), I looked merely to the weather. It had snowed several days before this, and yet this day was unexpectedly very sunny.

Recorded live at http://dogglounge.com on 29 January 2017.

This date was on a weekend when the USA was deeply fractured over President Trump’s executive order on immigrants entering the USA. It fractured our country. I tried to bring themes of love & open arms into the mix (though with only “ok” result).

Recorded live at Dogglounge.com on New Year's Day, 01 January 2017. The year has come full-circle, eh? ;-)

I hadn't planned on spinning a set on NY Day; it's a holiday, right? But around 15:45, I realized I had nothing to do. So I decided to spin. I had to set up all my DJ equipment, though, as I'd taken it down for parties over the holiday. So I actually had a bit of a mistake during the 2nd track. (I remastered it to correct this error.)

Interestingly, the tunes from the set turn out to either be 3-5 years old, or less than 6 months old.
