BAD Now on Thursdays at 11PM ET

Time changes sometimes slip the minds of those who have changed, so I'm the one who needs reminding.

Listeners to Emily Edelman's fabulous "Under the Floorboards" on Thursdays get my little musical sandbox right afterwards.

"Bohemia After Dark" is now Thursdays at 11 pm ET on WHDD/WBSL and online at

On the cusp of finally getting 'round to the magic number of 50 programs, I have to apologize for these excessive gaps in producing new content. If you have concerns, please don't hesitate to send a message on over.

Two ways to contact the show: email is; or follow me on Twitter at New shows will also be available on demand as usual at

I think that's it for now. Thanks as always for your patience and time.
