Back during a Thanksgiving Weekend in L.A., and with the help

resident Pete Sears (Piano), who you've heard on keyboards and bass with Rod

Although the storm and media has moved on, there are families who have lost everything, or living in shelters, or on the second floors of their devastated homes with no heat or kitchen or even running water. This is an easy way to help, for less than a dollar. AND, you get a copy of the first song I've ever recorded.
Pete and your Crustacean / DJ recorded a version of "River" by Joni
Mitchell. It's been released as a fundraiser for Hurricane Sandy Relief,
and available for 99 cent downloads from iTunes and from Google Play.

During the Fall Music Festival at BR Cohn between 10a-3p This Sunday, we'll celebrate your Crustacean / DJs Four decades on the SF Music & Radio Scene.
