Talent appears in mysterious ways. I have a friend who operates a hay and feed store in northern California whose husband is in a rock band that I saw at the House of Blues early this year. Things and bands change and before I know it he has been invited to join Jason Vanderford's new project, Junk Parlor, giving me an opening to invite Jason to join us on Music Friday and give us the inside story on his new project. This will be a preview of Junk Parlor's concert in Los Angeles which will I am sure be a festive evening of cajon, gypsy rock and pure fun. Jason and my friend R.T. Goodrich, Junk Parlor's drummer join is at 2:30 pm ET this Friday.
