Speaking of sensational whale songs (and while we're waiting for everyone else to rejoin the world of the wired), Bob Zentz did "Hove to and Drifting," an amazing Zentz-penned tale of a radar conversation he had with a pod of whales while serving on a Coast Guard vessel in the Middle of Nowhere. A truly wonderful song (and the title cut of Bob's latest CD). If you haven't heard it, I highly recommend the whole CD, but that song in particular. Also, for fellow fans of sea poet C. Fox Smith (about whom there have been lengthy discussions on the Mudcat), Bob tells us that he's working on a new CD that will feature 19 (count 'em!) of his settings of C. Fox Smith poems. That will be a rare treat worth waiting for!
