Due to some technical difficulties, no new music today, sorry.
But since it’s October, it’s as good of an excuse as any excuse to talk about Oktoberfest.


Oktoberfest is held each year in Germany from the end of September through the first weekend in October. Oktoberfest beer is typically darker in color ond a bit stronger in alcohol than your average beer. It is a smooth, drinkable ,sometimes spicy beer, that is a perfect way to ring in the fall season.
