Local musician, master brewer, and all-around dandy dude Don Vasa is making peace with the fact that he has to give up his two remaining vintage Hammond Organs. The organs are electric and one lives on his front porch. So of course contributor gianofer fields asked Vasa to plug it in for one last tune in the middle of a downpour.
In this episode of Radio Chipstone, gianofer fields and her friend Don Vasa want you to remember two things: letting go IS a thing, and the end of something once cherished can be joyful.
