Tonight's cover illustration: My college friend Christina Crowder, who converted me to the accordion in about two seconds in 1990. Yea! This is her (I think) more recently with The Wholesale Klezmer Band. http://www.ganeydn.com/wkb/WholesaleKlezmer.html (I don't think we have any recordings of her with them yet.)
