ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

(guitar strumming)

- This next song is called "Blame It on Love,"

and people love this song.

In the recorded version we've got a great sax solo

and kicks a little bit more than it will,

but this is just the way I wrote it,

so this is kind of cool.

You get to see the raw, unvarnished versions.

And this is about a very dear friend of mine,

Forrest Jenkins, the musician, local musician.

He used to be in Saratoga; he passed away.

It's about him and his struggles.
