Just One

This is a special edition of the podcast, and it features only one delicious chant. Prema Hara introduced their new CD "Tears Of Love" at OMmersion, and it is full of beautiful devotional chants. This week I also talk a bit about advertising at the New World Kirtan website, why it's going to increase soon & the criteria I'm using to choose our advertisers. We'll be back to the usual format next week with a Fresh Tracks set. Until then, dear sweet wonderful listeners ... Namaste.
