flapjax at the Oxford American January 9, 2017 9:00 AM   Subscribe

I was delighted to see mefi's own flapjax at midnite--aka Samm Bennett--make a walk-on appearance in an article about blues music in Japan, in the Winter 2016 edition of The Oxford American.

I still haven't finished savouring this year's music issue of Oxford American, and this is one of the pieces I haven't gotten to yet. Thanks for the heads up.

And congrats, flapjax!

Nice article.

(I've been a fan since I stumbled upon A Man of Very Few Words.)

He may be A Man of Very Few Words but he's a man of very many music posts.

And very much on the level.

So to speak...

I'm saving it for this Sunday morning's read. Every Christmas, mrgood gets me a copy, and I get one for him. We love each other that much, but not enough to share. How nice to have even more to look forward to in there!

I read that writer's book about rare record collectors a few years ago and it was definitely one of the best books I read that year.
