Ukulele Lately Ep. 17: Reason for the Absence…a New Normal

Greetings from the Midwest!

This week’s episode was a difficult one to just be able to sit down and do. You might recall (Ukulele Lately: Introductory Podcast), that I mentioned moving back to America from Korea because of some health problems that my father had had. Just over two years ago, he was in great need of a liver transplant. Well, as we celebrated his two-year liver transplant anniversary, my father ended up being diagnosed with multiforme glioblastoma (stage IV). He passed away on November 26, 2014. So these past seven months have been filled with hospital/home visits, school teaching, and the traveling back and forth. I’m sure my family would agree with me when I say, we’d appreciate your prayers as we go through the rest of this holiday season…and as we adjust to our new normal.

Thank you for being patient through the absence…I hadn’t even checked emails or anything with this site in the span of those seven months! So sorry for the delay. Hopefully the saying “absence makes the heart grow fonder” is true, eh?

Ukulele Lately Ep. 15: Artist Highlight (Trench, 3T2H, DATS, Ukulele Teacher) & Audio Software

This week’s episode seeks to make up for the long delay since last post by doing four artist highlights: Trench, 3T2H, Danielle Ate the Sandwich, and the Ukulele Teacher; along with part two of audio software.

Shout-outs were given to Malc (for part two of his audio recording software question) and Walter (who will hopefully be available as a “field reporter” for the Reno Uke Festival happening 4/24 – 4/27).
