This week we go back to May, 2014, for an RFC MINI SHOW starring Mark Bates.

Mark Cline Bates hadn’t been on RFC since episode 58 ,in 2009, before we caught up with him again almost five years later and featured his music on RFC 196. From that same recording session at The Empty Glass, this episode of The RFC MINI SHOW brings you two songs from Mark, “Bigger Things” and “Closer.” Mark is still perfroming in the area, and touring nationally at times, and you can check out his website for news of his tour dates and you can also buy his music.

You may notice that this episode of The RFC MINI SHOW is number twenty-one, while our previous show was number nineteen. It was around this time that we discovered that we numbered two of our RFC MINI SHOWs as “seven.” We didn’t catch it, and nobody pointed it out to us, so we didn’t discover it until we were working on the RFC Archives. Rather than go back and re-number the previous thirteen shows, we’re just going to skip a number to get back on track. After we rendered this show as number twenty-one, we discovered that we also had two shows numbered “fifteen.” So expect next week’s flashback to The RFC MINI SHOW to be number twenty-three.

Making matters even more confusing, I had totally forgotten most of this, so when I ran flashbacks to both of the RFC MINI SHOWs that were numbered “fifteen,” a few weeks ago, I didn’t even notice.
