Puzzle 84 – “Theme-Free in 2023”

puz here / pdf here / solution here

Just as the title says, we’re into the new year, and still mostly themeless around these parts. Seed entry here was the spanner at 37-Across: remember those CD double-albums that used to come in the jumbo-sized jewel cases that couldn’t fit neatly into the slots of most racks? But I digress.

Favorite clues here: among the many musical moments in this puzzle, 30-Across, as well as the hat tip to my dad’s favorite musician at 23-Down.

Hope yall enjoy. Comments welcome, as always. Happy solving.

  1. Another very good puzzle, and as usual, you include some interesting historical fact that compels me to look up. Bree Newsome’s story is one I hadn’t heard of before, but I’m glad I now know about it!

  2. 51-A & D reminded me I have to return some videotapes.

    As always, for another great puzzle!
