Episode 163 - Who Doesn't Like (a) Hammock?

As we're upon the first day of winter my thoughts drift to warm weather lounging in a hammock. That doesn't seem likely to happen so instead I sit down with my other favorite Hammock to discuss their latest disc Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow.

Episode 161 - Thank God That's Over

Episode 159 - Less Talk, More Talk Talk

Episode 153 - Struggling Minstrels

I'm often asked why I do this particular program. While there are many reasons the main one has always been to promote the artists that struggle creatively, financially, logistically and mentally all for my listening pleasure.

Cover the kids ears - this is going to be ugly. We seem to have some issues in dire need of exorcising this time around. Great Music and Inane Rants.

Episode 145 - Define Mainstream

It seems that as I get older I'm confusing what I know and like with what is mainstream. Not that I think it's top 40 but I'm suprised when no one knows who the hell I'm talking about.
