Episode 187 - Are You Yeti For The Holidays?

Episode 186 - Weird and Lazy Mood

It might have been the time off. Days spent in quiet isolation seem to have given this playlist a weird and lazy quality. Only goes to show just how much you're influenced by the world around you.

Episode 185 - Doing It For The Bacon!

What would make a man fly a third of the way across the country? Bacon! That's right, I planned an entire trip around bacon. And I convinced people to join me. None of this has anything to do with music.

Episode 184 - Why Would You Do That?

They say you never get a second chance to make a first impression. True, but I prefer to go with a lasting impression. They normally aren't good ones but they are a lot more interesting. We're also joined by Jeff, Eric and Lauren from UME.

Episode 179 - Zenyatta Bovinatta

Episode 178 - Bovine4Life

I'm about as hard core as bologna on white bread but that doesn't mean I can't drop the phatest beats and illest ryhmes. What? It doesn't work when I say it? Martin Rivas talks about his new record "Sea of Clouds" and gives us some street cred.

Music by Yes, Pink Martini, Mike Errico, The Atomic Square, eliotE & The Ritournelles, Baby Animals, Martin Rivas, Tears For Fears, Gabrielle, Mindy Smith, Casey Shea, Concert Silence and Digital Underground.

Episode 177 - Lazy Days of Summer

Lazy? There's no time for that. There's mini-golf to be played, roller coasters to ride and egg creams to make. It's really amazing I even got around to doing this show but sadly we don't get a summer vacation around here.

Episode 176 - The King of Pod

The world lost a music icon this week but you still have me. I'm not saying it's an even exchange but sometime you have to take what you can get. We'll pay tribute, answer some questions and play some new stuff. It's the best I can do.

Music by Fanfarlo, Adam Balbo, Neil Peart Terry Bozzio & Joey Heredia, The Black Noodle Project, Claude Lamothe, Dunndotta, Tall Tall Trees, Karma Generator, Ernie Southern & the Deltaholics, Lizzy Grant, Holler Wild Rose!, LAF, CSS, Jerry Reed, Weird Ways and Michael Jackson.

Music by Godspeed You Black Emperor, the Faster Gore Core Girls, Neil Nathan, UME, Fastball, Brent Shuttleworth, Kate Havnevik, Allie Moss, Alec Gross, Sonseed, Peter Kater & Dominic Miller, Scott Stein and Young MC.

Episode 174 - I Got Nothing

Blame it on the lack of sleep, Great Adventure season pass or the new kitchen cabinets but I got nothing. No witty show titles. No interesting pictures. All I got is a glass of rum, 16 tracks and time to talk about them.

Episode 173 - Corporate Zombie

You may know me as the rum drinking purveyor of this fine show but really I'm nothing more than a corporate zombie. It pays better than podcasting but at what cost? The rum makes sense now doesn't it?

Episode 171 - Rip-offs, Remakes, Levees and Strange Fruit

What do the Copyright Act of 1909, in studio performances by Martin Rivas & Craig Meyer and analytical musical studies have in common? If you guessed a new episode of Nefarious Bovine Radio you'd be correct. I could go into detail but it would take longer than the show already is.

Music by Eric Cartman, Then There Were Two, The Strangeloves, Memphis Minnie & Kansas Joe, Led Zeppelin, A Perfect Circle, Blindfold, Martin & Craig, Abdel Halim Hafez, Billie Holiday, Siouxsie and The Banshees, eliotE & The Ritournelles, Casey Shea, Rock City Mourge, Wakey!Wakey!, Richard Cheese & Lounge Against the Machine and The Buggles.

Episode 170 - Girls Rock!

Girls can't rock? I know a few people that might disagree with that notion. Emily & Lauren from Girls Rock Camp Austin would be at the top of that list. If you need any further convincing we're playing some of my favorite female artists this time around.

iPods, home recording equipment, FaceBook chatting and the internet. These are just a few of the things we're excited about this time around. Fresh off the high of a brand new iPod Sean feels compelled to discuss the joys of technology in what is the longest episode to date. Aren't you the lucky ones?

Episode 167 - Mad Hatter

Sean is single handedly trying to fix the economy by buying hats. It may not work but he'll look stylish trying. As part of the Nefarious Bovine Stimulus Package we're also giving the music away for free.

Music by Paco De Lucia John McLaughlin & Al Di Meola, Colin Hay, Celia Chavez, The Balustrade Ensemble, De La Soul, Matt Singer, Charlie Rich, Dùnndotta, Ella Fitzgerald & Joe Pass, Chris Cubeta, Mar, Paula Valstein, Yes, Rachel's, Adrian Belew and Dig.

Episode 166 - Balancing Act

Artist and Label a precarious balancing act? Not if it's done correctly. Melissa Giges and Blake Morgan from Engine Company Records stop by to tell us how it's done and to talk about Melissa's new disc Evident.

Episode 165 - Dunn With 2008

Is 2009 the year of Bryan Dunn. So far all the signs point to yes. Don't believe me? Well how about we let Bryan tell you himself as he sits down with us to talk about why an artist does what they do and his new CD Vicious Waltz. We also have Casey Shea calling in to premier a new track and talk about his new three sided single project.

Music by Goddamn Electric Bill, Marlene Dietrich, DeSol, The Bluebells Of Scotland, Dead Kennedys, HitchcockGoHome!, Bryan Dunn, Brian Eno, Little Hat Jones, Rich Girls, Daryl Hall, Gaijin A Go Go and Casey Shea.
