On the show today we've got some more great new music, even if we haven't actually heard some of it yet, some overdue requests, and we check in with some artists that I used to really love but for one reason or another haven't connected with as much over the years.
A few real gems among the new releases but otherwise one of the quietest weeks in recent memory, so we spent a lot of time listening to old favourites including some of the seemingly few great double albums.
A great new album from Figure Walking has us rocking our socks off, we've got a bunch of other great new music, a few exciting upcoming events to go to and we discuss guitar songs for absolute beginners. Good stuff galore!
Another great one gone as we pay a fond farewell to the great Justin Townes Earle, who left us far too soon. We've got plenty of examples of him covering other artists, other artists covering him, and a few fun surprises to remember him by. On a happier note, on Friday, September 4, our buddy Sean Burns releases a collection of some of his favourite truckin' songs called "We Gotta Lotta Truckin' to Do," so we hop in the cab and crank a few of our faves to get us ready.
Remember to keep in touch with the people you care about during these days of isolation. You never know what someone's going through unless you reach out. The only way to get through this madness is with a little help. I'm here for you any time.
