Last night I witnessed a really fun and memorable evening of songs about love. It was full of many great original songs, but also a whole bunch of terrific covers. Today we go through the highlight reel and hear a bunch of the original versions of songs that were performed there. Also, we've got some requests, great new music, and an exciting upcoming show to preview!
This is the one where we play some new music, get a little bit political, and then try really hard to feel better about the mess that our world has become, and somehow, come out feeling a whole lot better!
This weekend yet another amazing musician took up residence in the rock 'n' roll graveyard when the amazing Sharon Jones lost her long battle with cancer. Hey, 2016, ENOUGH ALREADY! Luckily, we've got some great new music, a couple of requests, and some exciting upcoming shows to preview. And to promote one of the most interesting shows, one of the couples involved with next weekend's "An Evening with the Bickersons," newlyweds Jessee Havey and Nathaniel Good, now known as Nation of Two, stopped by to chat about it, their recent wedding, and to perform live on-air for the very first time anywhere!
Any self-respecting singer/songwriter show had better take note of the passing of one of the true giants of songwriting, so much of today's show is devoted to the passing of Leonard Cohen and his lasting legacy. But he's not the only one, as we had to pay our respects to the late Leon Russell, as well. But, dwelling on deaths isn't all we do here, so we threw a 70th birthday party for Ray Wylie Hubbard, talked about a wortwhile fundraiser going on soon, and played some great new music!
