Only a few new finds this week, but we've got more requests and upcoming shows, and we travel to Germany for a look at this year's Static Roots Festival, journey down to Oklahoma, and visit some classic albums of covers.
We’re back for the first show of 2019, and already we’ve got some great new music and some exciting shows to look forward to, including the return of Terra Lightfoot and her amazing band! Terra joins us on the phone for a conversation today to tell us all about what we can expect.
Over the holidays, most sensible UMFM hosts stay home or pre-record their shows, but I've never been accused of being sensible so I not only come in to do my show but usually stretch it out a little longer as well. In the past, I've done 5 or 6 hours, but this year I noticed something unusual: a day where nobody had signed up to come in or pre-record. That got the wheels turning and a ridiculous plan was in motion. What if I came in and did an ENTIRE day? We're allowed to broadcast live from 11 am to 11 pm, so I asked if there was a chance that I could take it on, and they went for it. Enter: The Epic Mudge Marathon, where I got to play all kinds of stuff that I don't normally play, including some forgotten gems and a whole pile of weird stuff that I couldn't get away with otherwise.
