2020 strikes again and takes another music icon/legend. This weekend, Jerry Jeff Walker lost his battle with throat cancer, and we've lost one of the greats of songwriting and performing. Today on the show, a heartfelt tribute featuring words and music from Todd Snider, Jerry Jeff's biggest fan and close friend, and a whole lot of music from the man himself. After that, we've got a pile of new and timely music to round things out.
Fresh off a trip to the dentist, I thought it was time to pay some tribute to proper dental care, but we've also got a pile of great new (and new-to-me) music and a few feel-good Canadian classics.
It's Thanksgiving weekend and as always, we're thankful for great music to get us through, and there's a whole bunch of great stuff here today. We've got another pile of great new music, including the haul from the last Bandcamp day, some great requests, we celebrate some significant local birthdays, and we explore the life and incredible talent of Eddie Van Halen by picking out some of the folkier sounds from his amazing work.
Lots of new music today, including a very busy artist who appeared on three releases this week, some great Can-con, special requests, and some October music to head us into the month in style!
