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.

This is another in our collection of timeless Standby episodes, which you may hear again sometime when I’m not able to put together a new episode for whatever reason. I’m pretty sure you won’t mind.
Have you ever noticed how many songs there are about or by Charlies? No, seriously, it's an epidemic or something! You wouldn't think that Charlie would pop up so often in songs, but we've got two hours of Charlies for you, and there are a whole bunch that I had to leave off! Good Times, Charlie!
So, Charlie, whoever you are, this one's for you!

We've got loads and loads of great new music this week and some more of our favourite 2020 songs & releases so far.

This is the weekend when we'd normally be off in Germany enjoying our beloved Static Roots Festival, but alas, COVID has ruined everything. Luckily, we've got some new music from festival friends & past performers to enjoy. We've also got another batch of great new releases to tell you about, and there have been so many this year that I thought we'd take some time halfway through the year to play some songs from some of my favourite 2020 releases thus far.

After last week's all-Canadian special, we're back mixing it up with some great new music, including this month's Bandcamp haul, some great requests, and a few timely tunes in honour of the turn of the calendar.
