Today, guest host Mike Wagner of Houston talks about the art of the backing vocal.
Another call to the Suburban Party Line. Kevin Clement calls to recommend two cover songs: Aretha Franklin’s take on a classic by The Band and Bettye LaVette’s interpretation of a great song by The Who.
Aretha Franklin died on Aug. 16 at 76 years old. She was the Queen of Soul for a reason. But her impact went far beyond her singing ability. Jim & Patrick pay tribute, joined by Intern Sam Lisker.
One more guest episode! Mike Wagner of Houston fills in today and talks about songs with great “middle eights.” What’s a middle eight, you ask? Mike will explain. Features music by the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin and the Replacements.
