Tag: Empty Glass
Mike Wagner, a patron of the pod, picks the topic. We discuss Pete Townshend’s output in the early ’80s: two solo albums (“Empty Glass” and “All the Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes”) and two albums with The Who (“Face Dances” and “It’s Hard.”)
Listeners respond to our week of episodes about The Who. Mark Daniel talks about his lifelong fandom. Michael Favicchio tells us about a Who tribute song by indie band Wussy. And Dave from Kenosha calls in with his top 10 Pete Townshend solo songs (we didn’t even have to ask).
Bradford Maylor joins the podcast to discuss an intricate theory he has about Bob Dylan’s “Ballad of a Thin Man.” Then Patrick discusses theories he has about R.E.M.’s “Kohoutek” and Pete Townshend’s “Rough Boys.”
