Jim watched all 16 hours of Ken Burns’ ‘Country Music’ documentary series on PBS. He and Patrick discuss this impressive work with listener Nick Scalera, who also happens to work at PBS’ Washington DC affiliate WETA.
We interviewed roots rocker Jesse Dayton backstage at City Winery in Washington DC. In this part of the interview, we talk about Jesse’s latest album of covers, “Mixtape Volume 1,” and his past work with Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash.
Patrick recently went to the Bourbon and Beyond Festival. Here are his dispatches from the drive from Falls Church VA to Louisville KY.
Patrick traveled to Nashville and met up with Tyler Mahan Coe, host of “Cocaine & Rhinestones,” an amazingly detailed podcast about country music in the 20th century. In the first episode of this three-part series, Tyler talks about growing up in a musical family, playing in his father David Allan Coe’s band and getting in trouble.
Part 2 in our Holiday Spectacular 2017. In this episode, we examine an old spiritual, “Children Go Where I Send Thee,” and its lasting appeal. (Including a version by Mr. Johnny Cash.)
Covers Week on Rockin’ the Suburbs! We talk about some of our favorite songs interpreted by others, starting with re-done versions of Soundgarden and Clash tunes.
Who doesn’t love talking about their record purchases? We discuss music acquired with very special guest Mary Nahorniak (longtime listeners will remember her contributions to the “old show”). Featuring music by the Beatles, Johnny Cash and Jenny Lewis.
Record Store Day is not a national holiday—not yet anyway—but it feels like it to us. Our friend, and young record collector, Adam Woodward joins to talk about what he found digging in the crates.
