Mike Wagner, a patron of the pod, picks the topic. We talk about albums that followed big hit records, including works by Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, Prince, Beastie Boys and Peter Gabriel.
We discuss songs artists have recorded in tribute to other artists.
Patrick recently went to the Bourbon and Beyond Festival. Here are his dispatches from the drive from Falls Church VA to Louisville KY.
Listeners respond to our episode about perfect albums (thanks to Barret Ries for kicking off the topic). Steven Routledge suggests an album by Suede, while John Off calls in with a list that includes Tom Petty, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Oasis, Hall & Oates, Blue Oyster Cult and New Order.
Patrick has some more book reports: “Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd” by Nick Mason with Phillip Dodd and “Comfortably Numb: The Inside Story of Pink Floyd” by Mark Blake.
An astute listener notes that on a previous episode, we glossed over the fact that our friend Brandi Crawford mentioned that she paid $75 for a poster at a recent Roger Waters concert. And so we call her up to get that story.
Brandi Crawford joins the show to discuss a recent Roger Waters concert she attended. The tour has been in the news lately because of its pointed political commentary.
Hand crank those windows down. We’re talking about classic car audio, from the FM converter to 8-tracks and tape decks.
Day 3 of cover songs chosen by listeners. Today’s episode features Foo Fighters and the Cardigans.
Yesterday, we talked about great drum songs. Today, we talk about songs we love that have no drums at all (what?). Drummer pal Bobby Padavick joins again — and may be scarred by this discussion.
