I used to host an internet radio show in Gainesville--and since I've moved away I've missed doing that very much. Podcasting on your own turns out to be much harder than working with all the great equipment and coworkers at GrowRadio. So, I ask for your patience and hope for your interest in hearing me try to resume something that gives me great joy--compiling songs and stories. Let me know what you think, what works, what could be worked on. It's a demo-heavy setlist from all over the last half-century and as Paul Westerberg says, it "rocks like murder."

Track Listing:

I always get excited each time the songs for a podcast start to come together.  I can't really explain the process but it often involves find a few new songs and a few older, less expected, songs that seem to go together and then go from there.  There is a lot more new music in this podcast in comparison to most of my other episodes.  I guess this happened because there has been a SHIT TON of great new music being released.  Go find some and make a purchase or two.  Everything else you need to know is contained within the episode, so go listen.  And as always, your listening means the world to me.

The rules are that every last podcast of the year (this show was created in December) is always a recap show. Some rules are breakable, others, such as the last podcast of the year, are not. Thusly, this show is some of my favorite songs of the year as they fit into the overall mix. Which is a form of saying, this isn’t a countdown or a list. I pulled a shit fuck of songs and set out making this podcast paying much attention to the overall flow of things. That said, every album that found a song on this podcast is completely awesome and you should be firing up Spotify and Bandcamp and whatever other means you employ to check each of them out.

In closing I’d like to say thank you for sticking with us/me this year. There were many times I thought just closing up shop and walking away from the site was the best thing to do. It’s been a tough year and while I’ve not completely abandoned those thoughts, I am increasingly happy we limped through the dark times.

With that said, enjoy episode 31 of the podcast.

I tried three times to write an introduction for this podcast.  I wanted to write one of those introductions where you never say anything about what follows.  I tried to write about my dog and how he crowds my feet even when he has a rare opportunity to play in a yard off a leash.  I tried to write about how winter and snow has arrived here in Colorado and I tried to go make fifty bucks cleaning out a woman's gutters but the gutters were frozen so I drove home.  But none of these ideas worked.  So here are the songs.

  1. Me setting the scene
  2. Slobberbone- Some New Town, ETYTWRWWT
  3. Steve Earle- Guitar Town, Guitar Town
  4. McDougall- A Few Towns More, A Few Towns More
  5. The Fox Hunt- We Know This Town/Lord, We Get High, Nowhere Bound
  6. Me talking about the appeal of Henry Rollins
  7. Chad Price- Peachy Tuscadero, Smile Sweet Face
  8. Don Chambers- Werewolf Moon, Back In The Woods
  9. Otis Gibbs- Damn Me, Grandpa Walked A Picket Line
  10. William Elliot Whitmore- Not Feeling Any Pain, Field Songs
  11. Me talking about not being social
  12. Drivin’N’Cryin- Fly Me Courageous, Fly Me Courageous
  13. 4H Royalty- Fall Off The Face Of The World With Me, Where UFOs Go To Die
  14. John Fullbright- Satan And St. Paul, From The Ground Up
  15. The Evening Rig- Day Drinkin’, Nothing To Hear Here
  16. Iris Dement- The Night I Learned How Not To Pray, Sing The Delta
  17. Me listing songs played and to be played
  18. Andrew Combs- Why Oh Why, Worried Man
  19. Neko Case- Soulful Shade Of Blue, The Tigers Have Spoken
  20. MinuteMen- My Heart And The Real World, Double Nickels On The Dime
  21. Some Dark Holler- Sweet Red Wine, Hollow Chest
  22. Spirit Family Reunion- I’ll Find A Way, No Seperation

Woot! It was nice to get back to the podcast. Mad props to Charles for keeping it active and awesome the past two months. So awesome, in fact, we’re gonna start alternating months so you’ll hear him again in November. Like I was saying though, I am naturally a night person so I find actual enjoyment in staying up till 3:00 in the morning making these on Friday nights and after 2 months off, I had plenty of music to pick from.

I tried to keep the podcast from being a facsimile of the radio show and I think I did an okay job of it. There are still some similarities but come on. New Snakehealers, American Aquarium and new-slash-old Frank Turner demand they be played and I just found the Allen Thompson Band and local kids The Black Roses are in heavy rotation in my car so it should be no surprise they’re starting to creep into all my musical products.

Scattered amongst all that is a double scoop of awesome ready to make sweet sweet love to your ear drums. Give it a chance. I think you’ll like it.

Here is the tracklisting and as Otis Gibbs says, thanks for giving a damn.

01. Sunday Valley - I Don't Mind (To The Wind And On To Heaven)
02. Frank Turner - The Road (Last Minutes & Lost Evenings)
03. Chuck Ragan - Nomad By Fate (Covering Ground)
04. McDougall - 18 Days Of Rain (Our New Histories)
05. Snakehealers - Easy Young Easy Old (Cure All)
06. Two Cow Garage - No Shame (Three)
07. American Aquarium - Burn.Flicker.Die (Burn.Flicker.Die)
08. Allen Thompson Band - Everybody Knows (Salvation In The Ground)
09. JKutchma & The Five Fifths - Used To Believe (Pastorals)
10. Joe Pug - Not So Sure (Messenger)
11. Tim Barry - '222' (Manchester)
12. The Black Roses - Her Love Stops Atom Bombs (self-titled)
13. The Owsley Brothers - Hot Mess (Cobalt)
14. James Leg & Left Lane Cruiser - Shake It (Painkillers)

If I've been anything this year when it comes to the podcast it's been inconsistent. Luckily, my fellow writers have stepped up to help me out with the podcast. So, here is an hour as curated by Charles Hale. Lemme tell y'all. It sounds like nothing I would have put together but I've listened to it 3 times already. Hope y'all like it as much as I do. ~ Autopsy IV

Hey, bet you didn't see this coming.

The podcast is back, and back about a month after Episode 26.  Autopsy IV graciously accepted my offer to put this thing together and I could not have been more thrilled.  Years and years ago I was a college radio DJ and damn if it wasn't the best job ever.  There wasn't a dollar of pay but I'd loved it.  I've got no voice for radio but I hope you dig the songs I've strung together.

In this episode we've got some older stuff; Steve Earle, Eddie Hinton, & RL Burnside and some brand new and unreleased tracks from American Aquarium and Truckstop Darlin'.  We've got stuff we've written about recently and things we'll be writing about soon.  And we've got a great song from a guy I found two days before putting the podcast together.  He goes by Wolfcryer and if you're a fan of McDougall then I think you're going to dig it.

Play this shit loud.

Track Listing:

01.Commentary 02.The District Attorneys - I Can’t Make The Distance, You’ll Have To Meet Me Halfway - Slowburner 03.The Coloradas - Our Disguises - Self Titled 04.Corey Branan - Jericho - Mutt 05.Wolfcryer - Fell On Down - Self Titled 06.Commentary 07.Eddie Hinton - Letters From Mississippi - Letters From Mississippi 08.RL Burnside - Goin Down South - Ass Pocket Full Of Whiskey 09.Jack White - Sixteen Saltines - Blunderbuss 10.Dinero - Concealed Weapons and Open Containers - Sheep 11.Commentary 12.Spirit Family Reunion - I Am Following The Sound - No Seperation 13.Steve Earle - A Gringo’s Tale - The Revolution Starts Now 14.American Aquarium - Abe Lincoln - Burn.Flicker.Die 15.Drag The River - Amazing G - It’s Crazy 16.Truckstop Darlin’ - Southern Ghosts - Hope And The Heart It Breaks 17.Lucero - Chain Link Fence - Tennessee 18.Commentary 19.Taj Mahal - She Caught The Katy - In Progress & In Motion 20.Lindsay Fuller - Everything I Ever Had - You Anniversary 21.Langhorne Slim & The Law - Past Lives - The Way We Move

Holy shit. Like Poltergeist 2: we’re baaaaaack.

For now.

I cover it in the show, but I apologize for the massive break between shows. For the time being, I can’t say there won’t be another multi-month gap between shows and it’s gonna be that way for the remainder of 2012. It sucks, but sometimes real life takes hold. That said, I did make a show and that’s why you’re here, so let’s talk about that...

I have a show for y’all this time around that hits all the bases. Sometimes it rocks, sometimes it’s mellow. Sometimes it’s brand new, sometimes it’s.....well, it’s always pretty new. Some of the highlights on what is a show stacked with awesome are: McDougall, The Great Unknowns, Alone At 3AM, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, and Sturgill Simpson & The High Top Mountain Boys.

All that’s left is to press play on this motherfucker. So what are you waiting on? As always, if you like what you’re hearing on these podcasts, tell your friends about it. Post about it on your Facebook wall. Tweet about it. These bands are all pretty small so every new ear their music finds counts, and you can directly assist them in that effort by telling people about this podcast and others like it.
