FTB#202 - Wednesday Week 2/22/23
By now it has become apparent that each new episode is likely to contain at least one farewell and while it’s hard to accept, the reason is that we are simply old. Yes, we are old and this is what happens. Burt Bacharach was one of the major composers of our lifetime and he proved human by expiring at the ripe old age of 94, while Richard Belzer only made it to 78 but both enriched my life and so many others. You will find tributes to each within. New music from Marc Broussard, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Dry Cleaning, Ron Sexsmith, Isaac Watters and Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit is covered, as well as a wonderful tribute to Eric Anderson, with selections from Syd Straw, Richard Barone and Eric Bazilian. We are loving the increased activity and welcome any feedback you may have. As always, thanks for listening and supporting FTB.

From The Basement Episode #200
Up until recently there was kind of a fuzzy black hole in my memory that lasted from about episode #26 to #90, give or take a few. Gradually, since hitting episode #100 it has been my good fortune to have the fuzzy warbles (see Andy Partridge) get increasingly clear. Those intricate inner brain connections that placed Andy from XTC in the prior sentence are seemingly back from hibernation, which was never a guarantee. I thank all of you for allowing me to continue this show, even though I am absolutely positive there had to be many times that I wasn’t quite making sense. So here we are at a landmark 200th episode, a full 6 hours, hand crafted to include only songs that I could listen to every day of the year. Hopefully, you will agree with most of them, and even better if you hear something new to you. Going forward, the plan is to make the shows shorter and more frequent and I am considering a name change. It feels like a new beginning and I have nothing but gratitude and love for those that have taken the ride so far. Hope you like it.

From The Basement #198
We begin the shortest month with Episode #198 and once again bid farewell to another musical icon. This time guitarist Tom Verlaine steps aboard the Tram to the After Party, as always sooner than we would like. We said goodbye to Billy Conway last year but now get to celebrate the release of a great tribute offered by his friends and musical comrades, Jeffrey Foucault, Laurie Sargent, Kris Delmhorst and the lone remaining Morphine member, Dana Colley among others. Warren Zevon finally arrives on the R&R Hall Nominee list and there are new releases from City and Colour, Field School and a brilliant new album from Joe Henry. Stick around until the end because James Deeley's new one arrived just in time to make it to the show. There are 9 days left in this fundraising cycle, which is when this link expires, https://www.paypal.com/pools/c/8QI2qLIzpG.
