We spend some time saying goodbye to another musician that has left us entirely too young, Justin Townes Earle. Don’t miss the solo session I posted from him the day the news hit us. We’ll hear new stuff from eels, Bon Iver, Great Peacocks, Luna taking on Television, Sufjan Stevens, Josh Ritter and what could be my favorite new band, The Midnight Callers with a rocking cover of a Bill Withers classic. Speaking of classics, we find room for a very rare Hendrix single, a momo Family recording, some Dave Mason artifacts, Marti Jones, Unicorn, Dumptruck, a rare Ryan Adams tune and everything from The Buckinghams to Game Theory. And there’s still time for a dive into a new Willie Nile tribute album with tracks from old friends Kenny White, Richard Barone and James Maddock.

A massive power loss delayed the release of this latest episode, which we will deal with musically. We complete our tribute to the late Peter Green with some tasty odds and ends and celebrate the return of a pair of alternative music icons, The Psychedelic Furs and John Foxx. Neil Young’s 2020 reworking of “Looking For A Leader” send us off on a tangent including The Staples Singers, David Byrne, Garland Jeffreys, Action Figures, Soul Coughing, Nine Horses (David Sylvian) and more. There’s a new album from Irish band Fontanes D.C., new tracks from Robert Plant and Elvis Costello and Ben Harper & Rhianon Giddens put a fresh coat of paint on an old Nick Drake chestnut. This extra long episode has plenty more to offer from Jim James, David Bowie, Yes, King Curtis, Guadalcanal Diary, Too Much Joy, Love, Spirit, Charles Bradley and much more. Don’t forget to stick around after the closing theme for a hilarious new offering from Harry Shearer. Thanks so much for your support at https://paypal.me/pools/c/8beKwFWlHR and most of all for listening.
