I am humbled by the responses to the first episode of my Podcast and the kind and encouraging emails, tweets and conversations from readers and musicians. So before the holidays kick into full gear I bring you, friends and neighbors,Twang Nation episode 2.
Fresh off the interview with the Civil Wars, upstairs at the historic Fillmore theater in San Francisco, I wanted to include their extraordinary title song from the current album Barton Hallow. If there is a super group and mainstream representatives for the Americana/roots music genre it’s Joy Williams and John Paul White. Also Houston’s own brings his own sweet brand of honky tonk as a chaser for those bittersweet beers. Mat D and the profane Saints and Jeannette Kantzalis were kind enough to send me some great unreleased cuts to include on the episode. Also I have also decided to end to the Podcast with a classic country song, on this episode David Allan Coe’s classic barroom number You Never Even Called Me by My Name.
It continues to be fun. Thanks for listening and please share with friends and family and leave any comments or requests below.
Featuring the pin-up beautiful and talented Little Lisa Dixie Blake, Norma Jean and Creepy Guy burns the yule by playing tasty cuts from Eric Kinsey & His Tip Top Daddies, Nine Pound Hammer, Zane Campbell, and Mr. Chill & The Witnesses.
IBWIP are also bringing back my favorite segment, Norma Jean Watches Porn. They are replacing Earlene’s Sexy Time Advice segment with the new Creepy Advice segment. What kind of show would it be without a IBWIP skit? In this episode the skit is titled, “IBWIP Meets Santa At The Mall”. Finally, the crew break out the presents and have the first ever IBWIP Gift Exchange. IBWIP is better than that nasty sweater from your Aunt Edna!
If reading hurts your head but still keep up with real country goings-on then might I suggest you check out a little something entitled “It Burns When I Pee.”
That’s right friends, no longer just an embarrassing medical condition “It Burns When I Pee” is no also a great podcast of kindred spirits spreading the gospel of bone-fide country music and helping to fight the scourge of pop-country mediocrity!
Sound like too much for one little podcast to handle? Then head over to Section86.com, download an installment and see for your own doubting-thomas self! The newest episode features an interview with Scott H. Biram and an album review of Wayne “The Train” Hancock’s album Tulsa from Jared Morningstar.
And then there’s IHWIP’s Cheyenne. Worth the price of admission alone.
