Music Podcast 019: Florida Music – Top 5 Edition (Featuring Ray Charles, Tom Petty, Skynyrd, Allman Brothers Band, The Doors)

This is a collection of toe-tappin’ songs from the all-time top 5 bands and artists from Florida (at least according to a semi-spammy blog post I found). 

Why Florida?

Simple, because I was there last week and sounded like an interesting rabbit hole to go down.

Music Podcast 018: Minnesota Music – Mellow-ish Addition (Featuring Atmosphere, The Jayhawks, Nicholas David, Soul Asylum, POLICA, Farewell Milwaukee, more)

So how does Minnesota stack up with the rest of the world music-wise?

Press play and listen for yourself.

This is a continuation of a series about unearthing some great music from the state of Minnesota.

Last time we listened to music that was more Americana in nature. In this episode, other than all of the music being on the mellower side, I mix it up a bit genre-wise.

So strap on your open mind and prepare to expand your taste in music just a little more.

Oh and side note…

The music in this podcast is best served over a decent pair of headphones or a great Hi-Fi system. Some of these songs really come alive when you are more immersed.

Also, have another state that you think has great music, let me know and lets explore.

Listen now.

Music Podcast 014: Minnesota Music – Americana Edition (Featuring Charlie Parr, Trampled By Turtles, Mason Jennings, Mike Munson, Mikkel Beckman)

What musicians and bands come to mind when you think of Minnesota?

I bet most people would think Prince, Bob Dylan, or Soul Asylum or The Replacement.

BUT there is a ton of great music up here in the land of 10,000 lakes.

Here’s a grab bag of songs made in or deeply connected with Minnesota. This edition will feature a little Folk, a little blues, some bluegrass, and whatever else falls under the umbrella of Americana.

Music Podcast 013: Sleeper Spotlight Featuring Britny Fox

A lot of really good music by really good bands gets buried.

One of those bands, in my humble opinion, is Britny Fox.

They are a hard rock/glam metal band from the late 80’s. 

In this podcast I go deep into their catalog and pull out few really good rock tunes.

Tune you’ll probably never hear on any other podcast.

Listen now.

Music Podcast 012: 2021 Alt Country Post Punk Rock Melancholy (Featuring Justin Townes Earle, Steve Earle, Viagra Boys, That Handsome Devil, The Dirty Nil )

I went searching for some of the best new songs from very early 2021.

What I ended up finding along the way was unexpected.

First, some sad news about an old favorite of mine. 

Second, a common “feel” from each song despite them being from a wide variety of genres.

Listen now to see if you feel it too.
