Show # 244 – Gushers and Conspiracies

On the 10th of January in 1901 the first oil well gusher in Texas kicked off the American Oil Industry. So why not celebrate it in song. We found some good songs about oil, and a few about gasoline.

Nine years ago on January 8th, Mike was invited to KWMR for the first time, to bring some Elvis tracks to play on a show when Amanda was subbing. It was Elvis Presley’s birthday, which is shared by another music legend, David Bowie. So Bowie and Elvis were played, and then Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers. And the rest is history.

The 10th of January is also the anniversary of David Bowie’s death. The last part of the show, dives deeper into Elvis’ unreleased Black Star track, later released as Flaming Star, and then Bowie’s last album, also titled Black Star. You decide.

Show #245 – Double Shots of Vinyl

One might say we were being “lazy” to spin double shots on vinyl, but it’s still some work to queue up all those records. And we think that vinyl sounds so sweet on the FM airways, that often we just spin wax. Digging deep into the random collection of country and honky tonk records.
