Show #179 – Random Show

Going into tonight without a set plan.  Yes, Guy Clark recently passed away and we could have done a bit to commemorate his music, but honestly, neither of us are very familiar with Mr. Clark.  After his death, we did find out that he was really a songwriter’s songwriter.  One of the songwriters who other songwriters hold in high esteem.  He wasn’t really involved with the Bakersfield Sound, but, was separated by probably one or two degrees.  Maybe we’ll learn more about him and get into his music at some future show.

What we did do was play a set of music chosen at random by a computer based on past playlists because, well, we both have been pretty dang busy with our day jobs.  We thought it was a good show.  We dug the music.  Hope y’all did too.
