First, let me start by telling you about this week’s special re-broadcast/podcast, one of my all-time ten favorite eTown shows: I don’t know about you, but I was pretty disappointed to hear that Joy Williams & John Paul White, who make up the musical duo known as The Civil Wars, are taking a break .

After The Flood . . And This Week’s Rebroadcast:

I know I am NOT speaking for everyone who has been impacted by the recent devastating floods here in Colorado, because I did not lose a home, an office, a town, a loved one. But I’ve noticed in the past few days that, sometimes, it’s almost as if the floods never happened. I mean, here […]

Thoughts on Labor Day, and this Week’s Broadcast/Podcast

Singer/ songwriter/ actor (and author) Steve Earle joins us once again in eTown, this time to rock out with his band The Dukes. A youthful protégé of legendary songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Steve quickly became a stellar songsmith himself, eventually evolving into a musical force to be reckoned with. His original tunes […]
