Reflections on Recent Tragedy, and Info On This Week’s Show…

The Benefits and Challenges of Being American . . Seeing the World with New Eyes . . And This Week’s Show:

First, this week’s broadcast/podcast details: Nick & I welcome two musical guests who are true originals, each with their own identifiable, unique sound (when you hear them, you know immediately that it’s them). They are also totally different from each other (something we take pride in here at eTown, pairing seemingly disparate musical entities). The […]

Boy oh boy, am I excited! Love the broadcast/podcast we have for you, airing the week of 6/20 to 6/26: First-time eTown visitors The Infamous Stringdusters take the eTown stage, bringing their very own special sound, reflecting the old and new, the classic and progressive. This hugely popular bluegrass band is awesome in my book. […]

Additional thoughts on Doc, plus info on this week’s show on-the-air:

The result? A classic eTown experience. Here’s a […]
