3 Chords & the Truth: Troubled waters
We may reside nowhere near them anymore, but we have our touchstones.
The things that make us who we are. The things that remind us who, and what, we are.
And sometimes we lose them. Sometimes -- for the love of money or whatever the hell else -- somebody destroys them.
Places . . . things . . . cultures are destroyed just because we humans can do it. That's what we do. We tear up stuff.
I'VE BLOGGED plenty about the latest calamity befalling my home state, Louisiana. It's tearing me up, and I'm half a continent away. Want to know what it's like to suspect you mail hail from the lost continent of Atlantis? Buy me a few beers, and I'll try to tell you.
That's what this edition of 3 Chords & the Truth is all about. I don't belabor the point this week -- that would make for entertaining radio, right? -- but that's what the show is mostly about.
I'm hopeful the music will speak for itself.
SO . . . that's the rundown on the latest episode of the Big Show. I'm betting that making a point, and venting via music, still can be entertaining. You be the judge.
Of course, to judge you have to listen.
It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
