3 Chords & the Truth: At least there's this
The world has gone to s***, Japan has been laid to waste, thousands of American politicians have yet to be exiled to Siberia, the missus is sick as a dog and I ain't feeling so hot myself.
Let's curl up under something warm, grab a hot cuppa tea, put on 3 Chords & the Truth and make the world go away.
(Timi Yuro, 1963. Eddy Arnold, 1965.)
That's all I can think of to do right now. Maybe that's all we can do right now -- not give up on joy, embrace the music and put on the Big Show. Y'know?
ANYWAY, we have another fine episode for you this week, full of tasty nuggets of pop, alt, jazz, rock, indie and New Wave goodness. Not sure what more to say about it than that.
We got vintage LPs from the 1960s to play. We got local Omaha artists you don't know about but should.
We got the '50s. We got the '70s. We got the '80s, '90s and uh-ohs.
It's the Big Show, so you know we got it all. Is this 300 words, teacher?
WELL, it's good enough for government work. But the show is much, much better than government work. If you don't believe your Mighty Favog, give it a listen and hear for yourself.
Gotta go. Gotta curl up under something. Gotta let the music take me away from what ails us.
Why don't you do that, too?
It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
