3 Chords & the Truth: Gather 'round the iFi
One night of spin is what I'm praying for.
Wait . . . that doesn't sound quite right.
Or does it sound completely right? One night of spinning your favorite records on a machine so pretty that I'll bet the late Steve Jobs was envious of it. Yeah . . . sounds good. Sounds right.
I guess what 3 Chords & the Truth is all about is bridging realities, past and present. It's about putting a bunch of music together from yesterday and today, then mashing it all together as we try to translate the tactile, personal aesthetic of music and radio yesterday to the digital world of iWhatever today.
THIS, I suppose, is done in hope of a better tomorrow.
That's the executive summary of what the Big Show is all about and what this episode of the Big Show is about. It's about bringing things together -- people together.
It's about bringing all kinds of music together, because there basically are only two kinds. Good and bad. The bad, we don't mess with. I've said that before and, no doubt, will say it again. And again.
So drop in, grab a cold one and grab a chair over here next to the hi-fi. There's a record party going on. We call it 3 Chords & the Truth . . . or the Big Show.
IT'S 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
