3 Chords & the Truth: Turn down the lights

Turn down the lights.

This episode of 3 Chords & the Truth is best listened to with the lights low. Curled up somewhere. In something comfortable.

Sipping on your favorite beverage.

And preferably in the still of the night.

That's because, at heart, your Mighty Favog is just your all-night DJ, spinning some midnight music in the semidarkness of a radio studio . . . after hours. The overnight man spins his records, and he brings the microphone real close. Like this.

He speaks softly . . . over the airwaves, in the predawn darkness, a friendly voice in the night. It's the Big Show. And you're along for the ride.

Can you dig it? I knew that you could.

SOMETIMES, your pilot of the airwaves (Charlie Dore, 1979 . . . but that's not important now) gets in a mood, as opposed to a toot. This trip on the 3 Chords & the Truth-go-round represents one of those times.

I'm in a mood. A night music mood.

You don't know where it's going; you just know that it will be unique. You know that it'll be good.

You know that it's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
