Heatwave

Hot enough for you? Ever wonder how hot it is in Hell? If you’re anywhere near me, this oppressive heat is starting to melt brain cells, until kkoak[ais-inklwnmm. Well, you get it. Boy, it’s hot around here. Stay cool, my friends.

Today I’m looking back at songs from the first half of the year with my semi-annual check-in. So find some shade and listen to The Black Keys, Yola, Rose Elinor Donahue, Olver Kennan, Sharon Van Etten, Toro y Moi, Bob Mould, Pedro the Lion, Gang of Four, the Beat, the Cash Box Kings, Death and Vanilla, Norah Jones, and Joe Jackson.

Dead of Summer

It’s really been hot and humid lately. We’ve also had thunderstorms frequently – a strange, hot summer so far. And let’s hope that Barry is as friendly as his name, and not the monster storm they’re predicting for the New Orleans area.

Since it’s summer, let’s have some summer songs. Leading off the podcast is a new one from the Black Keys, followed by the Buffalo Springfield, Doug Sahm, Drive-By Truckers, Steve Earle, Gino Washington, Eric Clapton, the West Coast Experimental Art Band, Kate Bush, Goldfrapp, Rose Elinor Donahue, Stevie Wonder, and Dr. John.

Hot Town, Summer in the City

Hope everyone had a good July 4 holiday. We had family over for the holiday (I did work Friday – work never stops). It was pretty hot over the holidays, but I survived it.

As part of the family fun days, we went to the beach. As a person of Irish descent, my pasty white skin burns easily. To combat this, I bought an umbrella/tent thing. Wasn’t sure how well it would work, but it was perfect. Big enough for two people to sit under comfortably, along with the cooler and other assorted items. Now I can go to the beach and not have to worry about getting sunburnt. Recommended.

Got some great tunes lined up this week; check it out with Bruce Cockburn, Ronnie Lane, the Bears, Van Morrison, the Cash Box Kings, Solomon Burke, Darrell Banks, Carla Thomas, the Four Tops, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, and Clarence Gatemouth Brown.
