New release from the Counting Crows that sounds like it could have been on August and Everything After; he’s a bit of freak himself but I still love this guy’s voice:

Good song. Thanks for that. I loved August & Everything After, their cover of Big Yellow Taxi and their cover of Carmelita. Don Imus got me into Carmelita.

Figure some of the Gen X types here would appreciate this. Mayer definitely channeling some 80s classics with his new stuff....

Have to give a shout out to my friend Dave, who's Jazz album Solace is at #13 on the NACC Jazz Charts right now. He's an amazing Sax player. Jazz is his real love, but Boston area folks into Ska may remember Plate O'Shrimp as well.

I think I’ve posted about James Maddock before. This one popped up on my iPod this morning; it’s the first one I ever heard from him and I was hooked instantly. I have since purchased most of his catalog and seen him live (opening for Ian Hunter at FTC Stage One iirc). Great artist; great song:

Your post reminded me of another artist that I have not listened too in a while David Baerwald. If your not familiar with his music download all his stuff he is that good. Singer song writer exstrodinar very under rated, he used to be with a band called David and David (1 album) also excellent stuff. His Triad album just mind blowing.

Nice. Thanks for the tip. He reminds me a bit of Cris Jacobs, who used to be with The Bridge (a great, underrated band from MD) and now has his own band and also plays solo:

Honestly I never heard of him, played your video and liked it. Went and download one his albums Color Where You Are, will check out rest of catalog in time. Was only able to listen to 1st song and liked it.Very similar to David Baerwald. Thanks, will thoroughly enjoy it I'm sure.

OK, maybe not you on the Apple, that was more for Deepster.

I get the "I love radio" part. I just don't feel that way in 2021 as it's been so long since I've heard decent radio. If you can convince me that there's another "Idiot's Delight" out there, maybe I'd change my mind.

As far as Pandora's algorithm goes, I found it weirder and more eclectic than Spotify, even though the latter has a much larger library. My Lyle Lovett station is a trip. All sorts of weirdness there. I've got 15 or so stations, some based on specific songs.

I particularly enjoy my "Kelly's Heroes" (Black Grape) station (as an aside, I'll argue with anyone that "It's Great When Your Straight" was the best album of the 90s). I just put on whatever I'm in the mood for and I'm good for a couple hours, or if I'm feeling wild, there's always shuffle.

You'll find this amusing. While my channels represent a number of genres (none of them Van Morrison), pretty much all of them eventually land on one or more Van Morrison tunes.
Listen to WXRT on free Audacy app. Pretty much any time; afternoon drive through midnight is when I still put on terrestrial via digital. Chicago station.

Blues based rock, if you like Free, Black Crowes and Rival Sons. Check them out. Band I'd called Mojothunder.

I have no explanation, but I woke up on Monday with this song in my head. I feel like it's a very Boneyard tune.

If you just want to cry to somebody
Don't cry to me
No don't cry to me
