This week’s show welcomes musical guest BRULÉ feat. special guest Paul LaRoche. In between all the music, Mike shares a story about a 16th-century philosopher and some contemplations on mercy. Information on streaming the show here.
Thanks to Stu. He chose “Coop” for the Luther College Reads poster project. Stu’s corn is way ahead of mine.
Back here on the farm there is sun on the snow and it’s time to say thank you. Thank you to Erik Kjelland for all the work he puts into the Wisconsin Vinyl Collective project and its work with the Keep Wisconsin Warm (and Cool) fund (helping veterans, elderly, disabled, or working families with young children). The Long Beds have never been on vinyl before, and now we are. You can find the LP here, as well as previous volumes (and non-vinyl versions as well).
Thank you to Erik’s band The Mascot Theory. We just spent three days in a row listening as they ripped through a set that ranged from heart-floating ballads to guitar-driven thumpers that flat rock your face off. More on The Mascot Theory here.
Thank you to Bascom Hill for three nights of super-tight harmonies across a range of songs that took the audience beyond genre and into the moment. More on Bascom Hill here.
And thanks to the Long Beds, who give the music wings while I chug along.
