Episode 276 – Vaden Todd Lewis of The Toadies

After 6 or so years of trying to get Vaden Todd Lewis on the show, I was finally able to get it done. Mostly because his band, The Toadies, released a legit Americana album. We talk about the new album, called Heretics, the history of The Toadies, The Burden Brothers, songwriting, social media, and more. Enjoy!

Episode 275 – Thrown Together With Style

I had a certain plan for this week’s episode. Unfortunately that plan fell through, so I had to figure out what to do at the last minute. So, this episode may be a bit thrown together, but I think it was done with excellent style. And by style, I mean music.  Enjoy!
