  1. I really liked “I Am Not OK with This” – we watched it right before all this shit starting going down. It’s gets pretty crazy towards the end, but I liked how they handled it.

    Enjoyed this one tremendously, fellas. Nice work. As cliche as it may sound, John Prine’s music helped get me through a really rough time in my life and I’ll always be grateful for that. Was introduced to his work when I went off to boarding school as a 14 year-old by a friend from Eutaw, AL who had a really advanced music taste for a high school kid, to say the least. Really can’t articulate what specific aspect of Prine’s music or songwriting was so impactful – maybe all of it – or why, but it’s something I’ll carry with me all of my life.

    My contribution to the essential John Prine list would have to be “Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)”

    Agree wholeheartedly with Blaine on the overproduction of a lot of Townes Van Zandt’s records, particularly those that were released under the Poppy and Tomato labels in the 70’s (which is a shame because that was when his voice was at its best). Fortunately, even the most heavily-produced of Prine’s record never got that bad.

    Todd Snider had a brief article published last week on Rolling Stone’s website in which he mentions being a young guy new to Nashville and getting the chance to go with Prine over to hang out at Guy Clark’s house with Guy, Susannah, and Townes. Had to have been an incredible experience.


    • So glad you listened and go something out of our rambling!

      Prine has an effect on people, there is no doubt.

      Thanks again for listening. We are happy to know you’re out there, tuning us in on Tuesdays.
