Our busiest year ever continues. I believe I am now in
record territory for most podcasts I've put out in a year.
(Actually, it shatters it when you consider I now regularly put out
three different podcasts and have guested on two others so far this
year). This episode marks the first of four episodes recorded
back-to-back, which seems to be the rythm we're in right now on
alternate Saturdays. It's also the main reason you're seeing
a lot of carry-over guests hosts and in-jokes from previous
episodes and is a strong argument for why you need to download each
and every show. Basically these are a lot of fun to do, but
as anyone who has waited patiently for their show to get out on the
feed will tell you, editing and mastering is a pain with volume
levelling, time crunching, writing endless introductory posts (like
this one), and meticulously researching show notes now several
times a week.
Kicking of this block of shows is James Kramer, a musical chameleon who over a long career has been seen to play jam band, bluegrass, rock, blues, country, and singer/songwriter. For this episode, he treats us to a couple of live in-studio performances, a classic cut, and previously unheard cut from his upcoming album. Those four tracks alone show the range of his influences and abilities, but at the same time you can't help but feel there must be a lot more lurking under that mischevious grin of his.
