Scrappy manages to crank out lucky podcast 13 just before heading out on a lost weekend in Iceland with Julian Assange. Michael Moore and a film crew will be there to capture the action, and you have the podcast here so you can follow along at home.
Running late after having to deal with the whole Scrappyleaks fiasco for most of the week, Scrappy is finally able to get podcast 12 out the door. Overusing the term “pay tribute” to the point where it’s laughable, Scrappy is broadcasting live from Houston, Texas, where he, umm, pays tribute to George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass, to African pop music of the 60’s and 70’s and to Houston. I can dig it, can YOU dig it baby?
Scrappy’s back from Canada and presents a musical tribute to his neighbors from the north. He also steps right up and fills requests from some of his multitude of rabid fans. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, even if your family is driving you crazy.
This week’s special guest, Marvis Foley, decided not to drive up to Michigan to tape the show. Instead he sent a box of records with instructions on what songs to play. So listen to Marv’s choices, but with Scrappy leading the charge.
Say Hey! Fresh from a visit to Kentucky and the farm where Zenyatta was foaled, Scrappy’s back with some sweet sixties pop, some Freedy Johnston, a wee bit ‘o Fatboy Slim and oh, so much more.
We’re broadcasting from studio B this week. No overarching themes on this podcast, just the usual free-form collection of tracks from the McGowan music library. From Penguin Cafe Orchestra to Carmen McCrae to Stevie Wonder to Frank Zappa, this ain’t your father’s podcast – well that is unless you’re my kids. In that case it IS your father’s podcast.
This week’s podcast features all live recordings. From Santana to Loudon Wainwright III, Paul Sturm to Nina Simone, it’s all live, all the time.
Noam Chomsky was a no show, instead Scrappy is joined this week by the ghost of Howard Zinn. Come, be with them as they remember the lives of John Lennon and Solomon Burke. Scrappy also pays tribute to New York in song.
Scrappy hits the road this week, broadcasting live from Minnesota, where he brings you his own special brand of free-form musical goodness. So join Scrappy and his crew as they broadcast live from Sol LeWtt Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler in Edina, MN.
This week Scrappy goes under the covers to bring you new and different versions of your favorite tracks. Some will surprise you, some will delight you, hopefully they will leave you begging for more.
On this week’s podcast Scrappy celebrates two remarkable women as well as celebrating the coming of fall. Come join Scrappy but don’t forget to wear your autumn sweater.
Podcast number two is available for your listening pleasure. Number two features a musical journey that takes you from the pie case of the Croton Diner to South Africa and back again.
It’s been 23 years since my last broadcast at the late, great WQAX in Bloomington, IN and, that seemed like a long enough break from the mic and the turntable.
When I threw my hat into the Internet ring back in 1995 it was because I saw the Internet as the great equalizer; I saw it as a tool that would allow a musician to produce, distribute and profit from their music, free from the record companies which turned musicians into little more than musical sharecroppers. And so it seems only fitting that getting back behind the mic now allows me to be broadcasting from home via the internet.
With the hope of putting together regular podcasts, I hope you enjoy listening. And as always, the request lines are open…
