69: Out of Left Field

Out of the Left Field

A Year of Unexpected Jams

All due credit to faithful listener of the pod Chad Coates for suggesting the theme for this week’s episode. Way back in November, Chad sent us a list of “unexpected jams,” extended versions of songs or super long “>” buried in a setlist that, on paper, might look a little sleepy. Chad picked some sure fire winners for us from the year 2000 – he has some other suggestions, too, and we definitely think we will go back to this well again. Come for the jams, stay for the in depth break down of Elvis Tribute Artist competitions and the Asheville, NC beer scene. Front to back, this is a winner of an episode!
