The Americana Rock Mix ( podcast)

Well, I'm on the road again. It's not a matter of having stuff prepared, it's a matter having time to sit down in the studio to properly record the show. So, I'm recording this on my iPhone, and I'm splicing in the music later. So at least the tunes will sound good, even if my crappy audio recording doesn't.  Enjoy!

(from The Damnwells)

I actually recorded this episode last week, but some technical problems with my mp3 host prevented me from getting this online. So, better late than never! This is a DIGITAL mailbag episode. Typically I'll open press packages that I receive in physical form, and play a couple of tracks that I haven't even heard yet. This is the same concept, only these are MP3's and WAV files that I received instead.  Enjoy!
