The Americana Rock Mix (general)

Honestly, I can't believe I've been doing this for 7 years. That is around 5 times longer than the typical life expectancy of a site that's run and operated by one guy. It has opened many creative outlets for me, and has connected me with some amazing people. Some of which I'm even lucky enough to call "friend". From the simple beginnings of the infancy of podcasting, which still had the air of "pirate radio online", to the now "sophisticated" outlet of celebrities. There's one thing that makes it worth while. The listeners. YOU. While I'm neither a music pirate nor a celebrity (by any stretch of the imagination), you make me feel important. You make me feel like I'm contributing something to someone, somewhere. Even if it is only for an hour every week. But that feeling that you guys give me, is what keeps this train a-rollin'. With that being said, there's not really anything special about this episode. I'm horrible at planning these anniversary episodes. But it is full of some GREAT music that I think you'll dig. I have a bit of a rant (which I know some of you enjoy listening to me bitch about things), and I introduce something that might help you and I connect better with other listeners. Enjoy!
