Howdy,

This week’s musical surprise was a new CD from a British guy by the name of Bobby Long. Sorta reminds me of a Ray LaMontagne-ish singer songwriter but a little bit of Springsteen thrown in. Also, the long awaited Okra and Ecclesiastes from Grant Peeples hit my mailbox. If you’re into Ray Wylie Hubbard, (and who isn’t?), you’ll want to give this one a listen too.

I had the chance to talk to Gurf Morlix for episode 22 of the Taproot Radio Podcast. He talks about his Blaze Foley tribute CD and the Blaze Foley documentary that he’ll be touring with. He also talks about how he got started as a producer.

Dig Deep,
Calvin
