This is the first of the weekly road song’s and hopefully of many to come. So why start at episode 293? Just because it’s part of the weekly rotation. I dunno. Maybe I should start with 1, but then I’d have to keep up with two sets of number. Too much trouble.

In any case, the first Taproot Road Song is “Whammer Jammer” by the J. Geils Band. One of the all time greatest live tunes and arguably one of the tunes that put The J. Geils Band on the map. I love the opening harmonica riff that sets the backbone for the whole thing. I love the acoustic piano riffs and how it builds into the quintessential roadhouse tune. Great tune for driving down the highway and a great tune to kick off the Taproot Road Song series
