iVoryTowerz Radio: Los Muertos Regresan

The underground podcast (which appears to be disturbingly above ground for all the wrong reasons these days) returns with a vengeance this week. And the mood, no doubt is affected by the season. Various types of spirits (malevolent, benign, pleasant, and nostalgic) seem to be floating around this podcast. So with Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, and various pagan and Christian harvest festivals colliding, no better time to resurrect the sounds of some gifted artists who have gone on to that next dimension, especially our beloved Steve Goodman. All the better reason for half the program to be produced this week from Chicago! And as usual, we unearth great tunes from the living too, not to mention new releases. As usual, the playlist runs the gamut: folk, soul, nu metal, indie rock, Latin rock, psychedelia, new wave, and a little shock rock for good measure. So put on your mask and dance like there's no tomorrow. And please, enjoy!

John Prine didn't write My Old Man -- Steve Goodman did. Prine recorded it on Goodman's tribute album.

Thanks for the notation, but on the playlist we usually put down the performer and the song. So if you listen to the podcast you'll hear Prine performing that Goodman song (just like later in the program there's Luther Wright & the Wrongs performing another Goodman number "City of New Orleans"). We properly note on the program that "My Old Man" is a Goodman cover, and Prine also notes this during his performance. We are Goodman fans. We wouldn't get this wrong.
