iVoryTowerz Radio: Euphemisms & Icons

Not that the underground podcast is having to stoop to using the tactics of shock jocks and blue radio, but mature subject matter is certainly on board this week. The lyrics, as usual, are much rougher than anything your gentlemen hosts would usually say. Nevertheless, this podcast has a late fall mood, adult topic matter, and the presence of some of major forces in music. Dylan, Bowie, Simon, McCartney, and even Zappa get their due on this program, plus quite a few of our other favorites. (Hey, it wouldn't be December without our annual nod to Zappadan.) This show moves from the avant-garde and eclectic, through electronica, new wave, post-punk, metal, blues, and folk. Tune us in and we'll put a smile on your face.
