iVoryTowerz Radio: Barack 'n Roll Edition

The inauguration of President Barack Obama this week brings historic moments even to the underground podcast. This program is our musical tip of the hat to the new president. And also in the spirit of the change the new president has already brought to Washington, the podcast makes major technological breakthroughs. Long-time listeners will notice this week's podcast is a bit clearer through the magic of VOIP (voice-over internet protocol). But what hasn't changed is the underground eclectic mix. Not only does the program feature the stirring anthem of the week delivered by the Queen of Soul, but there's plenty of Motown and soul on this week's program too. There's also classic rock, psychedelia, alt-country, new wave, post-punk and heavy metal. This program covers 45 years of music, but still includes a hefty slice of new rock. So join us in our salute, and, of course, rock on!
