iVoryTowerz Radio: Clues & Obituaries

And just what does that title mean? Well, as the wise tell us, the answers sometimes aren't at the end of the trip, but rather are sprinkled throughout the journey. If it seems like this week the underground podcast is "workin' on mysteries without any clues," well perhaps you are correct. Life is often a mysterious voyage, and at this time of year, contemplating different stories of how various people embark on that excursion in modern times has us philosophizing. Here's a soundtrack for those deep thoughts. The eclectic mix is here, covering music from the past 45 years, but also with plenty of recent releases. The mix includes: folk, Americana, rockabilly, blues-rock, and heavy metal. There's even a hefty dose of comedy and some frontera sounds blended in for good measure to leaven the mood. If you want rock 'n roll that will get you thinking, this is the show for you. Or at least it will have you scurrying to unlock the musical clues. Rock on!
