Tune in tonight for the first show broadcast from our new station! It’s gonna be a birthday-themed extravaganza in honor of my younger brother and all things awesome. Expect new releases from Guy Clark and Jason Isbell and some old-school live tunes from Hank Williams among the other fabulous tracks we’ll spin.

Andrew Bird - If I Needed You (Townes Van Zandt Cover)

This is for Noah, because he likes Andrew Bird. And for me because I love Townes. And I love Townes covers.

Moving On

Moving on can be hard to do, but it’s an important step in all of our lives and like many things do, Straighten Up and Fly Right has moved on. I’ve merged my radio show with the great Lake Isle of Innesfree show that occupied the Thursday morning slot so that its DJay and I can offer the world a new show, rich with variety and intrigue. That show is The Bruised Orange, and it will be on air Friday nights from 8-10 Central time on KWUR radio. Here’s the link to the tumblr page for the new show so you can stay up to date with all the info! I hope you’ll tune in and give change a chance. We’re not moving away, we’re moving up.
