It’s the first full day of Summer!
Yuccas are blooming! (My favorite flower!)
It’s just the right time to enjoy the start of the season on Wednesday’s “Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 12PM-4PM EDT!!!
And the changing seasons seem to have created an opportunity to have talented-yet sometimes silly, Chris Broski to show up as a special guest!!!
It’s been almost three years since Michael Snyder-Barker and Broski, collaborating as Barker & Broski, unleashed the then unknown character and legend, “Billy Bob,” on an unsuspecting and naive music world!
Since then, another album, “The Legend of Billy Bob, Sr.” was released last year. (Or was it the year before? Time is distorted in a pandemic world!)
And not to fret, a new collection of songs has appeared as, “The Coal Country Heartbreakers!”
I have to think Billy Bob has some connection.
But maybe not.
Either way, Chris will be here to present the brand new material!
Will he answer all questions, or just create more?
Tune in after 3PM EDT to find out!
There will also be a “Top 9 at 2:09” weekly album countdown!
Stats for the week: 4 artist debuts, 8 new to newish releases, 14 artists with Southeast Michigan ties!!!
I will divide the tags into sections, but they will only be an estimate. I can’t guarantee that everything will fit into those slots, but I will try very hard to stick to them!
Songs by artists between 12PM-2:09PM should include Annie & Rod Capps (Happy Birthday Annie Capps!), Bob Hausler, Roger Ponder, Annie Fitzgerald (Annie Fitzgerald), The Chills, Janie Next Door – Jane Christison (Jane Christison), brand new Christopher Shayne, Ron St.Germain Music (Ron St Germain), Bobby Pennock (He’s playing YpsiAlehouse in Ypsilanti with Michael Snyder-Barker on Saturday, June 25), Carl Caballero and The Wreckage (Carl Caballero), John Holk & the Sequins (John Holkeboer) (playing “Top of the Park” in Ann Arbor today!), brand new Muruga Cosmic Boogie (They are playing The Token Lounge in Westland this Sunday, June 26), DAVY KNOWLES (He is playing The Token Lounge in Westland on Saturday, June 25!), Matt Harlan (Matt Harlan) with Rachel Jones, Elliot Schneider, Brady Clampitt (Brady Clampitt), brand new Ben Harper, Jehova Waitresses, and more!!!
