Ready for an all-out fanboy episode of For Songs? This is it! In this special show, I speak with former Soul Asylum guitarist/singer Dan Murphy, who still performs one-off gigs with my favorite band from my college years, alt.country supergroup Golden Smog. We talk about two brand-new songs from a yet-to-be-released album and two songs from Golden Smog’s first full-length album, Down by the Old Mainstream. Making this even better, we discuss our love for the Clash, and he shares how he tried to convince Joe Strummer to join Soul Asylum onstage at a show in New York. If that’s not enough to get you to listen in to this, I’m not sure what will.

Sometimes an interview is an education. That was the case when I spoke with Eli Cook, the brilliant blues guitarist based just southwest of Charlottesville, Va. Eli is a true student of music, but in this interview, he was the teacher. Join us as Eli takes us on a journey that crosses generations and how he created a sound inspired by the past but authentic to his times.
