EGC Clambake Episode for April 12, 2005

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for April 12, 2005.

We have a winner in the iPodderX contest! I talk about living in Conway SC and buying used cars from psychics; I relate my hopes about creating a whole alternate media system; I lay out the Paul Melancon Interview Roadmap; I’m a sucker for sad songs and I play (with permission) a sad song from Camper Van Beethoven; bye.

This episode is sponsored in part by the fine folks at iPodderX! Don’t forget, you can fly your EGC flag by buying the stuff package.

    Interestingly, as you mention “Big Bizang”, I have a copy of the CD sitting on my desk. I’m sure that Slacker Astronomy won’t make the audio available, since it’s from a CD.

    Head on over to, and order yourself a copy of “MC Hawking – A Brief History of Rhyme”. Some tracks are okay, but a few are great, with “Entropy” being a standout.

    Alison Krauss and Union Station does more sad songs and does them better than any band I know. She often jokes about this.

    Love your shows. You asked for feedback on the shorter shows: Don’t fret over the length. Make them however long they need to be say what you want to say. Maybe one is 15 minutes and another is an hour. It will also be nice when you no longer tell us about your time pressures, and just continue to do quality shows.

    Been a listener for a long time and wanted to tell you that I COMPLETELY agree with you about the direction the music industry is going and what we can do to help it. It’s a great time to be an indie artist and I think that it’s going to get even better. If you haven’t yet you should swing by as we are trying to do some cool stuff for music.

    I forgot to say the other day, I am totally enjoying the Paul Melancon music you’ve been playing. So far, Arts and Sciences, Michelle Malone, Jill Sobule, and Sonia Tetlow are my favorites out of what you play.

    And after ordering the EGC stuff just for the t-shirt and to help the show, thinking I wouldn’t like the Gentle Readers CD, it turns out I was wrong. I’m not gung-ho wild about them as you are, but they’re growing on me.

    Michele Shocked is OK. I’d have to listen to more of her music to really tell if she’s worth buying.

    I did buy Camper’s “New Roman Times” CD after you played some tracks from it, but I didn’t like the rest of the tracks.

    I still don’t get why you like DQE, though. Send me a CD and maybe they’ll grow on me.

    Just kidding! 🙂
