This week's playlist:
• Copperhead Road by Steve Earle, from Live at Montreux 2005 (2006), available from the iTunes Music Store and Amazon.com. For more information and all things Earle, visit The Original Unofficial Steve Earle Site, which is filling in while SteveEarle.com is under construction.
Mentioned during this show: if you'd like to listen to podcasts without the little white box, visit NoiPodRequired.com to learn about other methods for podcast listening.
Also: A listener asked me recently to edit out portions of episodes in which I mention the listener, and suggested I then re-post the shows - something that's virtually impossible to accomplish without making a total hash of the feed. I'd like your thoughts - should I leave the shows as they are, or take those shows down completely? Use the email button on the right side of this page to send me your thoughts, send an audio file, or call the Murphy's Saloon comment line: 312-239-0678. Remember, if you write or call, your comments may be read or played as part of a future Murphy's Saloon episode.
Excellent online resources for more information about the blues: The Blues Foundation and the Delta Blues Museum; and be sure to download and listen to the DBM's top-notch (and free) podcast, the Uncensored History of the Blues.
(Music on Murphy's Saloon #60 courtesy of the artists and the Podsafe Music Network, where I obtained many of these tracks)
