Ninebullets Radio – An Americana Music Podcast: Episode 18: The Search For The New Normalcy Edition:

Sorry I had to start this show the same way I ended the last show but what has really changed?

Anyone who thought I was gonna come out hard in the last show, pat myself on the back, and move on doesn’t know me. Truth is. Since the last show the police have fired an unknown amount of tear gas at peaceful protesters. Truth is, since my last show the police have killed 3 more unarmed black men shooting one in the back as he ran away from them. Truth is, since my last show 5 black men have been found hanging from trees.

In 20-fucking-20.

I want this show to get back to (open quote) normal (close quote) but I have no figured out what normal is yet but I think I am closer to it with this show than I was 3 months ago.

I am political as eff. If you know me, you know I have strong opinion on politics and that viewpoint is most definately gonna bleed into this podcast. Don’t like it? Leave.

Got some pretty killer stuff for y’all in this episode. Brand new material from Matt Woods, Justin Wells, Will Quinlan, Margo Price, Larkin Poe, Jamie Wyatt, Morgan Wade and Zach Bryan. Got a collection of requests and some more social commentary via music.

I hope y’all enjoy our, largely, return to the normal format.

OH! SEE THAT NEW GRAPHIC AT THE TOP OF THE THIS POST? I got koozies and stickers with that on them. Five dollars will get you pne of each and the money get repurposed into supporting bands trying to keep it together during these streaming times. All shipping and costs required to get them made are coming straight out of my pocket. 100% of the money collected is going to keeping bands and independent venues a float how ever meager my contribution is. Send the 5 spot via paypal to: autopsy4@gmail.com

Here is the playlist [Artist – Song (Album)]:

01. Run The Jewels – JU$T (RTJ4)

Ninebullets Radio – An Americana Music Podcast: Episode 17: The Elephant In The Room Edition

I’ll be honest with y’all. I had planned for the women’s show to be the last themed show. I had planned for this to be the return to normalcy in Ninebullets Radio land. Well. As 2020 and particularly the last week and half have shown. Nothing is normal and as a result, this show can’t be either. I deeply believe that there is truth in the saying that silence is complicity and I refuse to be complicit in any manner to what we are seeing from our government and the police. So. Today I will utilize my platform, this show, however meger it may be to raise my voice and some of the voices in the black community. I understand this will likely anger some of my listeners and they will decide to “cancel” me. I am fine with that and will sleep better with you not being in the fold. Just please cancel me silently. I don’t need a email, DM, or Facebook message telling me you’re cancelling. I grew up in Plant City, Florida and I have heard enough ignorant white rants to last me a lifetime.

With that said.

As you can likely tell from that opening spoken word piece from the incredibly talented poet, RJ Walker this is not gonna be a positive show. I’m sorry I can’t offer you a playlist that’s peppered with optimism and hope. Truth is. Any hope I had died in the 8 minutes I spent watching George Floyd call for his mother as he died. Any optimism that was left in me died as I stared at all the names in the image at the top of this post. This show is gonna be defiant, destructive and, frankly, pissed off. I am pissed off. I am especially pissed off cause, as Brother Ali says in this show, “Fist is raised but I must be insane because I can’t figure a single goddamn way to change it.” Just like you I am watching the news and seeing people protesting police brutality being met with increased police brutality. So what the fuck are we, as citizens, supposed to do with that?

I am sad I have to do this show. That said, I’m here. I am showing up, as a white person to say: Yes. White Privilege exists (and as a white male I cash in on this twice). Yes. Systemic racism exists in every aspect of American culture. And Yes. Black Lives Matter.

I hope you listen to this entire show. I know white privilege is a tough thing for white people to confront in the solitude of their own living room much less in the company of others. What I am saying is that some of what you might hear in the next hour and 15 minutes might make you squirm a little. That is okay. We live in a country that treats racism like that stitch in your side that you don’t learn is cancer until it has metastasized. So. Please listen to the entire thing and try to see the point of views these songs and speeches present. I feel like this is an important show. I know that it is all over the place genre wise but I picked these songs deliberately for their messages, not the banjo.

Anyhow. Here is the playlist [Artist – Song (Album)]:

01. RJ Walker – Said the Confederate Flag to the American Flag
02. Clutch – The Mob Goes Wild (Blast Tyrant)
03. Corrosion of Conformity – Vote With A Bullet (Blind)
04. Rage Against the Machine – Know Your Enemy (Rage Against The Machine)
05. Prophets Of Rage – Unfuck The World (Prophets of Rage)
06. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Ohio (4 Way Street)
07. Jimmy LaFave – Worn Out American Dream (Buffalo Return to the Plains)
08. Drive-By Truckers – What It Means (What It Means)
09. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – White Privilege II (This Unruly Mess I’ve Made)
10. Brother Ali – Uncle Sam Goddamn (The Undisputed Truth)
11. LL Cool J – Black Lives Matter Freestyle
12. Frank Turner – Make America Great Again (Be More Kind)
13. Kory Quinn – Last Broken Town (Black Gold Blues)
14. William Elliot Whitmore – Mutiny (Animals in the Dark)
15. Kimberly Jones – How Can We Win
16. Run The Jewels – JU$T (feat. Pharrell Williams & Zack de la Rocha) (RTJ4)

Ninebullets Radio – An Americana Music Podcast: Episode 16: Ladies night edition

I have learned over the years of podcasting and radio that not every show will be fire. Most will be good. Some will be failures and some will just be monsters. I think this week’s show is a monster. I have been doing these weekly one hour shows in as much as an effort to break up my own boredom as anything else but I felt like this show deserved the full 9B Radio treatment. So we’re clocking in at 1 hour and 43 minutes of women killing it in the modern Americana scene. I had pulled the Dolly, the Loretta, the Emmylou’s and the Patsy’s but had to kill them because there are just too many women just beastmodeing this shit in 2020 to even fuck with legacy acts. Yes. I know I left a lot of mad talented women on the cutting room floor. It is not a statement to their talent. I love Lilly Hiatt just as much as you it was just the song I pulled never mixed well as it’s all about the flow in the end. Anyhow. I hope y’all think this show is as good as I do.

01. Dan Bern – Chick Singers (Fifty Eggs)
