I could tell you all about this week's exciting and relevant episode of 3 Chords & the Truth, but . . . no.

Rest assured, however, that you remain in our thoughts and prayers.

It's the Big Show, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

When the crazy gets to be too much, I get in a mood for the music equivalent of comfort food. I'll bet you do, too. My happy place lies in the memories of radio when I could still count my age on two hands and a foot. My happy place is filled with all kinds of music . . . a wonderful world of music that's every bit as satisfying as a plate of fried chicken -- or pan-fried steak and onions -- with a slice of apple pie for dessert. The comfort music of 3 Chords & the Truth comes from the "misty water-colored mem'ries of the way we were," from AM radios playing Top-40 tunes, from the middle-of-the-road stations on the kitchen radio . . . from trailblazing weekend magazine shows like Monitor on the NBC Radio Network. ACTUALLY, Monitor was about the only magazine show on network radio before National Public Radio borrowed heavily from the formula beginning in 1971. Only Monitor was much more diverse, ran hours a day all weekend long and played a lot more music. "Grown-up music," to be sure, but some of it was pretty snappy. In a misty, water-colored mem'ry kind of comfort-foody way. That's where we're going on the Big Show this week. It's not the first time. Probably won't be the last. Linus had his security blanket; I got this. And now you got this, too. Enjoy. IT'S 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

This is an unusual edition of the Big Show, which this week explores the whole notion of . . . home. Was Thomas Wolfe right in his posthumous 1940 novel, You Can’t Go Home Again? And what if you can’t even go home again — sometimes — even when you never left? And have you ever had the sick feeling that the country you call home suddenly feels like it’s anything but? You thought you knew your country . . . your people. But what if you were mistaken? DID YOU change? Did it? Did they? Yep. That's where we're going this time on 3 Chords & the Truth. And . . . what about the American Dream? What about your hopes and expectations for your home — your life, your family, your place, your country? As Bruce Springsteen wrote, "Is a dream a lie if it don't come true, or is it something worse?" IN DONALD TRUMP'S Amerika, are you still feeling like you’re at home? What if your dreams are crashing down around you? We have questions this week on the Big Show. Maybe we do or we don't have answers, but we sure have a lot of music to make you think. I don’t care who you are, there’s one constant in this vale of tears: One way or another, nothing will break your heart like home. Yet home is what we always yearn for. 

It's the damnedest thing. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

The lights are out in Washington. The lights grow ever dimmer across America. Darkness has come upon our land. Screw that. Shine a light and push back the shadows of our demons and dysfunction. Shine a light. Sing our songs. Listen to the music. Screw Washington. Push back against the hatred and nativism and racism and anarchists in tailored suits. Fight the power. Sing of the light amid the darkness. That's what we try to do on this -- and every -- episode of 3 Chords & the Truth. When we're doing that, even a little show can be the Big Show. Word. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

Twas the week before Christmas, when all thru the show . . .

Musicians heads were floating, their bodies no mo'
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that some torsos soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
What? You think we want them to see disembodied heads?

And Mama in her 'kerchief, and I in my tuque,
Had just settled in and were ready to juke —‌
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the hi-fi to see what was the matter.
Away to the window, like a bat out of hell,
I grabbed my shotgun and a handful of shells.
The streetlight shown on the rain-slicked blacktop,
Revealing Jackie Gleason's head falling like a raindrop.

And not just his, but Sinatra's, too,
Joining Lena Horne's in a floating boogaloo.
Bodyless Webb Pierce yelled "3 Chords & the Truth!"

And I ran to the hi-fi -- it didn't take a sleuth.
I'd forgotten it was time for the Big Show,
And the famous floating heads were ready to go!
"Now! Frankie, now! Lena, now! Simon and Garfunkel,
"On! Frankie, on! Jackie, mind your carbuncle!
"To the top of the charts! Eschew all your clinkers!
"And we need a band -- disembodied heads got no fingers!"

This may seem strange for a Yuletide regalement,
I guess you can blame that nail-gun impalement.

Be that as it may, tell 'em from Dover to Doha,

It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

We're all amped up here on the Big Show as we come out of the big Thanksgiving turn and floor it down the straightaway all the way to Christmas. That is, if we make it through December. These days. . . . You know? Having dispensed with the preface here, allow me to attempt a summation of this week's episode of 3 Chords & the Truth in but a single sentence. It may be a run-on, of course, but still. . . . Here we go.
IT'S NOT GOOD out there as we hurtle toward what promises to be a strange Yuletide, more or less, but we're celebrating anyway because we might pull through despite everything, just so long as we can keep anyone in Washington from getting his hands on a Les Paulverizer, because that assuredly would result in the end of life on Earth as we know it.
IF THIS confuses you -- and we're sure it does -- your only recourse is to listen to the Big Show forthwith, which should allay your concerns. I just used the word "allay." Yay, Favog! It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

There's a squiggly green line separating you from a world where you'd never know there once was a San Fransisco band called The Great Society, fronted by Grace Slick before . . . you know. Before big things happened. And you'd never know, on the other side of the squiggly green line, that the big Jefferson Airplane hit "Somebody to Love" once was "Someone to Love," the B-side of The Great Society's first (and only) single back in 1966. No, you'd never know that on the far side of the squiggly green line. The squiggly green line is what 3 Chords & the Truth looks like before it gets to your ears -- and into your head. It's a good thing to be on the right side of the squiggly green line. It's a good thing to have the Big Show in your head. In your ears, too. Who knows what surprises and what musical edification lies on the good side of the squiggly green line? Well, there's only one way to find out. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

Your Mighty Favog escaped from one of the Southern -stans when he was a young man. Now he brings the best in music and information to the captive populations of his home region of the United States.

He brings young and old alike the world their governments censor. Free thought and a robust culture . . . with a beat.

This week, millions in the -stans on the American frontier will tune in to 3 Chords & the Truth for uncensored news and music -- the "in" sound from outside. Join the Big Show this week for a program of special interest to listeners in Alabamastan, "Jesus Don't Like Ugly . . . or What Don't You Get About Jailbait?"

Captive Bubbas may not be able to spell "freedom," but almost all can spell 3C&T. And that's enough to cut through the Kudzu Curtain just a little every day.

Freedom's as close as the Internet, and 'Bamastanis spell it 3C&T.

It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

You can follow the crowd, stand in line, empty your bank account and get a new iPhone X-tremely expensive. Or, you can sit in your dwelling in a toasty houserobe -- or your drawers, I really don't care -- and listen to the new 2017 iAnachronism for absolutely, positively no cost whatsoever. And it will sound just fine on your iPhone 6. But your iAnachronism -- 3 Chords & the Truth, to be technical -- will sound better if you feed your computer into your home stereo. Preferably an anachronistic one. They sound awesome. As usual, eclecticism reigns on the Big Show this week, as does freeformity. That's an anachronistic word. Listen to the show to catch the meaning, which has something to do with excellence in music programming. Is what we're saying. Also this go around, we celebrate the life and music of Fats Domino. That's all I have to say about that. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
