I assure you, there is a point to this week's show.

I'm just not sure what it is, exactly.

This latest 3 Chords & the Truth is good and entertaining and all that, it's just that I intended it to have a point . . . but that point is kind of slow to emerge.

I tell you what -- it's my birthday on Friday, and I'm not exactly in the mood to contemplate. That will just get you in trouble at times like this.

So, I tell you what . . . if you find the point to the Big Show (and there is one), you let me know. I have an idea about a point, which I clue you in on during the show, but it's not like it's definitive or anything.

Welp . . . that's about all I got. Have a good one.

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

This week on the Big Show, we take a chill pill.

We relax.

Mellow out.

It's going to be great.

And that, in a nutshell, is the whole deal with this week's episode of 3 Chords & the Truth. It's all about relaxation . . . and letting the music wash over you with its warmth and soothing powers.

That's pretty much it.

It's the relaxation edition of the Big Show. Enjoy.

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

Here! Now! The new 3 Chords & the Truth Stereo Theatre!

Actually, it's a lot like the old 3 Chords & the Truth Stereo Theatre, only Here! Now! and New!

And again, with million-dollar stereophonic sound at a price within everyone's reach -- free -- you are there without ever leaving the comforts of home. Or wherever.

That's the magic of the Big Show.

So, this week on the program -- er, the Stereo Theatre -- we were wondering whether you were wondering what the deal is with America's only homegrown genre of popular music. That would be jazz, in case you were drawing a blank there.

WELL, you're going to learn all about the deal with jazz . . . and about the special sauce that gave us the Great American Songbook, especially the sounds that made Gershwin masterpieces Gershwin masterpieces and distinguished them from the Dixieland jazz that made its way from New Orleans to Chicago, and then to New York.

You'll also hear why that's important today. Especially today.

Yeah, you'll want to stay tuned for that.

So, I guess that's all there is to say about that. At least without giving away the whole show -- the Big Show.

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

'Round and 'round we go, where the Big Show stops, nobody knows.

Or . . . who is Spencer, and why should we give him gifts at the mall?

Is this making any sense? Of course it isn't. We don't do sense in this country anymore -- there is no sense! Nothing makes sense.

We're not even trying to be outrageous or witty or anything on 3 Chords & the Truth anymore. Why? Because we can't make this stuff up anymore. We cannot compete with Washington, D.C., and the 24-hour news cycle.

And, come to think of it, Spencer can buy his own damned gifts.

TODAY on the Big Show, we have some perfectly good guitars, two of everything and a whole big bunch of hurt. All in all, it sounds pretty decent.

That's the best we can do. We have been outstripped by events.

We got a record player, some records, a CD player, some CDs and a computer and other audio implements of destruction. That will have to do. So listen up, Buster, and listen up good.

If you don't, I will tweet nasty things about you during my 3 a.m. constitutional. LAME!

Well, it seems as if I may have written enough, so I'm out of here.

IT'S 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

And now, courtesy of 3 Chords & the Truth, a word about high fidelity:

Good.

And so is the freeform format of the Big Show. Not much more to be said.

Except this . . . listen. It's the tastiest music on the Internets.

That's all. C'est tout.

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

We can take only so much of this crap at one time.

So we take a rest. We restore ourselves and our souls.

3 Chords & the Truth does this with music, because everything is better with music. And the music on this restorative episode of the Big Show is especially good -- both in and of itself . . . and for your soul.

Really . . . we live in interesting times, in the Chinese-curse sense of interesting times. We have to take care of ourselves.

Consider this edition of the podcast just that.

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

Uncle Sam wants you . . . to live as an American.

Not a Russian.

Not an angry German.

Not a Serb.

Not a Klansman.

Not an "alt" anything.

The alt stops here on 3 Chords & the Truth. The revolution starts now.

Welcome to the Zeitgeist Edition of the Big Show. There will be lots of good music to listen to -- and to chew on -- this week. Believe me.

Just remember one simple thing: Be more American. Be less a**hole.

That's about it.

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

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor Russian jammers and hackers stays this program from the musical completion of its appointed time slot.

And the Big Show has a special inauguration edition for you this week -- a song-filled celebration of the 45th and last president of these formerly United States. It wasn't easy bringing the music to you.

Malevolent forces tried to make that not occur.

They failed.

OUR NEW administration will be commemorated during this momentous week. Good and hard.

I think you'll enjoy the spectacle.

I think others . . . not so much.

So sit back and relax with a stiff drink for the next 95 minutes, and let the 3 Chords & the Truth music mix surround you like a wall. A big, beautiful wall. The best wall . . . of sound.

Who knows who'll pay for it? Who cares? It won't be you, that's the important thing.

SEE MY beautiful sentences here? They're the best sentences, epic sentences. Believe me, they're great. Almost as great as my music this week. So listen up, and listen good . . . to the Big Show.

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

The Big Show is back, and we're casting our fate to the wind.

That's not nothing -- the wind has been pretty damned ill lately. And so has your Mighty Favog.

I call it the Crud, and it seems everybody around Omaha, by God, Nebraska has had it this winter. It would seem that I may have gotten it worse than most -- about a month of varying degrees of sickness, 10 days of antibiotics and the worst laryngitis I've ever encountered.

Even now, my voice probably is only 80 percent, but that's good enough, I reckon, for 3 Chords & the Truth to be back on the Internets. So here it is.

Thank God.

I do believe we're picking up where we left off in the good -- and eclectic -- music department. On the other hand, the proof is in the listening, and the Big Show is ripe for listening after all this time away from the microphone.

Here's hoping that you're as eager to see what 3 Chords & the Truth is up to in the new year as I was eager to be up to something podcast-y in 2017.

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

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
