I feel like the Big Show is a Bob Seger thing . . . still the same. Forget that. We actually don't have any Bob Seger on the show this week. We are, however, still the same -- in that we're rarely the same week to week. Which, conversely, makes 3 Chords & the Truth still the same in programmatic non-sameness. Or something like that. I am starting to not make sense. Which might make me president of the United States, and no one wants that. Then again, nobody wants the present president of the United States, either. So I'll merely say that this current edition of the Big Show is the same as every other in its eclecticism and high quality. And your host is what he is. That is all. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

There was a hurricane. And, like, it moved north, you know, and wasn't. . . . Not headed anywhere near Alabama. But then the president tweeted. And. . . . Then . . . then . . . he was wrong. But truth is a casualty when he's wrong and reality must be bent to make lies into something like the truth in this crazy, mixed-up land. I swear to God, what's a poor music show to do in the middle of a loony bin? I'm talking about 3 Chords & the Truth here. PITY THE Big Show that just wants to have fun when an apocalypse calls. No, not the Apocalypse, just an apocalypse. But Donald Trump's trying hard, you know? So tune in for 3 Chords & the Truth in full underground, rebel radio station mode. Because someone has to tell folks they're not the ones who's crazy. Oh . . . the music's damn good, too. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

We all, I think, had a close call with apocalyptic crazy last week, and it's all right. For now. I think. The sun has continued to rise, and it appears we will make it to September. I think. That is, hurricanes and Washington willing. Anyway, we're counting our being here to do yet another installment of 3 Chords & the Truth as a victory, which we're celebrating in the usual manner -- with really great music, eclectically presented. IT'S THE BEST music. Unbelievably beautiful music. You would not believe how beautiful the music is on this week's edition of the Big Show. And that's no fake news. Or is it Fake News? The new rules for capitalization still kinda throw me. You know? That said. . . . It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

The lunatic tweets like an ass. The lunatic speaks out his ass Remembering blame and crazy claims and gaffes Got to keep the loonies on the path The lunatic has cast a pall The lunatics have so much gall TV news keeps his crazy rants in our ears And every day the lunatic spews more And the crazy train is off the rusted tracks again And if this is the end of the damn line And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too I'll see you here on 3 Chords & the Truth It's the Big Show, y'all. Let's be here while we can. Aloha.

What is the Big Show? The program, 3 Chords & the Truth, is basically an internet-enabled, really eclectic, Favogian frickin' music box. Like a radio. I assume you're listening on something that roughly approximates a box. And that there's music coming out of it. Voila! Music box. And in the case of the Big Show, it's a good music box. Or a box filled with good music. However you'd like to phrase it. It's certainly a box radiating eclectic music, carefully curated. I'm told I should use phrases like "carefully curated." I don't know why. We live in an age of branding, I suppose. That's fine, as far as it goes, but it doesn't equal doing. And thoughtfully selected and placed music is what we just frickin' do on 3 Chords & the Truth. Heat up that iron in a fire and brand something with it, Cowboy. Hell, I don't even know where I'm going with this. Hell, the veterinarian didn't know where I was going with it when I asked him whether the organizers were giving out Who's a GOOD Boy? awards at his 30-year vet-school reunion this summer. AND, by the way, Belle the Dog is lying on the back of the couch watching Elmo on PBS Kids. I don't know why. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

Did you know there may be a race of men who live in the trees? WHOA! That's just one of the shocking developments you'll hear on this week's edition of 3 Chords & the Truth. In fact, this episode of the show is chock full of surprises, unexpected endings and edge-of-your-seat musical moments. IT'S TRUE! So if you don't want to miss out on one WHOA! moment after another, DON'T TOUCH THAT DIAL!!! Even if your podcast-listening device doesn't actually have a dial. Just do what we say, and everybody gets good music and somewhat-witty repartée. And it's right here on the Big Show. You betcha. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

Did your old man ever ominously warn you about giving him any static? Mine did. It usually didn't work. I gave him static. Well, pally, today we live in a world with nothin' but static. Static here, static there, static static static everywhere. This week on 3 Chords & the Truth, I seek to make static amends by proclaiming this here program a static-free zone. There will be no static here, only good music. And from the Great Beyond, Daddy now is saying "So NOW you decide to stop being an asshole." To that, I only can say "Better late than never, Pop. Better late than never." Enjoy your static-free edition of the Big Show. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

"One of these days, Alice! Pow! Straight to the moon!" One of these days came 50 years ago today. Pow! We went straight to the moon. Oddly enough, it wasn't Ralph Kramden's fist that got us there. No, it was three brave astronauts who climbed atop a gigantic Saturn V rocket four days before, blasted off into the heavens and took the whole damned planet with them for a lunar joyride. July 20, 1969. It was a Sunday. I was 8 years old -- almost 8 and a half. Halves are very important when you're 8. That day -- POW! -- straight to the moon. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins got there with Apollo 11. I suspect they kinda knew that I (and a few billion others) had hitched a ride on their rocket ship. This episode of the Big Show has the moon on its mind, a way to remember the greatest thing mankind has done and give thanks to the three men who did it . . . and all the thousands of men and women who got them there. In fact, this week's 3 Chords & the Truth doesn't have a single song that isn't a moon song. And they're all good. Fittingly good for an Apollo 11 anniversary program. PUTTING THIS particular edition together put me, in a very real way, back in time. Back in our living room at 10645 Darryl Dr. in Baton Rouge. Back in front of the black-and-white, 21-inch Magnavox television tuned in to CBS and Walter Cronkite. Back to when I was an elementary-school spaceaholic, the one with all the Gemini-mission stickers all over the dresser mirror in my bedroom. The 1960s were fraught times, like our own today. But a big difference was hope. We had hope. We knew we were better than our struggles and our national squabbles and missteps, and we had hope that, someday, we would overcome. Someday. We have yet to overcome and, indeed, we're backsliding. Today, we have a lot more Trump than we have hope. BUT LOOKING BACK at Apollo 11 and those first glorious steps on a strange world, we know what the better angels of our human nature look like. And when we look up into a moonlit sky, we know that for those better angels, the sky is the limit. And in an age seemingly bereft of heroes, we only have to look back within the lifetime of your broken-down old radio guy here to see a whole big bunch of them -- heroes who touched the moon, if not the stars. For that, we give musical thanks. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

Embrace the chill. 3 Chords & the Truth, you see, is cooler than average. Way cooler than average. Cool music, cool concept, cool production values . . . and a moderately acceptable host. That works out, when you do the math, to cooler than average. If you grade on a curve -- that is, factor in what you hear on the radio in most locales -- the Big Show is way cooler than average. That's what I'm sayin'. And that's what you'll hear, right here on this here program. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

How do you put the Big Show together every week? One patch at a time. You see, 3 Chords & the Truth is like a patchwork quilt. It has a bunch of musical scraps to it, and to the untrained eye, they look like pretty damned random scraps. To the untrained ear, it sounds like nothing sensible will come out of this mishmash. Kind of how a box of discarded scraps looks like . . . a box of discarded scraps. Until you put them together into a beautiful quilt. Until you take the disorder and make it into order -- into a meaningful theme. Until you create functional art out of random disorder. That's exactly what's going on with the Big Show each and every week. We make a musical whole out of random songs and wildly diverse records. It's a patchwork. IT'S A SEEMING MESS until you add something that's in rare supply on the radio these days -- a vision. I guess that's why the program's not on the radio. You need vision . . . and a bit of patience to see how things are going to turn out. How the scraps get transformed into a whole. Patchwork. That's the ticket to quality radio, even if it's just on the Internet. Now let's you and me dig into that box of bits and pieces and see what we can make out of it. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
