Because someday I'll be old -- and someday is today -- there's only one thing to do. I'll put on a double-knit polyester shirt. With a wiiiiiiiiiide collar. I'll put on a too-tight pair of bell-bottom blue jeans (and these days, all my jeans are too tight anyway). I'll scare up a gold chain or three as I get ready for this edition of 3 Chords & the Truth. I'LL ATTEMPT to hide my bald spot. Then I'll attempt to avoid fast convertibles, speedboats or going outside on windy days. Then I'll put on a Donna Summer record, talk about getting down, try to engage you in a rap session, attempt a dance move no one over 40 should even think about, much less do . . . and then I'll proclaim everything groovy. And I'll think kind thoughts about you, my people, for you loyal listeners of the Big Show are righteous dudes . . . and dudettes. This edition of the program, you see, is Tragically Hip. If you think you can boogie down in Funkytown, maybe you can be Tragically Hip, too. Or if that's not your bag, man, you can just sit over there with all the freaks and be dismissive of it all. It's a free country, man. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

Crank it up! Ish. Sorry, but this week on the Big Show, I don't feel like being a fanatic about it. So instead of turning the show up to 12, I'm settling in at just about 9 and a half. That said, 3 Chords & the Truth is as worth a listen as it is every week. Really worth a listen. You'll be amazed! You'll be entertained! You'll be eclecticized! And you might even be edified! Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera and so on. Ish. Just listen, OK? And tell everybody you know . . . or don't know. Ish. It's 3 Chords & the Truth y'all. Be there. Aloha.

The Doctor is dead. Long live the Doctor. This week on 3 Chords & the Truth, we'll be night trippin' in honor of Dr. John, the Night Tripper. If you ask me, that's absotively mos' scocious. An' dat's all I got to say about dem tunes. Y'all just listen to the Big Show, and then say hey to yo' mama and them. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

You're going to hear some things on the Big Show. Rest assured, there's nothing wrong with your smartphone, computer, Internet radio, tablet or hi-fi apparatus. No, it's us. I mean that in a good way. You see, 3 Chords & the Truth is built to surprise, shock and stun. I mean that in a good way. SO, WHEN your mind gets blown -- as it is likely to be at least once during this edition (actually, every edition) of the Big Show -- you're not losing your mind, and there's not a solitary thing wrong with your preferred means of accessing podcasts. It's not you; it's us. I mean that in the absolute best way. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

The Big Show is not your average music program. That's because you're not your average listener. You're part of the Smart Set, and you deserve smart sets. And that you get every week on 3 Chords & the Truth. This week is no exception. Aannnnnd . . . apparently I'm supposed to say more here, even when that seems so very unnecessary. Well . . . um . . . so . . . I . . . . Nope, I got nothin'. Everything that needs to be said, I have said. So, then. All that's left is this: It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

Call me Dacron. Dacron. Dacron Polyester. The Big Show this week is in a Dacron state of mind. Very double-knit. Give me some Boone's Farm, and I might get triple-knit to the wind. That's pretty much where your Mighty Favog -- and 3 Chords & the Truth -- happen to be this week. Stuck in the 1970s. Actually, in retrospect, that's not such an awful place to be. Especially musically. HERE'S THE thing: It occurred to me the other day that next week, specifically May 23, marks the 40th anniversary of my graduation from Baton Rouge Magnet High School. And as you'll be able to tell from the show, my mind is still 18. My body, not so much. But, damn, the music is so good. Thank you Young Favog. You're quite welcome, Old Fart Favog. Now cue the nostalgia . . . along with the usual eclecticism. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

The Big Show is an unapologetic blot on the face of mindless musical conformity. Do now what you will with that. I don't care. 3 Chords & the Truth is all about the music, exquisite taste and creative programming . . . not dumb preconceptions from the Usual Suspects. And boy, howdy, is this edition of the program an example of that. You betcha, pally. That is all. My throat hurts, and my typing fingers are sympathizing. It's . . . well, you know what it is. Be there. Aloha.

This edition of 3 Chords & the Truth is brought to you by a 60-something-year-old RCA KN-1A pressure microphone . . . and the croaking, hacking crud. Trust me, the music on this week's edition of the Big Show sounds better than I do. It ain't even close because, of course, the music on the program always sounds great. And a host who sounds like he's 85 going on eternity at least should benefit from the vintage "golden age of radio" warmth of a cool, old microphone. Yes, it all started at a 20-watt FM station in Baton Rouge, La. . . . I KNOW, I know. Knock it off, Ted Baxter! And stop the radio-gear geekery while you're at it. Message heard. Now about the music. . . . Well, we have a little of everything on this 3 Chords & the Truth, spanning much of the 20th and a little of the 21st centuries. That includes a jazz band of future legends led by a dude playing a comb. We also get our tie dye on, then jam with the Night Tripper a bit later on the show. And we got 78s. More than our share of 78s. And that's about it. I need to go hack up a lung now. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

If you're asking me what the hell I mean about "chasing electrons under the covers," you're asking the wrong sleep-deprived guy. You have your electrons, and you have your covers. There you go. There may be chasing involved, though I'm unsure how you find and catch the exact ones you're seeking. Thus, my friend, is the central mystery of 3 Chords & the Truth, where playing great music means never having to say . . . things that make any damned sense. We do, however, have a set of mighty fine cover songs on the program this week, which is as close as we come to being comprehensible right now. And I have to tell you, there is nothing -- nothing -- more 1972 than Steve Lawrence covering Bobby Sherman . . . or Cass Elliott if that's how one prefers to roll. Are we there yet? Well, we are now. It's the Big Show, pally. Be there. Aloha.

My hobby is dead people's music. OK, maybe not all of them are dead. Some just have moved into nursing homes or senior apartments. And, to be fair, some of the music I fixate upon probably was their kids', left decades ago at Mom and Dad's place. But what we're talking about today definitely was Mom and Dad's music . . . which, alas, they couldn't take with them. Wherever. A fair amount of what you hear on 3 Chords & the Truth falls into that category -- especially on this episode. After all, when there's only two kinds of music in the world -- good and bad, and the bad, you don't mess with -- you tend to mix and match. A lot. BUT GRANDPA'S LOSS is your gain on the Big Show. My parents' generation, as it turns out, had much better taste than I gave it credit for four decades ago. Once again, the old folks' have the last laugh, even if it might be from the Great Beyond. I've been grabbing music -- much of it long out of print -- at estate sales for a long time now. At first, the main attraction of the "grown-up music" from back when I wasn't yet one was one of sheer irony. It was a hoot. Turning the tables on oneself, and one's misspent youth, for kicks and giggles. The other attraction of "the velvet sounds" was that, back in the day, it was actually owned by grown-ups. Grown-ups took care of their records, generally. Their kids . . . my generation . . . didn't, due to being teenagers, who are well-known idiots. (I have long, very personal experience with this from four decades and change ago.) Thus, when I find "my" music at estate sales, good luck finding good rock LPs and 45s that haven't been beat to hell. So you grab Mom and Dad's stuff that hasn't. AND THE funny thing is, well, it's not bad. Actually, it's damned good. The "elevator music" of one's youth, it seems, has been sullied by both your youthful prejudice and its (shall we say) leaden presentation on the radio back in the day. Let's just say some of those easy-listening FM stations may have developed rigor mortis decades before their listeners did. That was a damn shame. So here we go on this edition of the Big Show, which once again sees us in something of a mood. We're mixing and matching and re-contextualizing that at which we scoffed, snot-nosed punks that we used to be. Now sit back, tune in, turn on and open your musical mind. And if you can't manage to do that . . . get the hell off my lawn. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
