It's the same old song. Second verse, same as the first. And here we are in Coronavirusland -- right back where we started in March. In March. Apart from "We live in f***ed-up times in a f***ed-up country," I really don't know what to say. Rather, I don't know what to say that's any different from what other rational believers in science are saying right now. We here at 3 Chords & the Truth got nothin' . . . except the music. And the music is exceptionally good. One hopes it's so good that it'll make you feel a little bit better for a while. I would say "make you forget," but that's a bit of a stretch -- even for the Big Show. But that's just the same old song, isn't it? It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

How are you getting by this week in this time of disease and woe? Me, I've found that the best method for coping is . . . whatever works. A big part of "whatever works," we at the Big Show hope, is the Big Show itself. A weekly dose of good music helps a lot when you're afraid to turn on the news for fear of what fresh hell awaits. But while you're listening to the program -- listening to the finest in recorded music from the vast 3 Chords & the Truth library -- might I suggest sitting in a comfy chair with a refreshing libation. It might just be the shot in the liver you need. PERHAPS A Skyball would do the tri . . . tri . . . hic . . . trick. This classic 1960s bit of alcoholic nostalgia is sort of like a spruced-up highball, only made with vodka, lemon juice and lemonade. And I'm sure it's healthier than sitting on the stoop with a Lieutenant Dan cigar and muttering the F-word a lot. Like I said, whatever works. Of course, if you happen to be under 21 -- or if you just don't like booze -- I'm sure a nice refreshing glass of no-octane lemonade would work just fine, too. Listen to me, I was pre-med in college. Wait, I was a journalism major. Hell, what's the difference? Good music and good libations -- that will help you get through this time of pandemic and pan-idiots. And helping you get through it all is our special mission on 3 Chords & the Truth. S'alright? S'alright. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

First, the pandemic. Then, the reckoning. Hell of a spring you're having, America. Amid a double-barreled storm -- a double-barreled world of hurt -- what then are we to do? The answer is both complicated and really simple. Being a simple sort, I'll stick to the latter with this episode of 3 Chords & the Truth. Now, the envelope, please. And the answer is . . . what we can. We do what we can. That's certainly what we're doing here on the Big Show -- what we can. It involves (one hopes) not being dumb, not saying dumb things (at least not extraordinarily dumb, which seems the fashion for American society today) and playing the best music available here in the Apocalypse Bunker. MANY MIGHT know that better as "the studio." That pretty much sums up this week's show -- playing good music to soothe your soul and not saying or doing anything extraordinarily dumb. Don't worry, we'll still have plenty of the ordinarily dumb. Just ask my wife. I suppose that's all there is to be said -- he says as the smartphone and iPad keep dinging and lighting up with the latest Fresh Hell Alerts. (Would it be appropriate to change the alert tone to something more appropriate to these times . . . like an air-raid siren?) Ponder that after you rebalance yourself by listening to the show. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

When life has become a slog and the world around you is in turmoil, sometimes you just need to self-medicate . . . with music. This may or may not preclude self-medicating with other things. It's that kind of year. This week on the Big Show, we're self-medicating with a lot of hit records -- and records that, in your Mighty Favog's humble opinion, should have been hit records. Or bigger hit records. It beats crawling into a dark corner with a bottle. Which, again, may or may not preclude also crawling into a dark corner with a bottle. Because 2020. But for right now, you can try coping by listening to the hits and shoulda-been-hits on this here edition of 3 Chords & the Truth. I guess that covers it. So give it a listen and escape the suck for a while. That is all. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

Please do not adjust your set. 2020 is experiencing technical difficulties. Please stand by. (Cue the peppy, yet soothing instrumental music to accompany the "technical difficulties" slide on your screen.) Please stand by -- perhaps that ought to be the new motto of the United States as the country staggers between a pandemic, economic collapse, civil unrest and a president who manages to be deeply evil and barking mad, too. God knows "E Pluribus Unum" just isn't cutting it anymore. If you have any answers beyond "Just hold on, and do the best you can," the Big Show would like to hear them. Address your reply to 3 Chords & the Truth, Apocalypse Bunker, Omaha, by God, Nebraska, Oh-What-the-Hell-Is-the-Point-Anymore? AT A TIME when the president sets federal agents and troops upon peaceful protesters just so he can walk unbothered by the hoi polloi to a boarded-up church to stage a phony photo op with a Bible he doesn't read, just holding on and doing the best we can seems to be about all we can do right now. Just hold on. We'll do the best we can to play some good music to distract you from your aching fingers. That's about all I can tell you right now. God help us. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

Damn right, I've got the blues. Damn right, I bet you do, too. It's a blue world here in Coronavirusland, so there's only one thing for us to do on 3 Chords & the Truth. It's time to play the blues. Fortunately, if your playlist is as broad as American music, there's lots to pick from. It's hard to escape the blues in something that expansive. Rock? Blues. Jazz? Blues. The American songbook? Look beneath the surface of so much of it. Blues. Damn right, we got the blues -- right here on the Big Show. Which is perfect for when a whole country done got the blues. Trust us; the blues will cure your blues. At least a little. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

New for '20! Style goes viral! And, perhaps, shaving and lipstick become superfluous? No matter what, 3 Chords & the Truth is your dedicated follower of fashion . . . and breakout music on the hot spot of your Internet dial. And while you'd be smart -- and considerate -- to mask your face to stop the spread of the coronavirus, there's no masking the reality that good music makes hard times just a little bit better. And the forecast for the next 90 minutes of the Big Show is a marked improvement in conditions wherever you are. Now grab a drink, crank up the high-fidelity apparatus, and settle in for the musical journey. It'll be an adventure -- we guarantee it. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

You remember the old Merle Haggard song, "If We Make It Through December"? Somehow, it has become not insane to wonder if we'll make it to November. That ain't good. That can send a body into a serious funk. That can seriously harsh one's mellow. That ain't good. Seriously, what the hell are we to do? Shine a light into the virus-loaded darkness, I guess. I mean, that's what we're trying to do here on 3 Chords & the Truth -- shine a tuneful light into this darkest night. So, in that . . . light . . . this is gonna be one hell of a show. A Big Show. The price of admission? Wash your hands. And keep your distance from your neighbor. And wear a mask when you're out in public -- which you ought to be as little as possible. There's a virus goin' on. F*** the darkness. Let's shine some musical light. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

It's a fine mess we find ourselves in, this coronavirus thing, and the folks one usually looks to when extrication is called for . . . well. they're pretty much useless. If not outright existentially threatening. So. Well. Um . . . what are we supposed to do, then? Well, there has to be a better answer than one I've taken to in recent months -- sitting on the front stoop with a drink and a Lieutenant Dan cigar, muttering the F-word a lot. Let's brainstorm this, shall we? FIRST, keep calm and carry on intelligently. Do what your doctor would tell you to do. I'm reasonably sure that doesn't involve a Lieutenant Dan cigar. Hey . . . do as I say, etcetera and so on. Second . . . chill. 3 Chords & the Truth can help you with that second thing, and we'll do it by the numbers -- 33⅓, 45 and 78. And at whatever speed a compact disc spins. If music can soothe the savage breast . . . beast . . . both? . . . whatever, music can get us through this epidemiological cluster-you-know-what. Music can mellow us out and calm us the you-know-what down. Lucky for you, the Big Show is just a click (two at the most) away. So, let us all center ourselves for the long slog -- by the numbers. 33⅓. 45. 78. And at whatever speed a compact disc spins. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
