We live in a world where people like to spoon feed you both kinds of music. You know, country and western. Rap and hip-hop. Classic rock and classic hits. Classical and orchestral. Here at 3 Chords & the Truth, we play one kind of music -- good. The bad, we don't mess with. So, in the course of one show -- like this week's -- you're apt to hear The Young Rascals followed by Leonard Cohen. Mama Cass followed by Sarah Vaughan. Charlie Byrd followed by Squeeze. Andy Williams followed by Nazareth. I'm pretty proud of Andy Williams followed by Nazareth. It all works. It all expands your mind and your horizons. It all makes up the rich musical gumbo you know as the Big Show. Screw radio homogeneity, and screw the programmers and corporate suits who sell you short on an unending basis. We don't roll like that. We're 3 Chords & the Truth, dammit. Be there. Aloha.

Style and substance -- the Big Show has both. Always has. Always will. In radio today, I'm not sure what's the rarer thing, style or substance. Some stations and programs have some degree of style. Others -- not a bunch -- have substance. Few have both. Actually, having both is a good way to not be on the radio. Having both, come to think of it, is a good way to be totally screwed in lots of ways in our culture today. Such are the times in which we live. The blessing and the curse of 3 Chords & the Truth is that it's the program that doesn't give a damn. Bad news: This sort of thing is a horrible way to make any money. Good news: We've no money to lose from not being dumb-ass enough, so you're gonna hear some wild sh . . . stuff on this here little podcast. (Gotta watch the language. "Style," don't you know.) Style and substance. Boy is that happening on the Big Show this week. And, boy, do you need to be listening to the Big Show this week. Really, aren't we all tired of the dumb and the artless? Time for a change. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

It's late. And I'm afraid we have no idea how late it is . . . says someone who is a member of a group of tens upon tens upon tens upon tens of millions of Americans just deemed "human scum" by the president of the United States of America. Just because we happen to oppose the mean-spirited, disastrous misgovernance of said president and his band of craven partisan enablers. The words "human scum" made it possible to kill 6 million Jews. Made it possible for Hutus to slaughter between half a million and a million Tutsis in Rwanda. Allowed the Turks to butcher about 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire during and after World War I. "HUMAN SCUM" on American lips gave permission for Southerners to enslave millions of blacks and egged them on as they declared war on their northern brethren in defense of the indefensible. Nearly 700,000 Americans were dead by the time the carnage played itself out in 1865. This edition of 3 Chords & the Truth is predicated upon the lateness of the hour in these United States. This edition of the Big Show also harbors a musical prayer that it's not too late. Sorry to get all serious on you but, alas, these are serious times. But at least we work plenty enough fun and tuneful enjoyment around the seriousness . . . in my humble opinion. But don't take my word for it; I'm just "human scum." Why don't you just listen for yourself instead? It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

Fall just fell, the heat is running, the coffee's on . . . a great time for you to pop in and say "Hello in there!" Or maybe the Big Show will just drop by your place to say hello. Either way is fine. Well, while we're saying hello, we just as well have some pumpkin spice stuff -- coffee, treats, booze, air freshener, whatever. Apparently it's required. And we at 3 Chords & the Truth do what's expected of us. Uh . . . once we did. I think. Anyway, say howdy, grab some kind of pumpkin stuff and settle in for a bunch of really good music. As is our custom. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

We're sittin' in the bunker, watching the world go by DUCK! It's that kind of world these days, and 3 Chords & the Truth is here to help you cope with it. Good music helps with everything. When you have a president who, in just one day, called on the Chinese communists to investigate the former vice president of the United States -- a potential electoral opponent of said president -- and then run a network television commercial accusing congressional Democrats of plotting a coup against him . . . well, we need all the help we can get. And that was just a couple of days after he quoted (in a tweet, of course) a right-wing preacher who said there'd be civil war to pay if the Democrats impeached him. Listen to the music, folks. Listen to the music. Listen to the good music and soak in the good cheer -- we're not that far away from killing one another. Like I said, hold on to the good music . . . and the better angels of your nature. We need all the help we can get. The Big Show is fun, yes. It's musically enlightening. It's, on its better days, informative without boring the crap out of you or sounding like a college lecture. (A not good one, that is.) But this here little music program is as serious as a heart attack, too. 3 Chords & the Truth also is, one hopes, a reminder that we're better than the worse of the headlines on the evening news. That we're better than our politics. That we're better than the dysfunctional man-child in Washington who keeps trying to drag us down into the muck -- to pit American brother against American brother, and American sister against American sister. To pit America against the rest of the world. Call the show not just "music for the people," but also "music for we the people." Love your brother and listen to the damn music. Please? 'Cause no one's listening to anything if we've all done one another in. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

The Now Sound? This week, not so much. The newest selection is from 21 years ago. Old happens. No, this edition is the "then sound," with music from wildly varying genres and several different "thens." Frankly, I like it that way. Increasingly, "now" is not something to which a sane man wishes to aspire. "Now," we're at one another's throats. We as an American nation . . . aren't. We are as divided as we've been since Vietnam, and maybe since Fort Sumter. "Now," we are dry kindling, and we have a president splashing gasoline around and lighting matches. To "now" -- especially at the end of this particular Week of Pending Impeachment and Ongoing Denial and Excuse-Making -- 3 Chords & the Truth says "F*** that s***." Pardon my pessimism and rejection of "now" this week. I came down with a nasty cold amid recording this week's edition of the Big Show, and I may have just had a toddy with orange juice, lemon juice, honey, Tabasco sauce . . . and three shots of grocery store bourbon. If I can't get well soon, at least I won't care. But you have to endure my dark bluntness amid the damned fine music. Which definitely isn't "now." It's from "then," when folks hated each other a bit less and hoped for the future a bit more. Good night and good luck. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

This week, 3 Chords & the Truth wafts across the aether, which has much more class and aesthetic value than the oh-so-pedestrian "ether," into your ears and your very soul. We become one with the magic of the night . . . the wonder of the music. The Big Show defies the insanity surrounding us with beauty, joy, eclecticism and some small measure of intelligence. This week, as every week, our humble little program stands as a sign of contradiction to the stupidity that seeks to engulf us. There is a fungus among us. You know what I mean. Screw that; listen to this. The music of 3 Chords & the Truth surfs the aetherial waves. It inhabits the mystery beyond the last golden rays of sunshine. It defies conformity and convention. Tune in for an eclectic happening, curated by your Mighty Favog. It's here, in the night . . . in the aether. Or something. It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

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.
