Your Weekend Justice #109: Kites and Crime, Kids!

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that tries to have not only less art but also more matter. It’s not for the faint of heart. Or for the faint of spleen. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

Music Tuesday: J.D. McPherson, Son House, Richard Thompson & More…

True enough…this was supposed to go up yesterday, but mad thunderstorms and a power outage pushed it off. Oh well.

If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music. Then tell you about it.

JD McPherson: Signs and Signifiers
Son House: Original Delta Blues
Richard Thompson: Dream Attic
