THURSDAY MORNING MIX
September 10, 2009
Scott Foley


Nice to welcome in-studio guests this morning; Texas Renegade (from Texas ...) stopped by to plug their Aggie Theatre show. They proved to be gregarious and mic-friendly, and their visit piqued my interest in their forthcoming new CD.

I've been a Malcolm Holcombe fan for several years. One day recently, while driving home from work, I decided Disney should develop an animated, mud-sucking catfish character, to be voiced by Malcolm. Makes Tom Waits sound like a choirboy. For the Mission Baby features a full-band sound, which compliments Holcombe's songs nicely.
