Glad to have the new Two Cow Garage release on this week's Episode, walking the line between bombast and nuance. Their stuff has always been just a bit over the line for an early morning show, but I appreciate their heart. Speaking of which, FoCo's Drag the River has released the bare bones demo versions of their 2011 CD tracks, showing more maturity and songcraft than ever before.

On a completely unrelated front, and undiscovered Johnny Cash and Ray Charles track, recorded more than a decade ago, has surfaced. A soulful, heartfelt take on Kris Kristofferson's classic "Why Me Lord."
