The Ledge 500th Episode Celebration!
By email@example.com on December 10, 2021
Almost 12 years to the day after the very first attempt at a podcast, this week markes the 500th episode! To celebrate, I let the listeners take over! The call was made on all social media platforms to suggest bands or songs that were discovered via this show, and those results are reflected in this week’s playlist. Many listeners simply submitted the songs of their choice. Others accompanied their picks with extremly complimentary emails. But a handful actually sent in audio tributes to the show! No matter how these messages were sent, they warmed the heart of this host. I’m blown away by the kind words, and I was especially happy to get some audio from Max, the voice you hear at the beginning and end of each and every show. Here’s a couple of links that were mentioned on the show: To help Max and his high school band travel to New York City, please contribute to his GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/f/maxwell-to-nyc To read Will Neville’s concert reviews: https://undilutableslangtruth.wordpress.com/ For the latest info on Gorman Bechard’s films: http://whatwerewethinkingfilms.com/ For setlists and other Ledge information: http://scotthudson.blogspot.com I would love it if every listener bought at least one record I played on either of these shows.

The Ledge #476: Happy Birthday Bobby D!
By email@example.com on May 28, 2021
Putting together a Dylan tribute show for this week was clearly a no-brainer. After all, he turned 80 years old this past Monday! Of course The Ledge would celebrate! It actually wasn’t until the day of his birthday that I decided on this theme, though, and I have to give special thanks to Lydia Loveless. To help raise money for NIVA (National Independent Venue Association), Lydia and a dozen other artists were a part of Happy Birthday Uncle Bob! A Dylan Tribute. That release is just one of many recent releases that are the focus of the first half of the show. Daniel Romano, Billy Childish (as The William Loveday Intention), Lucinda Williams, and others have full-length albums of Dylan remakes, and the second half of the show consists of some old favorites such as Paul Westerberg, Jason & The Scorchers, Mike Ness, and many others. After listening, please go purchase those tracks you enjoy! These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs. And if you buy these records directly from the artist or label, please let them know you heard these […]
