Renewed Interest in Music

I listen almost ex­clu­sive­ly to talk radio and music to which I've danced. Of course there is the occasional southern rock band, or novelty record. Okay, lots of novelty records...but I digress.

WSKY, 97.3 FM, is a local News/Talk station in Gainesville, FL. Some of the local jocks had been using tunes by The Right Brothers as bumper music. Well one of them managed to get the the whole band (both of them) as guests on an afternoon show. They're hilarious! In particular, I like their song, "What About the Issues?" (free download)

They composed this song after getting several thousand emails, of which only two were interested in having an actual persuasive discussion -- the rest were just as you might expect from the title. Their music seems to be varied in style: I would describe some of it as metal and some as country (go figure). These guys appear to be real musicians -- not syn­the­siz­er pilots. They lyrics are what you might expect if Rush had had Neal Boortz writing their songs instead of Neil Pert -- well, if Boortz had been introduced to them before Lib­er­tar­i­an­ism had taken over his entire brain.

Come to think of it, I'd like to hear a col­lab­o­ra­tion by those two...
