He Said, She Said Holiday 12/18

Good evening!

Hope this finds you warm and relaxed, holiday errands complete for the day.

I have a confession to make. I love Christmas music. I know, I know, everyone has a Christmas album and it can get redundant at best. Lucky for you, I have a ton 0f  it and have dedicated my listening time for the last two weeks sorting through it for you.

Below is something that you WON”T hear on tonight’s show, but Byron was kind enough to share it with me, so I thought I’d share with you. It is amazing and beautiful and strange.

He Said She Said Slide Guitar Special Vol II (11/13/10)

Good evening! Those of you who know me well are aware of what slide guitar does to me. Tonight I’m celebrating not an instrument per se, but a musical accessory, a method of making a most delicious sound by sliding a solid object down  steel strings.  Slides are made from many things. Some people refer to it as bottle neck guitar, from the old habit of using a broken beer bottle as a slide. Modern folks are fond of pretty molded glass slides, I see those often, but many things will work. I have an old photo of a friend of mine, playing her guitar with a plastic vibrating novelty toy. Smokin’

We’ll hear dobro, lap steel, pedal steel, guit-steel and resonator guitars tonight. From sad bastard, cry  in your beer tunes to Bob Log III growling at us through his bubble helmet. I hope you enjoy!

Hello! He Said She Said will be covered tonight by DJ Mo and guest Dave X. I hate to miss one of my Saturday nights, but I’ll be getting my live music fix out at Riverside Park in Murphy for a little Pokey LaFarge and Neighborhood Co-Op picnicking!
