If you remember the romance of radio road trips, or if you’re too young for all that and just wish your iPod could introduce you to exciting new music and let you eavesdrop on the kinds of conversations that happen among artists at late-night diners after gigs, Country Fried Rock is for you. If your job is to make your radio station sound interesting, or if you’re just a fan of great music, come on in. You can smell the soul in the air as the door closes behind you and your mouth begins to water. Everything is better when it’s country fried, right?

What ultimately became this upbeat, pop influenced rock record demonstrates Vaden’s expertise.||10/8/2016||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanPREMIERE Jon Latham “Lifers”||Jon Latham‘s pals are lifers. Capturing the heart of why Country Fried Rock exists, Lifers highlights songwriters who create because they must — driven to write, driving in vans. In this song premiere of the title track,||9/18/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanAllen Thompson #1608||Allen Thompson Band‘s new album, Brace Yourself, is still kept under top-secret guard, but the stories leading to the title seem surreal.

It's just OK
Could be a lot better. I start out the podcast not knowing some of the artists or their style then listen to them tell me how they got into music. Would be nice if you started the podcast with one of their songs then went into interview, that way I could get a better feeling of the artists music. Otherwise the interviews are good. Listen to the guys on WNCW interview a bluegrass artist, they have the format you need.
