3. Alejandro Escovedo "Half A Man"
22 min
Alejandro Escovedo is almost surely the only artist who has shared bills with both Willie Nelson and the Sex Pistols. On this episode, the singer-songwriter—who was a major figure in the West Coast punk scene of the seventies and rode herd over the Americana movement in the nineties—talks about Willie’s 1963 single “Half a Man.” It’s a song that peaked at number 25 on the country charts back then, and it makes Alejandro think of his father, ghost stories, old pot dealers, and the left-field cowpunk music video that first put him on Willie’s radar. Songs from this and other episodes from One By Willie are featured on Apple Music: https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/one-by-willie-a-texas-monthly-podcast/pl.u-b3b8VdgFKWje4Wv

Dick's Picks Vol. 18 — 02/03-05/78, Madison & Milwaukee, WI / Cedar Falls, IA
In this week’s episode we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 18, a midwestern compilation from February 3, 1978 at the Dane County Coliseum in Madison, Wisconsin, February 4, 1978 at the Milwaukee Auditorium in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and February 5, 1978, at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Just six weeks on from the magical year of 1977, we find The Dead fusing their disco-dead sound with expert & lengthy jams, giving the run a mixed feeling of 1973 meeting 1977. Pieced together like a standard Set I for the era with a double-pack of Set II jam vehicles, this is a joyous compilation that gives one a true sense of what The Grateful Dead were up to in the Winter of 1978. Disc One opens with the back-to-back combo of “Bertha” and “Good Lovin’” before we dive into a seasonally appropriate “Cold Rain & Snow.” Elsewhere, “Deal” shines in the lively rock of late-70’s Dead. Disc Two is a masterpiece as the late-70’s combo of “Estimated Prophet> Eyes Of The World” before “Playin’ In The Band” jams for nearly 25min in a fusion of the late-70’s groove & early-70’s psychedilia. From there we hear the first “The Wheel” of the Dick’s Picks series before returning to “Playin’.” Disc Three provides a bonus Set II to the overall show, with a scorching “Scarlet -> Fire” that concludes with a jam heavy “Truckin’ -> Drums -> Other One> Wharf Rat.” All the flavors of Winter/Spring 1978 are represented here in a compilation that matches Dick’s Picks 4, 12 and 14 for its mastery of encapsulating an era. 36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media.

Episode #247 - Stephanie Logan Hall (Puffin)
Another really full show this week, with four segments. First up, there is a recently minted thru-hiker, Stephanie Logan Hall, who completed her SOBO hike on November 19. I was particularly keen to hear from her and her early impressions–which will doubtless change with time–of the trail and her adventure. Those of you who regularly listen to the show will know how impressed I am by these young women who take on the trail. It is clear to me that the world is in safer hands as they become our leaders for tomorrow. I'm afraid it's time for us old fat white guys to step aside!! You can reach out to Stephanie through her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000442855977 Stephen Eren, Trail Facilities Manager with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, shares his views on Life on a Trail Crew. As he said that he would in our conversation, Stephen has provided us with plenty of links to explore the possibilities of working on the trail.

Finally today, Larry Luxenburg's Walking the Appalachian Trail looks back at the origins of the trail, and the people who made it happen.
