The Jukebox Graduate (Episode 13): Grateful Ted


Dave Rayburn, Ted Russell Kamp, Eugene Edwards

In Episode 13 of The Jukebox Graduate, the lucky lads welcome Ted Russell Kamp to their show. Ted and Eugene go back many years and they comb through old memories. After discussing Bruce Springsteen’s new release news and Dave’s Record Store Day escapades, the discussion turns to Ted’s story of figuring out where he wanted music to take him and how he made the connections that took him on the road. He also discusses the fine points of co-writing, producing records for other artists and the work ethic that has helped him make numerous solo albums. Then Ted lets Eugene sit in on a live in-studio performance of one of the songs from his new album Walkin’ Shoes.

The Jukebox Graduate (Episode 12): Heartbreaker, Indeed


Brad Sample

In episode 12 of The Jukebox Graduate, Dave and Eugene run through the news of the first couple of months of the year. The prattling pair briefly go over Dave’s trip to NAMM. Eugene complains about the film Bohemian Rhapsody and that begets a discussion about Rock ‘n’ Roll and movies, and the glory of The Monkees. Then, they interview Brad Sample and talk about his upcoming album, Rhinestones and Broken Bones. Brad had a hiccup releasing his album and that leads us to the recent news about Ryan Adams. The age old art-versus-artist discussion ensues and... well the guys just don’t have the answer. And finally we hear about the new music that is flipping the Graduates’ lids.

Throughout the show we hear from Queen, The Monkees, The Cactus Blossoms, Ted Russell Kamp, Brad Sample, Ryan Adams, Phoebe Bridgers, Pedro the Lion, Gary Clark Jr. and The Kinks.

Hello Darkness, My Old Friend (A Jukebox Graduate "Side Pod")




ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK OF EYE-ROLL! In this special “side pod” episode of The Jukebox Graduate, Dave and Eugene dive into the abyss of 1978’s Darkness On the Edge of Town album and tour by Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band.

Upon the 40th anniversary of that annus mirabilis the Goons of Tunes talk about what it means to them to this day. The illicit bootleg tapes, the class consciousness of the material, the never-to-be-heard-again guitar solos, the soul-baring stories, the legend building of a glorified bar band and the annoying cultishness of your hosts are all explored.

    

Too obscure to be a regular podcast....and too navel-gazing to be unposted, this episode is a dark look at the two men that make The Jukebox Graduate and the 40 year-old album/tour that helped make them.

     

In between episodes, be sure to catch Eugene on tour with Dwight Yoakam at a venue near you! Also, head over to Discussions Magazine to read Dave's recent interview with Springsteen fan Margo Timmins of Cowboy Junkies.

Episode 8 of The Jukebox Graduate brings the blabby boys to The Sharktank in Los Angeles for a very special in-studio session with Bloodshot Records recording artist Ruby Boots. Things kick off with a quick recap of Eugene's tales from the road, Dave's Record Store Day triumphs, as well as the latest happenings in the world of Spın̈al Tap bassist Derek Smalls.

We quickly learn about her beginnings in Perth, Australia, her journey to Nashville, and how the new record came to be. Finally, things wouldn't be complete without an exclusive live in-studio performance, and of course... a surreal Bill Murray story that no one would ever believe.
