Dave Rayburn and Eugene Edwards welcome Brian Whelan into Pollywood Studios for a fun-filled fragment of their ongoing discussion of all things music. You'll hear about the history between Brian and Eugene and how Brian soldiered through life changes to produce his two great albums, Decider and Sugarland. You'll also hear some cuts from those albums and a live in-studio performance of a brand new song.
Then the guys discuss the new Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band reissue, music from 1967, the Velvet Underground, Bob Seger, Frankie Ballard, Jason Isbell's new album, Nashville, the responsibility of country music and the time Brian played piano for Chuck Berry.
They also go over new music from Dan Auerbach, Portugal the Man, Richard Edwards, Roger Waters, Jesse Dayton, Jaime Wyatt and Fanfarlo.
