The pandemic sure threw a wrench in the works in 2020. Lots of things changed, including the fate of The Jukebox Graduate podcast. With live touring put aside, Eugene Edwards has not been able to be on the road with Dwight Yoakam. As you may have noticed, he was rounded up by the folks at Fender to do weekly live videos with guests. Those have been truly enjoyable. He's also been spending a lot of time with his guitar lesson efforts. With work and other side projects, Dave Rayburn has been equally tapped out time wise. Thankfully, we are well, and we are riding this thing out just like the rest of you. We hope you've been well, and we look forward to finding a path back to cranking out new podcast episodes in the new year.
Meanwhile, we would like to announce the latest incarnation of The Jukebox Graduate.
Everyone... welcome to The Jukebox Graduate Radio!
Our goal here is to provide listeners/followers with 24/7 music content personally curated by Dave and featuring music from the 1960s to present day. If you've listened to our podcast at all, you will have noticed that our musical tastes range from Folk and Country to Rock and Pop to Jazz and Blues and beyond. Our goal is to also make The Jukebox Graduate Radio an alternate home for our past and future podcasts as well as new and previously unheard interviews conducted by your favorite hosts. In the coming weeks and months, we will be developing a programming schedule that will include themed and hosted shows, including recurring guest DJs to add to the diversity and musical education that we are all constantly seeking.
As an added bonus for our music nerds out there... there will be opportunities to take part in our effort and host your own show... but more on that later.
For now, please enjoy what we're putting out there. More and more music is being added to our archive, and we are happy to finally be able to get around all the licensing hurdles to get you so much of the music we wished we could play in full on the podcast. Stay tuned here and on our Facebook page for the very latest as The Jukebox Graduate Radio takes its first steps into 2021.
Happy New Year, and thanks for listening!
Dave & Eugene
