Well its been awhile since we posted our last show but we are glad and proud to be back with what we consider a very special program.  This time around we’ve opened the floor for our dear friend, and first guest host, Greg Gardner of Secret Seven Records.  This week Secret Seven will release “Clay Pigeons”, a collection of rare and wonderful Blaze Foley recordings available for the first time on vinyl.  Blaze is an artists we both recently discovered this year, a songwriting ace with a truly heartbreaking story.  For the show we chose a couple of songs off the new record, a version of John Prine doing a Foley tune, and a couple of tributes written and recorded post-humously in Blaze’s honor.  To pat things out Greg brought along a couple of tracks from other Secret Seven releases as well as a personal favorite of his that we think fits right in there with the kind of tracks we’ve been posting all along.  Be sure to check below the track list and sound cloud for a link to Secret Seven Records where you can find the “Clay Pigeons” lp.  We’re exited to say all this happens to be just in time for “Blaze Foley Day”, which was just declared on Nov. 4th in Blaze’s hometown of  Malvern, Arkansas!  Hope you enjoy and we’ll be back with more tunes before you know it…
