I have no idea why we get these flu shots
Songwriter Night at The NV, Feb 8

100_year_picnic_jpg_art A couple nights ago, the Legendary Pirate DJ, Dave Rabbit, interviewed me for his popular internet show and showcased 7 of our songs:  100 Year Picnic Artist Showcase 

We had a super fun conversation with lots-o-laughs and stories, and music of course.  We talked quite a bit about songwriting, as well as inspiration for the songs he played on the show, including Everything, Mary Faye Tucker, Marilyn County, Take This Town, I'm In Denial, I'd Take You Anyplace, and his personal favorite...Heaven

Anyway, we were one of the first artists to be featured on this new artist showcase series he kicked off a week ago.  It's a fun and entertaining interview, so enjoy!

Now About Dave

Dave did three tours in the Vietnam War from 1968 to 1971. In 1971, he wanted to do something for the front line troops without censorship and created the legendary Radio First Termer radio show.

The show was created for the entertainment of the troops that put their lives on the line every day in Vietnam and who were part of the huge Anti-War movement which was happening within the ranks of the military itself against the war in Vietnam. After only 21 days of broadcasting, they had to shut down the show to prevent getting caught, as there was tremendous pressure on those that were protecting them. Had it not been for a tremendous underground movement, they would have been caught, court martialed and thrown in prison.

Somehow a recording of the show was preserved and you can go back in time to 1971 to hear a live broadcast.  Go to the Dave Rabbit Archives, and scroll to the very bottom and click play.  By the way, these original Radio First Termer shows contain very explicit material so listener discretion is advised.

Dave is also featured in interviews for the 2006 award-winning documentary, Sir! No Sir!, which chronicles the GI Anti-War Movement during the Vietnam War.

I have to say, I usually consider myself a fairly tech-oriented person, but trying to find the link on that site was driving me nuts. It doesn't seem to show up in Safari or Firefox on my machine.

In case anyone else has the same problem:
