SAVE THE DIRTY ROOTS RADIO PODCAST!

Friends,

The Dirty Roots Radio podcast is up for renewal.  We need to raise a total of $180 to keep the podcast alive.  Without your help, the podcast can’t continue.

The podcast was made possible by your generous support and has taken things to the next level, allowing us to share in-depth interviews with special guests such as Scott H. Biram, Jesse Dayton, Kinky Friedman, and Jonny Two Bags – with more to come in the near future! – and providing opportunities for people to share the program with friends and catch up anytime they miss a live broadcast.

My pledge in return for your support is to continue to share the music that moves us, introduce you to new artists whenever possible, and to bring you two hours of stress-free HEALIN’ FEELIN’ every Thursday night. 

I’m not going through any pledge drive website this time.  There are minimum goals required there and $180 doesn’t qualify.  I want to keep the goal amount as small as possible to meet the very minimum basic need: Keeping the podcast alive.  BECAUSE…there are plans in motion.  Wheels are turning on the NEXT next level of Dirty Roots Radio and hopefully that information will come sooner rather than later.

If you’re able to give anything and can find it in your heart to do so, please consider a contribution.  Any amount is helpful.  Any amount we receive over the $180, will be set aside for upcoming projects.

YOU CAN MAKE YOUR DONATION DIRECTLY ON THE DIRTY ROOTS RADIO WEBSITE.  ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE HOME PAGE, THERE IS A “DONATE” BUTTON.  PAYPAL AND ALL MAJOR CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS ACCEPTED. 

***THE DONATE BUTTON DOESN'T SEEM TO APPEAR ON THE MOBILE VERSION OF THE SITE.  YOU WILL NEED TO ACCESS THE PAGE FROM A TRADITIONAL DESKTOP COMPUTER - OR CONTACT ME FOR MORE INFO/OTHER OPTIONS.

CONTACT ME AT MY PERSONAL EMAIL IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL: DJTWANG77@YAHOO.COM.  FEEL FREE TO MESSAGE ME ON FACEBOOK OR TWITTER AS WELL.

Thank you for your continued support of Dirty Roots Radio!!!

Dirty Roots Radio Special Edition: Kinky Friedman Interview

Kinky Friedman has been something of a frequent guest on this show over the years. He's definitely one of the most entertaining. You don't so much interview The Kinkster as you just wind him up and let him go.

I gotta say, this was my favorite visit with him so far. He's currently on tour promoting his fantastic new album, "The Loneliest Man I Ever Met".

This is the most laid back experience I've had talking to him and he cut loose here even more than usual. Check it out here as we cover everything from his new album and current tour to the state of the world and political correctness to the idiots in Nashville, TN and the greatness of Willie Nelson's "The Red Headed Stranger".

I suppose I should warn you that there is NSFW language here. If yer listening at work, make sure it's on headphones.

Another note...I don't talk politics and I don't court controversy on this little show. But when you talk with Kinky, both are inevitable. Fair warning, there's something to offend everyone here: Red and yellow, black and white....and Jew and Mexican.

I'll quote the Wall Street Journal. They said it best in their review of the new album when they said,"The former leader of the Texas Jewboys has been stomping on sensibilities since the 1970s. He is best known for sharply satirical, sure to offend cowboy songs, such as 'Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed' and 'They Ain’t Makin’ Jews Like Jesus Anymore'."

I don't know what else to say, but if you take it seriously....then you are seriously just missing the point.

We had a bad phone connection at times...I cleaned up as much of that as I could, but you'll hear some crackles and pops from time to time and when Kinky asks several times if I'm still there, that's why.

I hope you enjoy...

Dirty Roots Radio Special Edition: Jesse Dayton Interview

Completing the hat trick, here we talk with Jesse Dayton!

Jesse will be on tour throughout the month of November with Scott H. Biram and Jonny Two Bags. CLICK HERE to visit Jesse Dayton online and see if they'll be in your neighborhood.

For the uninitiated, Jesse Dayton has played with legend such as Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, and Ray Price. He's played with the Supersuckers. He also fronted the Road Kings and has numerous fantastic solo albums to his name.

In recent year's he's provided the soundtracks to two Rob Zombie films, one of which he personally appeared in; he's portrayed Dirty Roots Radio friend Kinky Friedman in the stage show "Becoming Kinky: The World According to Kinky Friedman"; and he recently wrote and directed a film called "Zombex".

Fresh off the road filling in for Billy Zoom on X's recent tour, I caught up with this renaissance man as he was prepping to leave town for this new tour.

Jesse's a character and I had a ball talking to him. Hope you enjoy it too!

(Be sure to check out the special edition interviews with Scott H. Biram and Jonny Two Bags and check some of the archived Dirty Roots Radio shows, too!)
