LISTEN TO THE JULY 23, 2015 DIRTY ROOTS RADIO SHOW

What a night...
Off three weeks due to technical issues beyond our control, on one week, then off the next due to personal circumstances. Sure seems like the music devil be conspirin' against us.
If that weren't enough...the show was beset with streaming issues and most folks couldn't even tune in. (But NOT before or after the show...it was crystal clear then!)
And to top it off, I was dumb enough to pay attention to a news feed and, accordingly, had a bit of a meltdown following the news of yet another mass shooting.
It was sloppy...It weren't pretty...but as always, it was what it was and it was real. From the heart.
So, here it is...I give it to you...

LISTEN TO THE JULY 9, 2015 DIRTY ROOTS RADIO SHOW

After three solid weeks of being unable to do the show...tonight was the triumphant return of Dirty Roots Radio.
To be honest, following the unexpected month-long vacation, I'd lost hope and faith in getting back anytime soon...but thankfully, tonight shook me out of the rut.
It's good times...dig in...
