Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, Season 2, Episode 9: Sad

Berzilla Wallin
Whew! The emotional rollercoaster of the last three episodes rolled gently to a stop last night when I looked at Sad Songs. Of course, I stayed weeping in the car for a few more numbers, praying it would start again, but the ride was over. At least that's how it felt, and here's why:

My Melancholy Baby - Gene Austin
When Can I Change My Clothes? - Bukka White
As Time Draws Near - Tommy Jarrell
Berzilla Wallin - A Conversation with Death
Hard Times Come Again No More - Yo Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, and Mark O'Connor w/James Taylor
Justin Townes Earle - Mama's Eyes (Live @ the Collect)
Jolie Holland - Damn Shame
Gonzales - Gogol
Iron & Wine - Upward Over the Mountain
Joanna Newsom - Sadie
Tom Waits - Take It with Me

Next week, we'll return to a more emotional balanced musical diet. Of course, I wasn't able to get to everything on my list, not to mention the great suggestions people gave me. Maybe if we ask the carny nicely, he'll fire up the 'coaster once more before the season ends?

The Bang & Jangle Radio Hour airs Mondays 9:00-10:00 p.m. on Trent Radio, 92.7 in Peterborough, or online at
