The idea of a podcast came out of the idea of writing a book. I wanted to write something autobiographical, and yet, musically educational. I didn't know how to marry these ideas. then the idea of a podcast came. I could do the same thing through an audio outlet. It's the beginning of something. no kidding. The idea, literally, was for this to be a mix of an audio journal, a music blog, and a podcast wrapped into one thing. Hope you all like!

Listen to the episode

A lot of bands that start off with a hit album complain about the "Sophomore Curse". They say you have all of your life to write and record your first album, and about a year and a half to write and record your second. The first podcast went pretty smoothly. Therefore, I figured it best to see that once the car was started, that it would drive. The freedom of music choice, subject matter, and comforts of home made it sensible to do another podcast. 

Listen to the episode

The "morning" episode! I thought it would be fun to wake up early and get wired as hell on coffee. This episode, certainly, has a different tone. I love that it came out the way it did. It may sound best while cooking breakfast!

Listen to the episode

For my Mom. I'd been staying at the hospital with her a bit, and she was out and feeling a little better. She was the reason for the first few songs, as you'll hear. I, also, love how there are several different genres represented here. I listen to so many things. It's always fun to share. Oh! I play Hendrix's version of "Like A Rolling Stone" from The Monterey Pop Festival. Hell yes. It's the first time I played Rick Nelson, too. I am sure I will play more of him. I love his body of work. He's a great and under-appreciated artist. 'All I Need" by Radiohead kills me, too.

Listen to the episode

Cinco! Rule #1: ANY TIME you can start something by playing Steve Martin, DO IT! Courtney Barnett had one of the best albums out. It got nominated for a Grammy. I don't think she won, but I played something from it. It's a killer record. Elvis, Townes Van Zandt, Slayed, and my friend, Brian Whelan gets a little time, as well. Vodka was represented in the background, as well. Ha!

Listen to the episode

I had just purchased the original 45 of "Bermuda" by Roky Erickson. He is one of my favorite Texas artists. I was excited to play that. I had been very bummed about the passing of George Martin, and my friend, Whitney, came over and hung out while I did this episode. It marks the first time anyone participated or was part of the podcast apart from me. The "3 Little Pigs" track cracks me up every time.

Listen to the episode

This is sort of a tribute to Houston, Texas. I love my city. I realized that the anniversary of my move to Houston was coming up. I just had to embrace that on the podcast. Houston is an interesting city. No zoning laws or anything. There are old buildings and homes next to brand new high rises and complexes. Which, actually, I think gives a personality to the city. GO OILERS!

Listen to the episode

This episode opens with a 78 record! It certainly illustrates my love, knowledge, and passion for the work of Elvis Presley! My nephew gets his debut as a passionate lover of music! He's 4 years old, and has been exposed to Guided By Voices, thanks to my brother. Very proud of this episode. I'm proud of all of them. But this felt so natural. I hope they all feel this way from now on.

Listen to the episode

2016 has shaped up to be such a really sad year for the music industry. It's been difficult for music fans watch to many great artists go. It seems like since January, which is when I started this podcast, I've been talking about great musicians passing. Episode 1 was the week David Bowie died. Merle Haggard was another huge blow. I had a chance to share some music from Young Girls! GREAT Houston band! Plenty of "Mod" fun... Sugar is a great band. "Tangerine" is ode to a girl that has occupied some of my time. Bill Hicks makes a hysterical introduction to an amazing Jimi Hendrix performance. DJ Shadow makes an appearance. This podcast ends with a breath-taking lullaby.Leave comments!

Here we go again, kids! I am very excited to present this idea to anyone who listens! This idea began as a guy playing his demo collection, and then took on a life of its own. By going through these recordings, I realized how much I know about these recordings. While getting this podcast together, I realized that a "Part 2" would be necessary. I got really lost and excited about this. Here is the first installment. This podcast continues to challenge me in terms of "diving" into my music collection. I'm sure it always will. So happy to share this. Take it deep.

Listen to the episode

Welp! I had a great time bringing you all the second installment of my exploration of demo recordings! A huge thank you to Mike Stinson and Kevin Russell (Shinyribs) for their contributions to both podcasts focused on demos. That was a very kind gesture. I hope the listener enjoys both #10 AND #11! They were both a lot of fun to make. Sometimes I don't realize how much music I have. I'm glad that this podcast exists... It gives me a reason for having such a record collection! Ha! Feel free to leave comments on the site. I'd love to hear what you guys think... Anyhow... Episode 12 will be coming soon...

Listen to the episode

The records just keep on a' spinnin'! This episode is back to the more relaxed form of its typical existence. It is also, an ode to my father. Recorded on Father's Day, 2016. I had a lot of fun sharing stories of the "Old Pro", as my brother and I call him. This podcast wouldn't exist without his passion for music early in his life, and sharing it early in mine. He's always loved Almond Joy candy bars. Therefore in high school, his friends nicknamed him "Almers"... They called another friend, "Nuts"... My dad has always been one for nicknames. EVERYONE has one. Jesus. Anyhow, lots of great music shared here, I believe. Mostly what has been on my turntable or CD player as of late. I hope you continue to dig it. Thanks for coming back. Comments always welcome. Until the next one...

Listen to the episode

Honestly, I don't know if anyone even reads these. However, I'm gonna continue to write them. They say that 13 is the most unlucky of numbers. (Is that an American thing? I'm not sure.) Anyhow, I had a great time doing this one. It's amazing, you start realizing what music you go back to, even after you've heard it so many times. Even beyond the "13" theme, I was so happy to share so many things I've known for so long that I've been listening to lately. Robert Johnson, The Neville Brothers, Social Distortion, and a couple of my favorite recordings by Elvis Presley, which would have never turned out the way they did without the late Scotty Moore. I dabble in patriotism, tell another story about my Dad and a neighbor. A good time was had by me. Hope you guys enjoy. I'd also like to encourage you all to leave comments on the website. I never know who's listening, or gives a shit. Ha! See you at the 14th!

Listen to the episode

The title of episode #14 is from a short story written by J.D. Salinger. It was loosely based on the life of Bessie Smith. Published in September of 1948, Salinger trusted Cosmopolitan to print it with no editing. While the publication didn't edit the story, they changed the title to "Blue Melody". Salinger was so angry that he swore to never publish his works in any other publication besides the New Yorker. 

The tone of this podcast varies. It continues to illustrate the width of my musical tastes. Recorded at such a fertile time, the music seems to reflect that. The France attacks had occurred the night before. The U.S. shootings are still in the culture and raw as they seem to have just happened. Some of the music deals with change. However, there is plenty of stuff played that I've just been listening to lately. Curtis Mayfield, Pavement, Magazine, etc... This is where I've been. #15 will be soon, as well. Feel free to leave comments. Thanks for spending time with me and my record collection!

Listen to the episode

Well, sometimes it takes me a while to follow up podcasts, and sometimes I have the free time to get one done in a closer time frame from the last. I had some records out, and decided to fire up #15 for ya. I was so glad to rattle my neighbors with these music selections! Neil Young & Crazy Horse, De La Soul, Toussaint McCall, etc... It's all here, kids! Hit play and see how it makes you feel! I had a good time recording it, and I hope you all have a good time listening to it! Hope you all are well!

Listen to the episode

I've been thinking a lot about my family lately. My aunt Martha, my "Nan", is never far from my thoughts. At a time when I was young and would get in trouble for getting into my Dad's records, she embraced me getting into her records and playing them. My father's always been encouraging, too. However, she really loved it when my brother and I played her records and danced, and sang. My family, on whole, was always encouraging with our up-bringing around music. I was fortunate in that way. My brother is 7 years older than me. Therefore, he turned me on to Kiss, The Ramones, R.E.M., Soundgarden, etc... I've been waxing "philosophical" about these things lately. Ha! I hope it shines through on this episode! I had a ball doing this one. I had the volume LOUD! Dig it! Chuck Berry, The Replacements, Loudon Wainwright III, Iron and Wine/Calexico, and even the voice of Albert Camus reading from one of his masterpieces. Lucky you! See ya deep in #17! Leave comments!

Listen to the episode

Well, here we are again. I've been really playing a lot of music around the house and in the car. The idea of music in film has been on my mind. I've been watching a lot of films. I have been pining on the idea of the role of music in movies or T.V. Shows... and how those songs get picked, and who picks them! Therefore, I thought I'd share some tracks that sound a bit "cinematic" in tone... Hope you enjoy it.

Listen to the episode

The challenge of bringing something fresh to this podcast is really inspiring and has become a breath of fresh air. I've been really listening a lot of Gospel and up-lifting kind of stuff. Some of it, certainly, intense in nature. However, it's a lot of music that isn't full of crap. There is a substance and purpose. I sound like a speech writer. Blah! Ha! I, truly, enjoyed doing this podcast. The underlying message is for hope regarding a negative and bitter culture. I tried to illustrate and focus on acts of kindness and love, as apposed to focusing on all things frustrating and difficult to digest. i hope you all enjoy! Thanks for all the support and comments! Appearances by The Postal Service, Midnight Oil, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Crystals, The Minders, Dwight Yoakam, Henry Rollins, J.F.K., etc...

Listen to the episode

The beauty of this podcast, is that I never know exactly when I might have the time to throw one together. I try to do one a week (at least)... I had a day off, and said, "I bet the people miss me. I'll share music with them and try to brighten their day." Arrogance can carry you very far. 19 episodes far. Ha! I hope you enjoy! Voice of The Beehive, R.E.M., Old 97's, Slaid Cleaves, John Lennon, and Brenda Lee all make appearances, as well as much more. Press play! Then comment! Talk soon!

Listen to the episode

It's funny; I've been playing, mostly, black music on the radio for the better part of 20 years. Delta Blues, Chicago Blues, Soul, R&B, Gospel, etc... I grew up to that music. However, there was also black music that I grew up to that doesn't fit in with my radio program. That is what I'm hoping to expose here. The 1970's brought with it, MANY great artists and songs in R&B, Soul, Funk, etc... It was an era worth focusing on. I hope you feel the same. Get your groove on!

Listen to the episode

Two podcasts in one day? I'm as surprised as you are! The premise desired a second part to this podcast. I just have too much music, and things that I wanted to fit in here... During these podcasts, I was so glad to exhibit classic hit soul tracks along with "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", by Gil Scott-Heron, "Fame", by David Bowie (Might be the first Bowie track played since Episode #1... This era of music really made an impression on me, and continues to be source of musical inspiration. The Stylistics, The Dramatics, Lou Rawls, and even the Bee Gees just blow my mind. I, sincerely, hope you enjoy. See you on 22!

Listen to the episode

It is nice to get back to the messy/all over the place kind of podcast that I love doing. I really loved and enjoyed the last couple of installments focused on 70's Soul, Funk, & Pop Music. However, I listen to so many types of music, and I adore the opportunity to share with you all kinds of shit. 'Cause that is what I listen to. There was a lot of ground to cover here. I think I covered it... Feel free to leave comments here on the site. I love feedback on what you guys relate to, and what you may not. I'd like this thing to become a dialogue; Not just a monologue. Ha! Henry Thomas, The 88, The Beach Boys, Willis Alan Ramsey, Quasi, Spicoli, Guru, and a lot of my voice... all represented here. Hope you all enjoy! See you all on #23!

Listen to the episode

Well, here we find ourselves together again! Thank goodness. I've just gotten back from a Birthday trip to Los Angeles to see my brother. Bill Burr, Mark Dinning, and many others make an appearance. The passing of Leonard Cohen gets a mention and a song in his honor... What an immense talent to leave us at 82. After such a long trip and all, this episode felt like riding a bike. I really enjoyed it. I Hope you do, as well.

Listen to the episode

Recorded live inside my apartment, this podcast has reached 27 episodes! It is crazy to me that I've not run out of music and/or things to talk about. I'm sure there will never be a lack of material. Especially at the rate I buy records and form opinions. I've been listening to a wide array of music lately. Lots of Coltrane, Old 45's, and the new Radiohead album. Jack Kerouac makes an appearance in this episode. Also look out for Jimmy Dean, Little Brother Montgomery, The Zeros, and Randy Newman, as well... A craft beer discussion comes up, too. Feel free to leave comments. Enjoy!

Listen to the episode

I've had a little more time on my hands lately than usual. I try to do these podcasts when I have down time, although I do make time for them when it's time to do one. I've found it to be a great outlet. I listen to so much music, and it's nice to have it fresh in my mind to share here. I talk about the sad loss of the great Sharon Jones, play some Circle Jerks, Nirvana makes their first appearance on the podcast, as well as classic tunes by Bobby Darin, Jimmie Rogers, and The Cure. Along with so much else. Can you believe I mix all those artists together? It even reads weird! 

Listen to the episode

The month of December falls upon us! This podcast was recorded live in my apartment, as all are, after a late work night. There were storms in the Harris County area, and it rained outside the window where I was cuing up records, cd's, etc... With the holidays officially underway, I do play a few little fun nuggets. Bowie and Bing, Bo Carter, Tody Castillo, The Union, The Beatles, The Bad Livers, and even one of the greatest Georgia born vocalists to ever record in Memphis makes an appearance with a story to boot. More to come with the cold, passing months. Feel free to leave feedback here on the website.

He's been the back-bone of this podcast and website from the beginning. Thanks, Jason. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Listen to the episode

Spreading holiday cheer is just second nature to me. I figured a little more "Season's Greetings" could be in order. This was fun to do. It's so nice to play holiday music that's not genre specific! Digging into the archives is so much fun to do for these podcasts! I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season. Appearances from Andrew "Dice" Clay, Tom Waits, The Pixies, Pearl Jam, Don Gibson, and even a kind word from our good friend, Fat Tony!

Happy New Year, everyone! I'm so glad to bring you all #32 of the podcast! With 32, brings a look (wink) at the sounds of great television performances. I got this idea, and I've worked really hard to assemble these performances. Spoken Word, Comedy, Bands, Singers, etc... More To Come! I hope you guys enjoy this series! I watched so much TV growing up... There are so many things that I saw on TV that just seemed like sharing. 

Listen to the episode

...My focus on great television performances continues on this episode. As much work and research as this premise has been to bring to the podcast, it's been a lot of fun in terms of documenting when, exactly, many of these performances were filmed. A young Willie Nelson makes an appearance, as well as a couple of Seattle's best bands. There is a little talk of football and the head coach of Houston's beloved Texans team. David Letterman introduces a new band from Athens, Georgia in 1983. Bob Dylan and Tom Waits also make appearances. Feel free to leave comments. Hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did doing it.

Listen to the episode

Well, kids... here we meet the final installment of my homage to great television performances. I have to admit, it was probably the most work I've done on a series of podcasts. However, it was SO worth it. I enjoy learning and sharing these things. The Bee Gees make an appearance on The Midnight Special, P.J. Harvey performs on 120 Minutes, Sir Douglas Quintet on Playboy After Dark, Conan O'Brien's class shines through, The White Stripes, and a special tribute to one of the greatest minds to ever come from Houston, thanks to David Letterman. I hope you guys dig this final installment of this little series! See you all on #35!

Sam Cooke and our good friend, Kevin Russell (Shinyribs) make an appearance, as well...Feel free to leave comments on the site! Dig it!

Cold weather is motivating only when you do a podcast in doors while cranking the heat, burning incense, and drinking screwdrivers. Lots to take in on this episode. One of my favorite songs of all-time gets a spin. Aaron Neville brings it. We also hear from Sugar, Tommy James & The Shondells, Bo Diddley, World Party, Link Wray, The Jayhawks, and more...

It's been a little while, friends. I do apologize. I could say I like to be fashionably late, or, that I like to keep you in suspense, however, the truth is that my ass just got sick for a little while. However, I made it through, and I'm feeling much better. I hope I wasn't rusty on this episode. I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. I was inspired, in part, by "Star Wars Day"... May the 4th be with you... I tried to mix it up a bit with a few recognizable tracks, as well as things that are a bit deeper.

This was a tough one. It's difficult to see a still-vital artist shove off this mortal coil. The first bit of this episode is a tribute to the late Chris Cornell and his great body of work. I've been a fan of his and most of his bands since I was very young. I never thought he'd not only go so young, but in the manner that he did. There is much more along side his tribute here. An Edgar Allan Poe poem, Hank Williams, Spoon, Roxy Music, Sufjan Stevens, Bill Parsons, The Rolling Stones, T.K. Hulin, and more. Including my rhetoric and all, as well! Feel free to leave comments here on the site regarding any episode, and find us on Facebook by searching for "A Day In The Life Podcast"...

It is always a pleasure and an honor to put these podcasts together. The fact that you all listen and support it through these 48 episodes speaks volumes about what my time of labor means to you all, as well. This episode is fairly packed with so many different kinds of things. Tragedy, humor, poetry, opinions, and of course, the music. Lawrence Ferlinghetti begins episode #48. There are also appearances by Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians, Sham 69, Mike Stinson, The Boogie Kings, X, Old 97's, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, Dom Irerra, Willie Nelson, and many others. My living room still sounds like home to me. Enjoy.

Listen to the episode

This is a "themed" episode of the podcast. Sometimes I get an idea in my head, and it won't go away until I embrace it. As I mention on the podcast, the subject of the Kennedy assassination and the year 1963 has been coming up with a few friends. The more I'd thought about it, I was intrigued by not only the music I know and own from that year, but how much of a transitional year '63 was in American culture. Malcolm X, John F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Muhammad Ali, the march on Washington, the civil rights struggle, protests beginning to happen regarding so many injustices in our country... Then there was the soundtrack to all of this. This is an exploration into a year of shock, innocence, pride, and so many other things. It seemed like 1963 was a year where we thought things would always stay the same in many ways, meanwhile, things started changing around us without us even noticing. We would acknowledge many changes in the coming years, but I think it started here. It was kind of a "sleeper" year of sorts. I hope you all enjoy hearing what 1963 sounded like. This episode is dedicated to Steve-O "The Nightrider", Robert "X" Brown, Murry The "K", John R., Wolfman Jack, Dick Bartley, Alan Freed, Cousin Brucie, Dewey Phillips, Bob Ferguson, Rodney Binginheimer, Phillip, Glenn, and Freddie Broussard, and so many other DJ's and lovers of different eras of music. 

Listen to the episode

I have to be honest. I never thought that this thing would hold anyone's attention past 20 episodes. Even MINE! I'm so glad, however, that this podcast has seemingly taken on a life of its own and challenged me both personally, and musically. It's been such a gift to share so much with you, the listener for 50 episodes! Wow! I tackle subjects such as tropical storms, my favorite album, and the upside of being ill. The soundtrack to these ramblings are furnished by Zager & Evans, Sonic Youth, Jimi Hendrix, The Browns, Rose Melberg, Monty Python, The Four Coins, and even our friend, Brian Whelan. There is more packed in, of course. So... light some incense, take your shoes off, turn up the volume, and come hang in my living room once again for #50 of the A Day In The Life Podcast! Houston Proud!

Listen to the episode

...And the records just keep on spinning! More tunes from the archives! This episode is just as unpredictable as the others. Ha! However, I hope enjoyable.

Music? There's plenty here! Concrete Blonde, Big Star, George Jones, Otis Rush, Tom Petty, The Bevis Frond, Jesse Belvin, The Veils, and much more. A summer episode of sorts!

Spread the word and tell the world that you listen to this podcast!

Listen to the episode

Who is J. Frank Muggs? Well, he was a chimpanzee that was featured on the "Today" show on NBC from 1953-'57. In those days, Dave Garroway was a staple on that show. My friend, Andy Flores, once told me, "Clint, there is NOTHING funnier than chimps in clothes..." I don't disagree. Once again this podcast finds you after being recorded live in Houston, TX! Subjects covered include ice cream trucks, the make-over of this website by my partner in crime, Jason Willis, great songwriters from the Gulf Coast, the smell of newly mowed grass, Summers in Houston, and much more.
