EP. 7 - BAD AUDIO, LAPTOP WOES, and a CONFUSED PORPOISE???

This will forever be known as the FRANKENSTEIN EPISODE, which I was forced to piece together from a pile of audio files. And as an ADDED BONUS, it features REALLY POOR AUDIO QUALITY! Hooray. Hopefully the content will be worth the inconvenience

Today's theme is PURPOSE-DRIVEN SONGWRITING, as will be deftly cover by Marie in NOTES AND BOLTS.

WILLIE NELSON, NEIL DIAMOND and BRUCE SPRINGSTEIN get the "BEFORE THEY WERE STARS" treatment in the LEGENDARY SONGWRITER SALUTE.

Marie discusses CAREER ADVICE given by Nashville music exec and ASCAP representative LEANN PHELAN in her ACADEMIC MOMENT.

Steve focuses on possibly the "GREATEST COUNTRY SONG OF ALL TIME" in UNDER THE MICROSCOPE.

Marie proves that she's not above throwing a 9-year-old "under the bus" in the WHAT THE !@#$% segment.

We introduce a potential new feature where we'll PLAY AND CRITIQUE a listener's song.

Steve explains that he's "SLEEPIN' LIKE A BABY" in STEVE'S PHONE.

And as usual, we'll touch on the LOCAL SCENE and THE MAILBAG.

Write, Rewrite, Rewrite (as necessary). Wash, Rinse, Repeat.
