207 The LEFT Show – The Danger Zen

0

You have to live your life as YOUR life, you can’t live it on other people’s terms; if you do, it can blow up in your face … or between your shoulders, you know whatever!

Forrest id out again this week, so Taylor Hunsaker popped into the studio to hang out with JM Bell and Bob Easton. We covered a lot of ground, and, as usually happens when there’s a girl in the studio, the show went long. Whoopsie!

199f The LEFT Show – Bye-Bye, Bobby, Don’t Cry

0

I’m supposed to write something here that makes you want to click in and listen to this week’s show, and, you know what? I don’t know what the hell to say. Between work anxiety and our seemingly ever more far away 200th Episode – loaded with a stack of it’s own problems – I’m just happy that I’m still making shows, you know?

We say good bye to FOTP Bob Henline before he leaves the state for greener … greater whiter pastures. JM Bell, JC Carter, and Bob Easton join in the fun, and Jason Williams has an all new The Sidetrack!

199e The LEFT Show – The Ebola Town Blues

JC is back in the studio with JM Bell, Forrest Shaw, and Bob Easton, and we’re all pretending that we’re not just stalling while we run around in circles trying to figure out what the hell we’re doing for the big 200th.

So, here is a special episode, with many special things, not like a normal episode, no, no. Special. It’s even got some Jason Williams in it, if you know what I mean!

199d The LEFT Show – Sidetracked

In this very special episode of The LEFT Show, our dear friend Jason Williams, from The Sidetrack, MyDD, and KVNU’s For The People, take a few minutes to share some memories, reflections, and remembrances of the years that have passed behind us, and he explores his vision, and advice, for the future.

Please, spare a little time for the deep, melodic voice of Mr. Williams, won’t you?

199c The LEFT Show – I’ve got to keep control.

I’m not going to go on and on except to say that as Adam Andrews has had a journey into sanity, I, too had my eyes opened this last weekend, and it’s time to make both amends and explanations. This one is pretty selfish, but, it felt needed, and was totally cathartic, so …
