Scottish-born guitar whiz and singer-songwriter, Bert Jansch. A pioneering force in the English folk movement starting in the mid-60s, he was often described as the "Hendrix of the acoustic guitar" and made highly alluring albums to back up that hype- ones that put him a cut above most on that folk scene indeed. This is the 4th official podcast epi…

The royal couple of country music throughout (and even after) their marriage, George Jones and Tammy Wynette had a tumultuous relationship marked by an intense love that was marred by Jones's frequent serious bouts of alcoholism. They had their union play out on the stage and on record as well, where several of their duet album and single releases …
 
The criminally little-known but influential Los Angeles-based outfit X, which put out several tremendous albums in the first half of the 80s with a sound that may have been dubbed punk at the outset but showed a unique sense of melody, vocal harmony and cohesion missing from most music in the genre or the L.A. punk territory in general. Though they…
 
The off & on leading force behind the influential UK prog rock outfit Van Der Graaf Generator as well as a prolific solo artist with over 30 solo albums in a 5 decade record industry career, Peter Hamill has been an odd, idiosyncratic beacon of creativity in his own unique right. From throaty, vocally extravagant pieces of long-form art rock to qui…
 
A troubled, yet gifted and highly envied songwriter, Townes Van Zandt's career was often interrupted by long bouts of inactivity after the early 70s- mainly due to his battles with manic depression, drug and alcohol abuse that ultimately cut short his life at age 52 in 1997. But in his late 60s and early 70s prime, he formed into one of the preemin…
 
Back in the days before TSN and Sportsnet wiped out local sports programming, fans would get their fix from the faces and voices of guys— and some gals— on the conventional TV channels. In its heyday in the 80s, I was the guy on Toronto CBC TV, Joe Tilley worked late night CTV and over at Global Mark Hebscher partnered with Jim Tatti on Sportsline.…

One of the more forgotten, overlooked, yet brilliant musical acts Australia has ever produced, the Go-Betweens never found substantial commercial success but brought indie credibility. Along with Nick Cave, represented a sudden musical boom in the 1980s out of the Queensland capital city Brisbane. Slowly emerging from their art-punk roots upon thei…
 
In their mid-70s prime, Dr. Feelgood stood as arguably the most vital of the so-called "pub rock" acts to emerge. They were a grungy, cutting, sneering antidote to the polished, formulaic glam rock or treacly bubblegum pop dominating the charts at the time in the UK. Though bands like them harkened back to the devotedly pure R&B, blues, rockabilly …
 
If anyone was expecting the Trump presidency to settle down they’ve been disabused of that notion.

With rough-hewn vocals that could belt out soul and blues, but also provide a soft crooner warmth to handle the ballads, Bobby "Blue" Bland emerged from the thriving Memphis Beale Street blues scene of the early 50s to carve out a career as one of the more influential R&B singers over the next 2 decade. A carer lull as tastes changed toward Philly …
 
In an earlier episode of The Full Count author and social critic Heather MacDonald told us about the falsehoods behind the Black Lives Matter propaganda.

The Academy Awards are this weekend.

So they decided a pod about their favorite winners and losers in Oscar history was more fun. Rhys and Allan discuss four of their favorit…
 
Stress is an everyday fact of modern life. The pace of life today leaves everyone a little frazzled. We are told that stress is also a contributor to a number of illnesses— which helps raise our stress levels even more. For some time we’ve also known that stress can spread from one individual to another, even though the second individual did not ex…
 
The Pogues brought a punk energy and sensibility into the traditional Celtic music world after their arrival on the London music scene in the early 80s, unfortunately becoming almost as famous for the drunken exploits of rotten-toothed lead singer Shane MacGowan than for their music. Though this led to his sacking in 1990, the Pogues had a tremendo…
 
Whatever you think of its methods, the #metoo campaign has had an enormous impact. The issue of sexual assault, sexual harassment and public disgrace has made headlines in the past months.

UFC 219 was supposed to end the year on a bang after a difficult 2017 for the UFC. It was supposed to put Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos on the map as the best female fighter ever. It was supposed to add Khabib "the Eagle" Nurmagomedov in the love triangle for the Lightweight belt with Tony "El Cucuy" Ferguson and Conor McGregor. It did all those things…
 
There's never enough MMA news to talk about! The week in MMA was loaded, from news about Conor McGregor and GSP to title fight announcements at UFC Middleweight and Heavyweight.

UFC 218 had not one, but two Fight of the Year candidates with Alex Oliveira and Yancy Medeiros putting on a show alongside Justin Gaethje and Eddie Alvarez. Even if the rest of the card had been a dumpster fire, that's enough to put it up there among the best of the year. But guess what? The rest of the card wasn't a dumpster fire! It was on fire!…
 
This here is the 4th official episode of 2017 for the Sound & Groove Podcast but of course it's way overdue. Don't fret though. Another 2 will still follow here in the rest of 2017. This particular edition is the 2nd of a 2-episode theme dealing with songs I enjoy from artists I typically don't or ones who were often the target of the music cri…
 
This past weekend, UFC: Norfook, er, Norfaulk, uhhh, Northfolk? Whatever. The UFC had another card, one of nine straight weekends of fight cards until December 16.

A night that could have gone so very, very differently turned out to be one of the best fight cards you will ever see.
