What better way to kick off a new year than with a TTBTGH marathon. 6 hours of radio goodness to keep you company on New Year’s Day.

First up, some simple, peaceful tunes to ease things off (in case your head hurts after New Year’s Eve celebrations)

Then, a celebration of the life and music of two of the greatest singer/songwriters of all time, who both tragically died too soon on January 1, Hank Williams and Townes Van Zandt.

And, a celebration of some of the best and brightest from 2005.

And now for something a little bit different…

The past few weeks have been featuring a lot of the best of 2005, which means that I played a lot of the stuff that we hear a lot on the show anyway. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but 2005 is over, time to start fresh and maybe add some new favourites to the mix, so this show was about music that we either haven’t heard on the show before or don’t hear nearly enough of on the show.

The new releases are starting to heat up after the Christmas dead-season. First up, the much anticipated new effort from the amazing Andy Sheppard. It’s a doozy. Also coming out soon is one by a dream pairing for me, Skydiggers and the Cash Brothers. In anticipation of that, we heard some very old Skydiggers, when Josh & Andy were known as West Montrose, and some very new stuff off of the new record.

Also, TTBTGH jumped into the online music piracy business as the website is the only place you can officially get Geoff Berner’s new smash single “Phoney Drawl.” We heard it, some classic Geoff, and some songs by the man who inspired the song.

Tomorrow night, CBC TV is paying tribute to great Canadian music of the past. If I do the same today, will that convince anyone that they were just copying me? Regardless, we looked back at some great classic music from Canada, and just because we’re equally accepting of songwriters from both sides of the border, we snuck in a few American classics as well.
