Podcast: February 2, 2014 w/Gurf Morlix

February 1 marked 25 years since the tragic death of one of the great, unsung songwriting heroes of all time, Blaze Foley. His reputation has grown over the course of those years, thanks to friends and fans who have sung his songs and spread the word, but there’s still more to be done. We’re doing our part today with a retrospective of some great Blaze covers and of course some from the man himself. Plus, we’re joined by a very special guest, Blaze’s good friend and musical partner for many years, the great Gurf Morlix!
