Today we’ve got a pile of new music, as well as memories of amazing concerts past, including last night’s Corin Raymond show and last weekend’s incredible Static Roots Festival. Lastly we pay a brief tribute to the late, great Paul MacLeod, who left us far too soon, one year ago today; he will not be forgotten.

Podcast: Steel Belted Radio’s Last Ride – June 1, 2017

Steel Belted Radio’s last hoorah! We kicked things off on September 11, 2003, and with the help of some great co-hosts and amazing guests, we managed to keep rolling until June 1, 2017. It was a hell of a lot of fun. On this, the last episode, the longest-serving co-hosts, T-Bar & KK made a surprise appearance, and just like the old days, we played some new music, classics from back-in-the-day, some out there T-Bar picks, and heard a pile of T-Bar’s jokes. Thanks to everyone who tuned in to this episode or any of the 650 or so that came before it. We were blessed to have some amazing support and encouragement over the years. We wish Skippy all the best as he takes over and makes Thursdays his own.

Podcast: Steel Belted Radio – May 11, 2017

I started dreaming of having a radio show as a kid, when I’d pick a song that I felt like listening to, then wait and see what that song made me think of, and travel down the line from there. Now that I am actually on the radio, I usually do that on air. Sometimes, it can lead us off on some strange tangents, like tonight. I make no apologies and no promises that it won’t happen again because it surely will! To finish things off a little more sensibly, we previewed some exciting shows coming up this weekend.
