Podcast: Aug. 22, 2021: Quitters, Ghosts, & Where Are They Now

Episode #902

Every once in a while you notice that an artist or band that you loved or saw a bunch of times seems to be missing in action. Sometimes a band or artist will just give up the hectic, unpredictable, stressful, dangerous life of a touring musician, and sometimes they’ll just drop a little further off the radar, still making music that you might not necessarily even know about. This episode compiles some of those artists and bands and we track a few down and wonder about some others.

This is another in our long line of timeless “standby” episodes that you might hear again some day when I’m not able to come up with a new show. It’s full of great music, so I’m sure you won’t mind. Heck, you might just want to come back and revisit it on your own some time!
