Nov. 17th: "You wrote a bad song, Petey!"

Nov 20, 2013

Our hosts reunite for another fine folksy morning, featuring songs by Lefty Frizzell, The Decemberists, and William Within

This Sunday, Halley and Ross hosted the show together once again! Two weeks can feel like a long time in this regard.

As you're probably curious, the title of this week's post comes from the Fantastic Mr. Fox, as Ross has selected folk tracks from Wes Anderson soundtracks for the last two weeks and this lead to the two of us reenacting this scene live on-air, basically. Here's the scene in question:

That's all we have for you this week but remember to stay in touch by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter!

This coming sunday (the 24th of November) will be a PRERECORDED episode so we'll make the post ahead of time so y'all won't miss out on any vital folk info (said PRERECORD is taking the shape of a greatest hits / favorite folk songs episode so we hope y'all will enjoy it!)
