Greetings Dead Freaks!
It's midsummer and I've got a new episode to cool you down. Guitarist Jim Nunally chats with me about coming up as a flatpicker in the Bay Area, making the jump to music full time, playing music with David Grisman, the latest album from the Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally band, and so much more. There's also a mix of Grateful Dead tunes to wrap the whole thing up so stick around for the whole thing as you won't want to miss a bit.
You can find the last album, Western Sun, from the Nell and Jim Band on their website, NellandJim.com. It's a delightful fusion of the traditional sounds of bluegrass, folk, country, and swing with an infusion of smart songwriting. Their voices blend beautifully and the band has chops to spare. After the interview, I spin a terrific cut from the album.
I hope you enjoy this episode. I put some thought into the mix and it starts weird, but pulls up into some fairly coherent space.
