Chances With Wolves

I’ve wanted to do a guest set on Chances With Wolves for the longest time, and finally thought up a good theme – music about God. Turns out they’d been thinking of a doing a show with a “Higher Power” theme, so it was kismet. Digging for an hour of good music which fits both the show and the theme gave me a newfound respect for how much work goes into doing a show every week and never repeating a record… it’s astonishing. The music we played is mostly old, soulful, often weird and obscure, and if that’s your bag, be sure to listen to their show every week.

PS: If you haven’t already, listen to episode 20 of my podcast, Small Talk with guests Chances with Wolves and learn more about the dudes behind this terrific show.
