Join us for an evening of less talk and more witty banter about animal husbandry. Featuring Flowerman, Oil Can, special guest Pleasure Horse, an interview with Abby Bischoff, a reading by Ghosts & Horses, a letter from Skunkweed, free verse haiku poetry, songs, and more.
Look! The home opener of Rock Garden Tour's third season on SDPB Radio, tape recorded live from Latitude 44 in downtown Sioux Falls, SD. This one features less talk and more witty banter on the topic of prepping the soul. The show features haiku poetry, a parody song about Woonsocket by John Boylan, some ping pong references, an original song about tavern sandwiches by the Rock Garden Tour Family Band, and a special performance by Dan Mahar.
Our 2013 home opener, live from Latitude 44 in downtown Sioux Falls, went about as well as these things go. There was less talk, and more witty banter about a variety of things like tavern sandwiches and Operation Timber Strike and more. Thanks to special guest Dan Mahar for singing with some soul. And thanks to John Boylan for singing with some historical reverence for Woonsocket. Listen to the SDPB Radio broadcast of this live tape recording on Saturday, April 27 at 8pm. And as always, keep it rural.
This week's rock and roll garden variety podcast features a talk with Steve Bormes, a certified aborist, and John Boylan, an expert on Swamp Thing. It makes sense that we'd ask a Swamp Thing expert to join us in the wake of the recent ice storm, but why the certified arborist? That's what you're about to find out. Enjoy the podcast and keep it rural.
This week's rock and roll garden variety podcast features dead air with sound design by Captain Midnight. He's new at this but we think his audio mix digs okay, especially the one he designed to accompany Oil Can's free verse haiku. Other high points in this week's Rock Garden Tour podcast include an answer to a deep philisophical type question, some facts about Conway Twitty, and a performance on Flowerman's brand new corn kazoo. Enjoy the podcast, keep it rural, and remember that our Season 3 Home Opener happens on April 16th at Latitude 44 from 7-9:30pm. We'd love to see you there.
Last Saturday night on SDPB Radio we rebroadcast historic episode 34 of the original rock and roll garden show. If you don't recall, this is the one where News from Pierre (pictured above holding a newspaper) spends about 45 minutes searching for Badgerton, SD on a globe and two different maps. Classic! The new season of the Rock Garden Tour starts up again later this month. Until then please enjoy one of our favorite episodes of all time and keep it rural.
This week's Rock Garden Tour podcast asks a lot of deep, prodding type questions like "Who founded the community of Woonsocket, SD?" Or "Have you ever tried a deep fried tavern?" The podcast also features a performance of an original song about Woonsocket, and an interview with triple-double National Corn Dog Day champion John Boylan. Enjoy this week's rock and roll garden variety podcast and as always, keep it rural.
And so it begins. Oil Can and Flowerman met up in the Podding Shed to produce the first podcast of the 2013 Rock Garden Tour season on SDPB Radio. We have a few details to share regarding our production schedule for the year, but that's not really important right now. What is important is this 12 minute podcast featuring an interview with South Dakota Magazine's Katie Hunhoff. It's about taverns. And heterotopias. And other things you might need to know about when "Prepping the Soul". Enjoy the podcast and keep it rural.
We recently wrapped production on the second season of the original rock and roll garden show. I remember several things about that night. The Tinderbox for example, I remember they played and their singer stomped his feet really loud and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. I also remember News From Pierre. He read a list of gift ideas for that hard-to-buy-for avant-gardener on your list. I especially liked the one about an all expenses paid vacation to a casino in Milbank, SD. Please enjoy this month's Rock Garden Tour Podcast and as always, keep it rural.
This month's gig poster has an absurd amount of holiday spirit because that's what everybody wants! Rock Garden Tour's holiday special will include music from The Tinderbox, sounds from Oil Can, commentary from News from Pierre, a story about cactus, an original carol about mistletoe, and more.
