Six-Pack of Steve Goodman, Volume One
On this Six-Pack episode, friends of the show Brian Joyce and Mr Brian Jacobs join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to school him on Steve Goodman. Steve Goodman was a Chicago-based brilliant singer-songwriter that swam in the same early sorta country sorta Gonzo waters with the likes of John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, David Bromberg, Waylon Jennings, Bob Dylan, and even Paul Anka had a hand in his career. He was a unique talent, admired by all his peers, and gifted with an incredible ability to inspire, entertain, and think. He left us too soon but he left us a gorgeous body of work, which we’ll dip into in this episode.
So sit back and discover or rediscover the brilliance of Mr Steve Goodman, darling.
Six-Pack of Whitney Houston, Volume One

We each bring two of our favorite songs from this incredible, unique, iconic, soulful voice that left us far too soon. We get into how we became fans, a bit of her history, what set her apart, and much more. All while sharing some hits and some deep cuts along the way.
Three friends, six songs, one incomparable voice.
Sit back and enjoy some Whitney.
