One could say that all of the Two Pick Ten episodes present various rabbit holes that Craig has fallen into – for most episodes, the entire purpose of the series is to bring together two people familiar with an artist’s entire catalog of music. This one was a month-long crash course in melodic goodness as special guest Josh Fitzgerald willingly goes to that desert island with Craig and the two collaborate on their two-record set THE BEST OF ABBER. You’ll have to listen to understand.
Join us for a very special surprise Woodstock anniversary episode where Craig convinces legendary Woodstock author and expert Scott Parker to join him on the recently discovered desert island Yasgur as they brainstorm their own configuration of the Woodstock soundtrack for the 51st anniversary of the legendary festival. The twist this time – only one song per artist. There is, as always, chat about the songs picked but also discussion about the bands that didn’t make it onto their reconfigured soundtrack and why, as well as plenty of anecdotes about both Scott and Craig’s (and Megan’s!) visits to Bethel and all kinds of groovy goodness. In other words, this podcast is “far out” and hopefully won’t put you “through bad changes”.

The always handsome Mister Brian Jacobs joins the always boisterous Craig Smith to discuss an artist that they grew up on and still consider one of their favorites: Billy Joel.

The always jovial Mister Brian Jacobs joins Craig for a risky and controversial episode of Two Pick Ten, where each pick their top ten Beatles desert island picks.
