Johnny Cash - The Ballad of Ira Hayes
Today we are talking about a legendary singer/songwriter and a legendary human being. We are talking about the person that was the inspiration for the beginning lines of this very podcast that you hear every week and that you just heard. It is from his iconic line, 'Hello, I'm Johnny Cash.'
Boomtown Rats - I Don't Like Mondays
This week we talk about Ethiopian Christianity, Band Aid, Live Aid, Famines, and Brenda Spencer.
An original! Fun and educational!
What a great idea for a podcast! I’m glad Ronnie came up with this idea and I’m glad he actually made it happen! He comes up with fascinating historical stories about the songs and people he features in The Liner Project. This podcast is just FUN!
good and breezy
fun little podcast.
Only two episodes deep and Ronnie is already knocking it out of the park. He’s a natural at this podcasting thing and the subject matter is some of my favorite stuff to geek out to. It’s like digging into a vinyl and finding those liner notes and getting that little bit of additional insight about the album/tracks that made that money spent well worth it, but in podcast form. Great job Ronnie.
