JD McPherson joins Z. for the final episode of The Show On The Road's 2019 Season. The Oklahoma-born artist makes his own brand of high intellect, dance party-ready Sun Studios-style rock 'n roll and last year, may have recorded one of the greatest original Christmas albums of the modern era with "Socks".
While JD McPherson probably never dreamed he would become a new rock-n-roll king of Christmas, “Socks” that may be his most impressive feat yet. If you’re deeply suspicious of the capitalistic caterwauling of most modern holiday music on the airwaves (except you, Mariah!) you'll still fall in love with JD’s sarcastic and sweet new collection of holiday originals, which deftly dives into lesser discussed Christmas subjects like broken expectations, inter-family angst, holiday horniness, and hilariously - the myth of why Santa must be grossly overweight to satisfy us myth-loving kids. Give the album a spin as you rock around the Christmas tree or the Chanukah bush, or even better - keep it playing all year long.
Back in a few weeks with more episodes!
