Ric Ocasek in Moonside (Reprise) It’s not a rerun; it’s a special edition. This is redo of the fourth episode I ever did on this podcast. I thought that original was good. but being relatively ignorant about podcast-making back in the day, there are a few things, content-wise and production-wise, that I always wanted to change about the original version. Now I’ve done it: For your enjoyment and entertainment, a better-sounding and deeper-diving episode about the use of pop music in EarthBound, all tied together with a personal story about the persistence of memory.

Happy 2nd to Singing Mountain!

happy anniversary

You giving the lesser played songs their time to shine really makes Singing Mountain an excellent show! It really does have a doctor-ery-ery hospital waiting room vibe and is quite relaxing to boot.
