Episode 18.1: The Poetry Bonus EP
May 15, 2014 § Leave a comment
At the outset of putting together the 18th episode, I knew I couldn’t reasonably expect listeners to sit through almost three hours of this business, but there was too much good stuff left on the cutting room floor, so I knew fairly early on that there would be a “bonus EP” of sorts. In the spirit of the other Haines-inspired title, I’m calling this one What this Was Going to Supposed to Mean. The URL for the podcast, which you can stream or download (or get through iTunes – you can even subscribe through iTunes and get all future podcasts automatically) is http://dpcoffey46406.podomatic.com/entry/2014-05-15T08_16_47-07_00
Here’s the tracklist, following the format of Episode 18, it’s just bare bones, with credits and other info directly following it. Please take a look at the previous blog post for more info on all the albums from which these tracks are culled. I won’t rehash info at the album level, only what’s unique and pertinent at the level of each individual track.
