We sat down with the Dandies to divine their secret recipe to happiness or as they call it, "Dandiology" we also hear some great tunes along the way! The Dandies include swingin' guitar from Ben Hood, Mandolin and Vocals from Keystone Hill, fiery fiddle from Aerin DeRussy and finally hollers and bass thumpin from the esteemed Ryan Brown. Tune in now for the interview and live tracks including "The Ballad of El Rodego", "We Drink Whiskey", "Friends" and "Alabama Little Dog".

In high school Hew was big into writing poetry and pros but eventually picked up the guitar at 15. Dan Bullard talks to Hew about getting over his writer's block to reintroduce his music to the world and some of the stories that ended up as his tracks. Today we also get to hear "Down in the Dirt", "Grey-Blue Skies", "It All Turns Around", and "100 Miles to Memphis" live recorded at Spice Rack Studios.

James G. Birney is one of the few self-professed abolitionists from the Deep South and specifically Alabama. His life and work provides an insight into the evolving American attitudes towards slavery and its moral failings from the 1790’s to his death immediately prior to the Civil War. Birney was a deeply imperfect man and his path from slaveholder to first Presidential candidate for the anti-slavery Liberty Party traces a strange path across American politics in the Antebellum.
If Walter Cagle were alive today he might have had something to say about this week's "Snowpocalypse". The headline "500 Pound Weather Prophet of Boaz Dies" was the first clue that pulled John into the fascinating story of Walter Cagle. After suffering a mysterious illness that left him in a temporary coma Walter began observing local wildlife and predicting the weather, priceless information for farmers of the Tennessee Valley. Walter's fame grew readily with the help of newspaper stories. He eventually shared front page with the Spanish Civil War and the succession crisis of the English Empire.
