Shannon McNally – Black Rose

I’ve been thinking about music, and how much I miss it. COVID silenced most live music, including (ware)HOUSE Concerts. Concerts will be back at the (ware)HOUSE, I’m just not sure when. Until then, I’m going to share songs with you. Beginning on Thursday, I’ll send daily emails with the (ware)HOUSE Concerts Song of the Day. This is a sneak peek. Each email will tell you about one song. Then I’ll add the song to a public playlist that I’ll share on Spotify and Apple music. If you have those services, you can save the playlist. The playlist will grow by one song per day. If you don’t have those services, you can find the songs through other services. I’ll link to the song on YouTube if I can find it. Here are the Playlists (including the song for this intro email) Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3xYKtYparrdJRYAjBj9kjx?si=eb6c3ebc30484204 Apple: https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/ware-house-concerts-song-of-the-day/pl.u-Ggz26cZlAVLj ********** Today’s Song  Title: Black Rose Artist: Shannon McNally (w/ Buddy Miller) Album: The Waylon Sessions (2021) YouTube Link: https://youtu.be/e__q_MtOlwk Notes   Shannon McNally played (ware)HOUSE Concert #3 — way back when in December 2017.   In May 2021, she released this album of Waylon Jennings covers. Rave reviews, well deserved. Slow songs, fast songs, she does ‘em all. Special guests, she’s got ‘em — including Buddy Miller on this track.   It’s a great album.

Sarah Potenza – Worthy

Before the world shut down, I booked Sarah Potenza to play at the (ware)HOUSE. We had to postpone that March 2020 concert (we will reschedule). But when (ware)HOUSE Concerts were on hold, Sarah Potenza remained busy — including a stint on NBC’s America’s Got Talent.  Today’s song of the day is the one she performed on her AGT audition. Here the video: https://youtu.be/T6IKSFubZ14 And here are the details… Today’s Song   Title: WorthyArtist: Sarah PotenzaAlbum: Road to Rome (2019) Here are the Playlists:   Spotify:https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3xYKtYparrdJRYAjBj9kjx?si=eb6c3ebc30484204   Apple:https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/ware-house-concerts-song-of-the-day/pl.u-Ggz26cZlAVLj 

Paul Thorn – It’s Never too Late to Call

I saw Paul Thorn at Delmar Hall here in St. Louis last week.  Great concert, featuring lots of songs from his fantastic new album “Never Too Late to Cry.”  That album’s title track is today’s (ware)HOUSE Concerts Song of the Day. The song’s about Paul’s sister, Deborah. Before she died in 2018, Paul used to call her, late at night, after gigs. Deborah was a night-owl, the only one of Paul’s siblings who might be awake when he called. He would apologize when she picked up. “Sorry to call so late.”  She’d always reply: “I love you, Paul. It’s never too late to call.” When he introduced the song at Delmar Hall, he said, “I hope all of you have someone in your life who tells you it’s never too late to call.”  Amen, Paul.  Today’s Song Title: It’s Never too Late to CallArtist: Paul ThornAlbum: Never too Late to Call (2021) YouTube Link:https://youtu.be/JXBwpzr3XSs Here are the Playlists:  Spotify:https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3xYKtYparrdJRYAjBj9kjx?si=eb6c3ebc30484204   Apple:https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/ware-house-concerts-song-of-the-day/pl.u-Ggz26cZlAVLj 

Tom T. Hall – Tulsa Telephone Book

I was on Twitter the other day and saw a post that said Tom T. Hall was twice the songwriter Bob Dylan is.  And the crowd went crazy. Some cheered loudly. Others booed and hissed.  That’s how I learned that Tom T. Hall died earlier this month. Turns out that Hall-v-Dylan debate has been raging for decades — since 1995 when Dylan ripped Hall and Merle Haggard at some awards ceremony. I think it’s kind of silly. Saying Hall is better than Dylan (or vice-versa) is like saying blue is better than green or Scotch is better than bourbon. It’s a matter of taste. And you can enjoy ‘em all.  So I’ll step out of the ring on this one and say only: Tom T. Hall was a helluva songwriter and a great storyteller. He tells one of those stories in… Today’s Song Title: Tulsa Telephone BookArtist: Tom T.

(ware)HOUSE Radio – Great Album-Enders

Great album-enders.
They leave you wanting more.
Here are a few of my favorites. 

(ware)HOUSE Radio – Ashes and Ashtrays

There’s something about cigarettes and the stories they tell…“…
Ashes on the floor by 10 o’clock…”
“I’m down to my last cigarette…”
“He knew how his nation was doing
By the length of a sidewalk cigarette butt…”
“She’s smokin’ 100’s alone…”
Here are tunes from which all of the above lines were taken, plus a few others to puff on…
