Farewell to Cornerstone Festival - Episode #195

posted: October 16th, 2015

I followed the Cornerstone festival for most of my life as it was in my home state.  But I never actually attended the event until the last run, when I went to two of the last three years.  I went to the final Cornerstone in July 2012 as I watched the bitter-sweet ending to a truly historic annual event.  We quickly put together a podcast to pay tribute to Cornerstone, but I knew I could …Read More »

Stories Behind The Songs - Episode #146

posted: July 24th, 2015

These "story" episodes are some of my favorites, and I have plans to do 2 new versions of this later this year. There is something about the power of story that can help you become an even more active listener, and in turn often allows your soul to glean more from the song.  I hope that happens for you!  (Dave)

Best Songs of 2014, pt.1 - Episode #301

posted: January 30th, 2015

If selecting the best albums of the year is not void of subjectivity, choosing the individual songs that stood out is even more personal and varied.  Even if critics agree on an artist or album, chances are they won't pick the same song when it comes to choosing favorites or stand-outs.  This is why we take 2 full weeks every year on UTR to highlight some of the many songs cited by our critics - …Read More »

Live Exclusives - Episode #300

posted: January 23rd, 2015

I love celebrating milestones.  And we almost never made it to show 300, so this is worth a hearty celebration indeed.  We have played live tracks before, but mostly just from the studios at our old location.  But for this show, I wanted to feature live tracks from a variety of UTR events.  So you'll hear some songs from the old studios, some from the Escape To The Lake main stage, some from the 2014 …Read More »

We Are Back! - Episode #298

posted: January 8th, 2015

After a three month hiatus, it is SO good to be back with brand new episodes. In fact, there was a moment when I wondered if we would ever present another new episode of UTR.  I am so grateful for the help and support of so many, including dozens of financial backers who were first-responders to our need. I had some time to think, "What type of show should we do for our grand return to the …Read More »

Title Tracks - Episode #289

posted: August 22nd, 2014

The term "title track" is the song that bears the same name as the album title.  Usually the song comes first. So this means that, to the artist, that song is special in some way - whether it be theme, craftsmanship, depth, or melodic acheivement.  So as we play all title cuts this week, you can reflect on the fact that for various reasons, these are important enough songs to the artists, that their album …Read More »
