Solo Bob celebrated Sam Moore’s 87th birthday (Sam & Dave) with help from Bruce Springsteen and others and celebrated Martie Maguire’s (Chicks) with help from K.D. Lang. There was a set of truckin’s songs, too. Adia Victoria, Calexico, Los Lobos, Boz Scaggs, Sunny Sweeney and more joined the party. And there was a poignant track about the mortality of dogs.

Bob and BS&B’s Fifth Beatle, Jack Greiner, mucked around in the deep Mississippi mud that is the sordid, rumored history of “Ode to Billie Joe” and sang the praises of its woefully under appreciated author Bobbie Gentry.

Bob spent an inordinate amount of time deconstructing the Bread song “The Guitar Man” as interpreted by Cake. Everything else was about hot weather or global warming, sometimes both. Finally, he paid tribute to two siblings of folks close to the show who passed on recently.

No transmission? No problem. After a storm knocked WAIF off the air and the internet, Bill recorded a website-exclusive show that featured music from 1972 and 2022. Think of it as an audition tape for the BS&B Podcast.
