Boyce (who was also booked that night but coudn't make it due to a flat tire), a great performance and a wonderful story about his work with Robert Plant. Yes, THAT Robert Plant.

Episode 196: People In Pants

When you go out in public, society would dictate you comport yourself in a manner which is not particularly offensive to the decorum of others. In this episode, Ric talks about a couple of recent trips into the public. These forays into the public eye are important not to mess up. Just ask a few certain people in Hollywood. For starters, don't be all handsey and stop talking about your junk. Plus music from Leo Leo.

Episode 195: Broadcast Slackers

New rules in play with the Federal Communications Commission will now allow your local radio station to operate without any local personalities or even cover local events. This is a pretty big deal. In this episode, Ric will explain what this means to you, the radio listener who might rely on your local stations to give you up to the minute information during some sort of emergency. This seems to be following the business pattern long established through history. As the industry begins to stumble, cannibalism begins to come into play. Eat the wounded to stay alive. Plus music from The Candy Company.

NEXT WEEK: Ric in public and stuff.

Episode 194: Tough Room

One might overhear a conversation where two people are complaining about how Memphis fans are the worst. They generally don't go to shows (especially when they have to pay a cover charge) and when they do, they complain. A lot. Yes, you don't have to go far to find a tough room. In this episode, Ric tells you about how tough a room can be in Memphis and what happens when a Memphis artist plays in another city. You won't be surprised by that answer. Plus music from Jupiter Stone.

NEXT WEEK: The irrelevance of the FCC. Plus music from The Candy Company.

Episode 193: Dividing By Zero

Our nation has become divided. About EVERYTHING. It all started with who is currently in the White House. We as Americans sure like a good fight amongst ourselves, at least. Then there are those out there who say this not a good thing. In this episode, Ric will tell you he thinks this actually a good thing. We should be divided over a number of things. How is that a bad thing? Plus music from Pengea.

Episode 192: An Evolution is Coming

From Radioland has been in production for a while now. This, in of itself is rather remarkable. Over the years, we have tinkered with the show. The production of this show has always been about tightening things up and making some specific changes along the way. The fact there is a gulf of difference from episode 1 and this one is testament to how much this show has changed. In this episode, Ric will tell you about some of the changes that are coming in the coming weeks. Plus music from Hardaway.

NEXT WEEK: Being divisive. Plus music from Pengea.

Episode 191: The Old Man’s Lemon Tree

It seems like a simple question. Why are some of the middle aged guys out there hell bent on growing a damn lemon tree? Think about it, there is a sub culture out there revolving around the apparent obsession of growing this little citrus tree. Is it some sort of weird mid-life crisis? Is it simply a matter of accomplishment? Or, is it because these guys need to have something useless to obsess over? In this episode, Ric delves into this weird slice of Americana to see what is going on. Plus music from The Rough Hearts.

NEXT WEEK: Producing From Radioland from the producer's chair. Plus music from Hardaway.
