Coverville 991: Weathering the Storm

September 17, 2013


(Photo credit: Dennis Pierce/Colorado Heli-Ops) Today’s show is inspired by the rain and flooding that we’ve experienced here in Colorado. We’re safe and sound here in the Coverville home and studio, but there are still folks displaced and unable to return home – many who don’t have a home to return to. If you want to contribute to relief efforts here (as I have), visit Help Colorado Now. (62 minutes)

    First thing that popped into my head was “November Rain” by Guns N’ Roses. Was surprised I didn’t hear it… 😛

  2. Good to hear you folks are ok. May the rains abate – and relief efforts be swift. Indeed, your episode’s respectful and positive. Thanks for including Allison. Here’s to help from above – and all ’round!

    Sorry to hear about the flooding. You never think about flooding being that bad but after Katrina every hard rain makes me a little leery. Crazy, I know, but it just makes me feel tense and anxious.

    Hi Brian,

    Surprised that at least one traditional song hasn’t made the list, although I don’t consider them to be cover songs. However, they can be a great historical resource. One great example would be “Wasn’t That a Mighty Storm”, a song about the 1900 hurricane that destroyed Galveston, Texas. A great version of this appears on ‘Fast Paced World’ by the Duhks. Maybe for a bonus tracks episode?

    The slide guitar in Louisiana is flippin’ awesome! Wish I could find an mp3 of it. I appreciate the tone of the show, Brian. I wish that more people in the media industry were as decent as you.
