Week of 6/8/15: The Final Episode

the-endWell here we are.

Six years, three hundred some odd episodes, tons of interviews, and lots and lots and lots of brand new songs. As far as we can tell, The Weekly Feed was the first place that Mumford & Sons were played on American radio, the first show to play Fun., Haim, and countless others. It was an hour set aside each week for complete new music discovery, hand crafted in the way we used to do it with mixtapes, each track blending into the next. I grew up watching shows like MTV’s 120 Minutes and wanted to put my own mark on the world with something just as cool. Sure, there were more than enough places to find new music, but I wanted something special. Something more than just a radio show. I wanted each week to feel like it could have been it’s own album. A mini-event. I think we got pretty close.

Pretty quickly, I started putting interviews into the show with the idea to talk about things that weren’t being talked about in most radio interviews. Sure, there’s always conversation on craft, but to let it spread out to politics and religion, sex and addictions, and how to change the world with a song. I’ll be going further down that road from here on out by formally announcing my next series, The Speed of Sound, here in a couple months. I can’t wait for you to hear it.

But before then, let’s spend one more hour together at the table. One more hour of the week’s biggest new songs. And to make it even more special, some friends have handed over some tracks that you can only hear right here. Thanks to Greg Dulli (The Afghan Whigs / Twilight Singers), Craig Finn (The Hold Steady), J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Houndmouth, and the two artists who appeared on the show more than any other, Joseph Arthur and Ben Sollee, for making this last episode even bigger. And thanks to Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn for stopping by this final episode to talk. Bela was the very first guest I had on the show, back when it was a podcast called Brain Science. That makes him my Bill Murray.

But most importantly, thank you. You listened from all over the world. You wrote in to geek out on the same tracks that I was excited about. You were here week after week, year after year. My passion is to turn other people on to great music. You were there to have that conversation with me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

So one last time, dig in. I’ll see ya soon.
