NOTES: Tape flip near the end of Trouble. The KPIG broadcaster cuts in between a few songs for station identification.
Chris Webster opened this show. Nervous Wrecks show with Will Kimbrough (guitar), Joe Mariencheck (bass). KPIG broadcast called the Humbug Ho-Down. The story that introduces Horseshoe Lake is a pretty lengthy account of Todd and Will's experience driving on snow near Lake Tahoe. Before Alright Guy, Todd sings a few quick lines from a song he says he and Will recently wrote -- another tune about traveling in the snow:
I want you to know that if we get stuck in the snow
A great holiday version of Alright Guy: "What kind of dipshit wouldn't believe in Santa Claus?"
And we die, it's okay to eat me.
If we get stuck on the pass
Chop up my ass
And feel free to freeze and reheat me
On Alright Guy:
- "...new book with all those pictures of Mumbo Gumbo naked..."
- "It ain't like I'm going on TV and biting off chunks of Evandar Holyfield's ear."
