Rural Ledge-ucation #72: 1st World Problems

Let's be completely honest here. I'm a "negative creep". A pessimist; a curmudgeon. Insert any words that are similar to those. I'm all that and more. Admittedly, the vast majority of my whines are about people, topics, and/or situations that really mean nothing in the long run.
Today's show includes some of those types of complaints - a phone that doesn't work correctly; issues with contractors. At the end of the day, they really don't mean anything, but I do have this microphone, mixer, and podcast account to ensure at least a few people have to endure my complaints.
But wait! It's not just about my whines. Today's show features primarily recent releases, including tunes from box set releases by Ryan Adams, Billy Bragg & Wilco, and World Party. There's brand new tunes by Dwight Yoakam and Justin Townes Earle. There's also a set of tracks from the most recent Uncut Magazine recreation of The Byrds Younger than Yesterday album (although I erroneously say it is Mojo Magazine). It's not all doom and gloom, so take a listen at the various online spots that feature this show, or...
