show 144 – John Twist

When John Twist first visited my program earlier this year, it was during a low point for the station in terms of equipment failure. It didn’t affect his set a bit, it just left us feeling sad that it hadn’t been captured on tape. With John’s upcoming fundraiser at the Red & Black Cafe, we figured it’d be the perfect time to have him come back and play some more songs. With elections coming up, it was particularly important to me that John play “Blood On The Blade”, which I feel is one of his best songs.
