000: It Begins

In the inaugural episode of The Liner Project, I talk about my love of music and history and why I even started this thing. I discuss my musicial influences like the following:

Country Joe & The Fish

Janis Joplin

The Band

Sly & The Family Stone

Crosby, Still, Nash & Young

Jimi Hendrix


I discuss my lifelong love of history and the influence that one great teacher like Bob Depro can have on a person.

The Liner Project is going to run in seasons of 10 shows. They will release bi-weekly and each show will have homework that points to the next episode. Send your homework answers to Ronnie at any of the places linked below. If you get it right, you will have a chance to receive a homemade surprise from my wife and I.

Homework for this week:

  1. This band is from Festus, Mo.
  2. One of the founders of the ’90s alt-country/roots rock revival is an integral part of this band.
  3. This song talks about some flags which seems topical.

And lastly some thanks and credits like real liner notes:

My wife, Shawna Lutes, for designing the logo and being there for me for 20 years. She inspires me to want to do more.

My great friends, Scott Willsey and Vic Hudson, for helping (and by helping I mean doing) with the website and editing. Added to these two I would like to add Clay Daly for their friendship and pushing me to do this show.

See you in a couple of weeks where we will learn about flags. Thanks for listening.
