Our Gift to YOU: Blues-A-Palooza

Please, before you leave a comment, THIS WAS NOT A KNITTING EPISODE. This was a gift of music for Christmas to our listeners.

Listen to Blues-A-Palooza Here!

  1. I found this episode to be very disappointing! Your podcast has become less and less about knitting... and now it is music? That is NOT why I started listening and that is why I deleted this episode. I don't know if I will listen to your podcast again... it has gone too far downhill for me to be able to trust that it will ever be worthwhile ever again.

  2. I liked it. It's fun and funny. Knitting is just one facet of the podcast. I might never have been exposed to some new wines and music if not for Rick's enthusiastic coverage of his own passions. The kids' occasional appearances, the little stories and comedic riffs that Rick contributes, Karen(sp?)'s crafty forays...they all entertain. Keep it up, guys! Unconstructive criticism is lame and hurtful; shame on you, "Anonymous", for being a Grinch during the holidays.

  3. "Unconstructive criticism"? The knitting and the witty is great... lose the music! I am NOT a grinch just looked forward to the witty banter and was very disappointed with the music foray.

  4. I enjoyed this episode, a great break from all the Christmas music being played everywhere. You've made this your own by not copying any other podcast. The interaction between both of you is fabulous - some knitting, spinning, dyeing, the bunny, a little joking and ribbing, music (a little or alot), your kids adding a little bit -- it's who you both are. Please don't change it because someone is disappointed. I listen because I like it.

  5. The good quality of the music is often lost on the low quality of the ear-buds many of us listen to our iPods with.

    I enjoyed the "extra" show it kept me bouncing at work just like your regular shows. Trying to figure out something for trading post, but I have a smallish stash. I have some handspun that I might be willing to part with though

  9. I like the R&B as well and the variety of topics and the family news and interpersonal banter is part of the fun. I think there is plenty of knitting and spinning talk going on. Sometimes (more in some episodes than others), I wonder how people who podcast about new projects every week keep up the pace (along with jobs and kids and so on).

    It's a very honest glimpse into your lives and I think that quality is what makes a good podcast.

    The ONLY thing that I ask is that you give Memphis a second chance--admittedly, it is a complicated city, and has its share of poverty and all the negative things that go along with that, but it is also the center of some of the rich U.S. history that adds to who we are. It is also home of the blues that Rick likes so much! Probably the most authentic U.S. cultural contribution we share.

    I am not a Southerner, btw, but have come to appreciate it greatly. It *is* a cultural shock for people not from here, but you could say that about any place.

  10. The knitting and the witty is GREAT but, I was dissappointed when I heard nothing but music on this podcast! Don't get me wrong, I love the Blues and even a polka now and then but I wanted to here about knitting/spinning on a knitting podcast not solid music!

  12. Thanks for the Gift of Music. I guess there are some who don't realize that Rick knits with music and voice while Carin knits with yarn. I am not a big fan of the Blues style of music (I prefer 40's style jazz) but I do recognize the amount of effort that went in to putting together the musical compilation. So Rick thank you for the musical gift.

  13. I really enjoyed the blues podcast. I really like blues music, so it was the perfect gift.

    Ignore the haters. :)

  14. I only just discovered your podcast and I'm still getting caught up. I am a knitter, spinner, and a BLUES LOVER!

    I loved the blues podcast, it was a fun change. Have you ever listened to Tony Steidler-Denison's podcast - the Roadhouse?

    All blues - my oldest podcast subscription.
