Hello friends! I hope you are all safe and healthy. Welcome to episode 900!!!! I can't believe we're actually here. I can't believe it! First, I want to thank you and everyone who has listened to the show. I want to thank all of the artists who have come in and shared their story and made this show worth listening to. Thank you. I have loved doing this show. I have connected with so many artists and been inspired by their music and their stories. I hope you have too.
Since episode 400, we've done a live show for each hundred episodes. Obviously, this was not an option for episode 900, so I put together some snippets from other live shows. What Made Milwaukee Famous' Michael Kincaid explains himself from ep. 15 Live at Momo's, AJ Vallejo talks us through the Vallejo label shuffle from ep 182 Live at Strange Brew, Suzanna Choffel & Nakia talk about being on The Voice from ep. 400 Live from The Townsend, Kathy Valentine talks about the magic of being in a band and winning over an audience from ep. 415 Live at The Townsend, Suzanna Choffel talks about Jem and the Holograms with Nakia and AJ Vallejo from ep. 500 Live at The Townsend, AJ Vallejo and Nakia talk metal and Alabama from ep. 600 Live at The Townsend, Acey Monaro (Go Fever) tells a crazy story about El Paso while Ray Prim, Laurie Gallardo and Nöelle Hampton react to her bad decisions from ep. 800 Live at Cosmic Coffee + Beer.
Again, thank you so much for listening. I'm going to keep on bringing you stories from your favorite artists, introducing you to artists and spreading the word of music as long as I possible can. This show is, has and will always be available for free. However, if you would like to kick in a little something for all of the work, you can contribute here: Johnny's PayPal it is always appreciated. Let's get down!

Hello friends! I hope you're all safe and healthy while sheltering at home. Legendary music journalist, co-founder and editor of No Depression magazine, Peter Blackstock joins me for episode 899! As a writer for the Austin American-Statesman, Peter has been busy keeping folks up on who's live streaming and when since the closure of clubs almost two weeks ago. Find him at austin360.com or follow him at @blackstock360 on Twitter. We have a great conversation about growing up in Austin and the scene in the mid-80's and early 90's, moving to Seattle at the dawn of Grunge, co-founding No Depression magazine and what it meant to Americana, life under quarantine and much more! I am a fan of Peter's work and I had a great time getting to know him. I'm sure you will too. 
Usually the 99th episode of the hundred is a mixtape I make of artists that have been on the show in the last hundred episodes. I skipped that this year to keep the conversations coming during our collective quarantine. However, I made a Spotify playlist with over two hours of music from artists that have been on the show in the last 99 episodes!!! Music from artists like Little Mazarn,  Mobely, Fastball, Sydney Wright, Shinyribs, Kydd Jones, The Deer, Brownout, William Harries Graham, Calliope Musicals, DAYEATER and many more! Listen HERE!
