Last week I had some great in studio guests for an even better cause. Nashville resident Trent Dabbs and Nashville cast member Sam Palladio, along with musician Colin Linden, came into the Lightning 100 studio. They chatted about writing together, ABC’s Nashville, and helped raise awareness for the victims of the Typhoon Haiyan.

It is the deadliest Phillipine Typhoon on record,killing over 6,000 people in that country alone.

We’ll miss you Fleet Foxes!
Some Rolling Stones fans have banded together and are demanding changes to the way the group tours. The Rolling Stones Liberation Front is threatening non-violent, disruptive action to get across their demands, which are:
1) WE WANT SMALLER VENUES: We believe the time has passed for gargantuan mega-arena spectaculars; hardly anything good comes from these soulless shows… The introduction of the considerably smaller B-stage set up in the middle of the venue at the end of 1994′s Voodoo Lounge tour was a perfect step toward this philosophy.
2) WE WANT LOWER TICKET PRICES: We believe it is unacceptable to charge up to $350 for a single ticket… We believe a band needing to charge $85 — $100 for upper balcony seats is a band no longer in touch with their fan base. We demand the ticket price for the next tour to be no more than $30 and without any and all service charges.
3) WE WANT A SET LIST OVERHAUL: With an immense back catalog of songs to choose from, there is no reason why The Rolling Stones need to stick to roughly the same 30 songs for every tour… We demand the following songs not to be played on the next tour: “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Brown Sugar,” “Honky Tonk Women,” “Start Me Up,” “Sympathy for the Devil.”
4) WE WANT THE ELIMINATION OF THE HORN SECTION AND BACK-UP SINGERS: We believe The Rolling Stones have drifted too far from the true and basic rock and roll aesthetic. It’s time to bring it back, back at least to the hugely successful 1978 Some Girls tour.
5) WE WANT THE EXPULSION OF ALL OPENING ACTS: We believe The Rolling Stones have stopped challenging themselves. There was a time when they would bring an opening band talented enough to challenge the Stones themselves, who, in turn, would have to step it up even further… How challenging can it be to follow Third Eye Blind? How challenging can it be to follow Jonny Lang or the damn Spin Doctors?
6) WE WANT ALL FANS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEMSELVES: We believe the fault also lies with fans willing to do the bidding of their favorite band, no matter the cost. How many suckers does it take to fill an auditorium? Ask The Rolling Stones… We urge all self-respecting Rolling Stones fans to heed our warnings and join our ranks. Don’t be taken for granted… Why give them more of our money and then settle for the usual? We won’t.
The Stones still haven’t announced their plans for their 50th anniversary. As for the demands, a spokeswoman for the Stones was unavailable for comment.

2011 was a great year for music!
I went through all the videos from bands and artists that performed on my show this year and was blown away by all the great memories!
One I will remember for the rest of my life was THE DOOBIE BROTHERS asking me to sing BLACK WATER. In the middle of the performance! Unreal. Thank god I was basically in key…or this would not be the first video in my Best of 2011!
This Nashville based band put out one of my favorite albums in 2011. I had the pleasure of having them perform this track LOST BOY on my show. Pick up a copy of THE APACHE RELAY album AMERICAN NOMAD today at Grimey’s New & Preloved Music.
How about getting THE CIVIL WARS on my show! Such a pleasure getting this intimate performance of BARTON HOLLOW from Joy Williams and John Paul White. Life is good!
When NICKEL CREEK said, farewell for now, we all knew we would get some superb music from the gang, as they explored solo projects and new groups. Chris Thile seems to really be enjoying himself here with his new band, THE PUNCH BROTHERS. This recording is coming from two room mics. Simply amazing.
MOON TAXI – I love this Nashville band. It’s been so much fun watching them grow into the stars they have yet to become. Their new album CABARET drops in the beginning of February. 2012 will be the year of MOON TAXI!
I guess for now, this will be a top 5 but there are dozens more. This link will take you to the beginning of the year on our youtube page.
Thanks for listening and cheers to an awesome 2011!
This method of cooking the turkey is from the San Francisco Fire Department in the 1960′s. I’ve never cooked a turkey any other way, and I’ve Never had it fail. Moist and Sweet, easy to carve, with plenty of juice for gravy.
Knowing that your turkey will be done to perfection in Three Hours takes all the guess-work out of planning your meal. Want to eat at 4pm? put your bird in the oven at 12:30p (the extra 1/2-hour allows time for the turkey to Rest for 20 minutes before carving).
(although the instructions appear to be lengthy, the method itself is very simple. I just wanted to make it as clear as possible. )
15 – 22 lb turkey
Turkey truss-ers (I don’t know what to call them – those sharp pointy skewers) and kitchen string
Large paper grocery bag
Lawry’s Garlic Salt (or any “california style” garlic salt will do)
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Preparing the Turkey:
About one hour before before you plan to put the bird in the oven:
o remove giblets from cavities (*if using a frozen turkey, see note below).
o rinse turkey, inside and out, under cold running water removing fatty deposits from the cavities, and any pin feathers.
o Using old bath towels, thoroughly dry turkey inside and out.
o If you stuff your bird, do so now and truss. (note: No matter what your stuffing recipe instructs, you don’t need to add liquid to your dressing. Leave it dry or you might have mush. Trust me.)
o If you do not stuff your bird, place whole onions, apples, and/or other veggies in cavities, and truss.
o Generously spread shortening on entire outside of bird (skin must be dry or shortening will not stick).
o Generously sprinkle garlic salt over bird.
o okay… this part takes two people (**see my method below): Stand paper grocery bag in roasting pan and put bird into bag and, folding over the end of bag once or twice, staple shut.
o Lay bagged bird breast-side-up in pan making sure that the paper bag doesn’t hang over the edges of the pan.
o Press bag closely against turkey. Using more shortening, grease outside of bag. Any spot left ungreased (especially those not touching turkey) will burn and you will lose some of your juices.
o Place turkey into preheated 500 degree oven and set timer for One Hour. It is Very Important that you do Not open the oven door for the next Three hours. Guard oven carefully against nosy guests – Duct Tape it shut if you have to. (lol)
o After One Hour, lower oven setting to 400 degrees, and re-set timer for One Hour.
o One Hour later, lower oven setting to 300 degrees, and re-set timer for One Hour.
Ding Ding Ding… Remove bird from oven; wait a bit, and then gently tear paper bag from top of turkey. Invite everyone into kitchen to ooh and ahh… take a bow.
o After 20 minutes of rest, move turkey to carving board, and do what you do.
*Frozen Turkey must be thoroughly defrosted. No ice inside, no frozen leg joints. This method will fail otherwise.
**Bring a kitchen chair to the counter and place your roasting pan on it. Stand the large grocery bag in pan. Have your helper (men are so handy) lift the turkey and slide it into the bag. It’s easiest to staple the bag shut at this point. Lay bagged turkey breast-side-up into pan.
I would love to hear from you if you try this method. It makes cooking the turkey Fun!

It’s Sunday now. Our last day at Bonnaroo. It has flown by again! I’ve been backstage missing most of the shows. I kind of have my own private Bonnaroo going on though, so there are no complaints! Right now Widespread Panic just stopped by for a backstage performance. Their bass player, Dave Schools, will be doing a short interview directly after. Sounding amazing!! We also have our fingers crossed that Robert Plant will have time to stop by! G Love, Galactic, Cold War Kids, and Bruce Hornsby are all stopping by as well. Life is good!
Saturday update! They will not be up for long, but I have permission to stream the Backstage at Bonnaroo performances this weekend. So soak them up and enjoy! There are a lot of cool new bands that you will be hearing about in the future. Plus some favorites from bands you already love! I’ll continue to add them here with information today and tomorrow. Enjoy!
This is your good friend, Lt. Dan. Working backstage at Bonnaroo 2011!
