With this episode, this may be the closest that Terry gets to answer that dreaded question of many music fans out there, "What's your favorite album?"  The discussion for this episode turns to the 1994 release from Jeff Buckley entitled Grace.  Terry highlights some of the behind-the-scenes stories and talks about a few of his favorite songs off the album in hopes of explaining why this solitary release from Jeff Buckley was such a defining moment in music as a whole and not just another great album from 1994.

If you would like to learn more about Jeff Buckley, please seek out our YouTube playlist for this episode.  The podcast can be found on iTunes (please feel free to subscribe and comment there) and flickeringwaves.com  There is also a Flickering Waves Facebook group page and Twitter account (@flickeringwaves).  Episode 10 will not come out until September but there will be an end-of-summer mini-episode coming out for Labor Day weekend.

Hurricane Charley will be remembered for many things by the people who experienced its wrath when it made landfall on Friday, August 13th, 2004.  Leave it to Terry to find some personal yet pop culture connection to it as he discusses Ryan Adams' album Love Is Hell also from 2004 (well, not exactly 2004).  That little release date question is just the beginning of a discussion that is part weather report and part album review.

The next episode also has connection to that bummer summer of 2004.  But it came to everyone in 1994 and it is Jeff Buckley's Grace which will celebrate a 20th anniversary later this month.

Episodes of the podcast are available through flickeringwaves.com as well as iTunes where one can also subscribe and comment about the podcast.  There also connections to be made via Facebook, Twitter and YouTube so please check them out.

Terry here...I'm wrapping the She & Him/M. Ward discussion (for now) with an overview of the She & Him show in Nashville from 2013 and two of the M. Ward shows from earlier this year.  I can honestly say that the whole story isn't here but the largely tangential parts left out should come in handy for inspiring other episodes of the podcast.  I talk about one of their hard-to-find videos as well as two important members of the She & Him and M. Ward touring bands, Scott McPherson and Mike Coykendall as well as some other odds-and-ends that conclude this love letter of sorts to two of my favorite musical experiences that are out there today.

I strongly recommend checking out the YouTube playlist for this episode.  And if you are on Facebook or Twitter, you can join the Flickering Waves Podcast group page and follow us @flickeringwaves respectively to get direct links to the YouTube playlists and anything else that might strike our fancy.  Finally, if you are downloading this from iTunes, please subscribe and/or comment about the podcast.  Check back in with Episode 8 which will feature a discussion of Ryan Adams' Love Is Hell.
