Settin’ The Woods on Fire #32: 40 for 40 (August 13, 2017)

It’s been a bit quiet here at Settin’ The Woods on Fire lately.  We’ve missed an episode or two.  But we’re back with our biggest episode ever!  It’s “Shameless” Amos’ 40th birthday, so he’s invited Chris Parson, one of his oldest friends, to bring in songs for an episode we’re calling “40 for 40!”  It’s almost three hours of weird stories and great music, including our introduction to the wild world of Norwegian country, so don’t you dare miss it!

Settin’ The Woods on Fire #23: Double Length Episode with A Man Called Stu! (September 16, 2016)

“Dirty” Dan Dynamite wasn’t available this month, so we called in a pinch hitter, everyone’s favorite Australian hillbilly singer, A Man Called Stu!  Stu stepped in and brought us a truckload of songs, and due to a communication error, he and “Shameless” Amos had enough to make it a double episode.  So this time around we’ve got two hours of the twangiest podcast gracing Green’s god earth, so don’t you dare miss it!

Settin’ The Woods on Fire #20: June 21, 2016

Once again, we’re late with this month’s episode of Settin’ The Woods on Fire.

This month’s episode is dedicated to the memory of Red Simpson, one of the greatest trucker troubadours in history.
