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!
