The second weekend of July is upon us and once again it's time for the
All Memphis Music Specialty Show. This week is the new CD from Todd Snider, called "The Excitement Plan". Todd is an
All Memphis Music favorite as the requests for Todd's songs (especially "Beer Run" and "Alright Guy") continually flood in.
Todd's new CD is another great assortment of songs that champion the overlooked and under appreciated for more than 15 years. The CD was produced by the legendary Don Was, (he produced Bob Dylan,The Rolling Stones, Bob Seeger, BB King and many more) and Todd describes the making of the CD as one of his all-time favorite accomplishments.
We'll play the CD almost in it's entirety and we know you're gonna love it.
Todd came to Memphis in the early 90's in search of Memphis singer/songwriter Keith Sykes. Keith is another favorite and much played artist on www.AllMemphisMusic.com . Todd found Keith............Keith introduced Todd to Jimmy Buffet and soon, Todd's first album was released on Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville label in the fall of 1994.. It was called "Songs For The Daily Planet"(a Memphis club where Todd perfected the songs that appeared on the album). It was, and still is, a brilliant collection of songs from start to finish.....and had 2 Top 5 Requested tracks, simultaneously at Rock and AAA radio....."Alright Guy" and the "hidden track ", "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues"
It was from Memphis that Todd burst on to the national scene and although Todd no longer lives in Memphis............the bond between Todd and Memphis is as strong as ever.
The All Memphis Music Specialty Show will air this Friday night, July 10th at 10:00 PM (CST Memphis Time) and rebroadcast on Saturday morning July 11th at 10:00AM (CST Memphis Time).
