A note regarding Walt’s latest opus:
Courage My Love has made their version of ‘I Sell Comics’ available for sale here
CML’s plan is to raise enough money from sales of the song to defray/cover the cost of travel so they can join us for our live show this coming October in some capacity. Whether that means they serve as the opening act for the Jay & Bob Get Old/Tell ‘Em Steve Dave show at the Count Basie or perform at an after-party has yet to be determined. The song costs a minimum of .99 but if you want to spend a little more to help them reach their goal of raising the travel money, that’s up to you good sirs/madams.
While CML’s cover of ‘I Sell Comics’ is pretty great, we’d be remiss to not share the roughly 15 other entries which are remarkable in their own right and our musical peeps worked so hard on. (heh, heh…hard on) Anyway, rather than attaching variations of the same song to the end of the TESD for the next few months, I’ll be contacting the artists who were good enough to take the time and make the effort to see if they’d be amenable to taking part in an ‘I Sell comics’ compilation album on Bandcamp which we’d then offer to listeners. Stay tuned for more info.
While I have your ear…

A few highlights of this exclusive pod are Walt’s gonna read the lyrics to a song he’s composing for his wife & I’ll relate a story of terrorizing an asshole neighbor when I was in 8th grade which will leave you questioning my sanity…and possibly my sexuality.
