Wednesday Morning Music Shuffle - Gratitude Mix



Short and Sweet. In spite of Because of all of the difficulties of this year, I am more aware than ever of the reasons I have to be grateful.   In a randomly shuffled way - that will be my focus today....

Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle - Pitch Black Mix



As with many people, my mind is consumed with thoughts of what has happened and is happening in Ferguson, Missouri and what it says about us as a nation - as human beings.... I am not one of those who thinks he has all the answers... in fact there are just a few things I think I know.... repeated and systemic injustice creates situations where violence flourishes.  Violence and Hate are never the answer.  Peace and Love always are the answer.  Justice must proceed peace.  We are one world and one people. We really need to work on losing this idea of them vs. us.

Coincidently, we begin today's random shuffle with a cover of  Gil Scott-Heron song, but not the one I've seen others posting today...

Monday Morning Music Shuffle - Mister Jarmusch Mix



The first of only three shuffles this week before I head off for Thanksgiving.  We have to cover as much ground as we can in a short time... We begin with a relatively short (7 song) shuffle that manages to cover a wide range - geographically, musically, lyrically, and thematically.

Friday Morning Music Shuffle - Live My Life Mix



So another week of Ear to the Ground Shuffles comes to a close.  I am a bit short on time so I thought I would try something... a 3 Words post.  I will attempt to comment on each song using just three words. This may be more time consuming than writing a long post, but here goes nothing...

Have a great weekend!

Wednesday Morning Music Shuffle - Roots Reality Mix



I had the great pleasure last night of venturing to one my favorite spots in East Nashville - The Family Wash for their regular Tuesday night Short Sets, and I got to see Joe Nolan perform.  He has been featured a couple of times recently here at E2TG, and it was great to hear him play live and to finally meet him in person...

Due to some unforeseen and unfortunate events, I am shorter than usual on time for today's shuffle...   So let's do what we can with what we have to work with... a stunningly diverse and awesome shuffle today...

Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle - Yacht Mix



Last week, one of the daily shuffles was heavily weighted toward Blues music.  Today, things turn more in a Country direction.  Of course this is Ear to the Ground, so it's never cut and dry...
