Red Jacket Mine and Brown Paper Tickets

Beware the Halloweed! That’s the message this Halloween day from the Denver police, who claim that hooligans are lacing Halloween candy with weed. Just another thing to be afraid of. That’s why we’re going “Trunk” or Treating, a new candy-gathering fad that seems even weirder than the traditional one.

Marty and crew discuss another new fad – expiring marriage licenses. That’s right, you have to re-up every 5 years in order to remain betrothed. Get ready to dial 1-800-Flowers a few times in year 4.

And then Marty is shocked to discover that the President of Burkina Faso has stepped down, vacating his palace in Ouagadougou. Is that the Ouagadougou that’s just outside Van Nuys? In other words, we are stunned by our geographical ignorance yet again.

Our musical guests today – straight from the Ozarks, we discover – Red Jacket Mine harkens back to the best of the 70s, 80s and more. We mean that as a compliment, so let’s just say 70s, early-80s and no more. Come see Red Jacket Mine celebrate the release of their fantastic new CD “Pure Delight” on November 15 at the High Dive in Fremont.

Can we get tickets to that through Brown Paper Tickets? Luckily we have Brown Paper Tickets CEO Steve “the butcher” Butcher of the Butcher Clan, to answer that and tell us how to minimize ticket service charges. Joining him is Jeff Leisawitz, who just produced a sweet ode to radio starring Marty Riemer and released by Brown Paper Ticket Films.
