2016.01.05 – POD – National Bird Day
Featuring We Are Birds by Chris Ayer
Today, 5 January 2016, is National Bird Day. A day to honor our feathered friends. I don’t have much to say about this day “for the birds”. You can find out more about this day at the National Bird Day Website.
It seems appropiate to play We Are Birds from a singer, songwriter and actor, Chris Ayer. You can find, friend and follow Chris at the links below.
Remember to support the independent artists by buying thier music and merchandise. Additionally, you can help them by simpley spreading the word about their music.
2016.01.04 – POD – Blue Monday, The Most Depressing Day of the Year
Featureing I Don’t Want to Work Today Music of Beatnik Turtle
Today is the first Monday of 2016 and it is, allegedly, the most depressing day of the year. This unofficial holiday is called Blue Monday. This day is celebrated annually on the first Monday of each year unless New Year’s Day happens to fall on a Monday.
However, one should note that there is no evidence that it actually the most depressing day. In fact, there is debate as to whether it should be the second or third Monday of January.

Pick Of The Day John Christopher Thomas
Hello indienation listeners Cleta is bringing you todays pick of the day and since today is April 5th 2012 and it is One day without shoes day. I thought this song Feet Don’t Fail Me Now was very fitting for this day it is from the very talented John Christopher Thomas This was quoted from his bio at reverbnation.com
Born in Omaha Nebraska and raised in San Antonio Texas, John began playing piano at seven. His style developed in his early teens, while studying jazz piano. During the mid-80’s, John began to work with a variety of bands playing rock, funk, blues and fusion music. In 1991, after completing his Bachelor’s degree in art, John moved to South Korea to teach English. He eventually joined a Korean group called Joybox, whose pop single “Special” made it to #23 in the K-Pop charts in 2000. Now adding acoustic guitar to his instruments, John had hundreds of recorded demos to tweak and develop. After completing his MA back in San Antonio, he created the short-live blog “Sweaty Monk.com”, to express the difficulty of those following an individual creative path. Constantly recording in his makeshift home studio, he was able to record tunes that reflected his earlier musical roots of low-fi indie songs with slight touches of folk and world.
I really dig this song I hope you enjoy it as well.

Christmas Music, One Last Show
Some material may not be considered safe for work (NSFW), children and arachnids over 3 feet tall
Cleta, Knowles217, OmniDragon and Lumpy were still up for spinning some Christmas music. This one, as well is about the music and not talk. We didn’t cover any news. We simply spun Christmas music and told you what we played. We hope you all had a great holiday season last year and hope you are starting off having a great new year. Enjoy the last in the Podcast of Christmas here at indienation.fm
What Did You Do on Christmas? We did another “Podcast of Christmas !”
For Lumpy, Christmas is for the children. My family celebrates it on Christmas Eve and I spent most of my Christmas Day organizing Christmas Music. This podcast originally streamed live on Christmas Day, it is Christmas Music with only a tad bit of chat in between. Merry Christmas and enjoy: Special kudos and thanks to Cleta and Knowles217 for joining me on this holiday special. Here is a list of what we played in three and half hour show.
One of our staff thought this was the best music news of the year.. Cleta may be right. Merry Christmas All!

Greetings Indie Nation listeners,
Yes, it is that time of the year again where the malls and stores will deafen you with the same thirty versions of six Christmas songs. To be honest, Lumpy feels more like Scrooge this year and is having a hard time getting in the spirit. The reasons are pretty simple:
- They started the Christmas music before Halloween
- They are playing the same music year after year in the same order
- I don’t have a job
- They are setting up multiple Santas at the exits, asking money for multiple causes… man the kids are going to be confused… it is worse than all the Krishna’s at the airport
- Last and largest, THERE IS NO SNOW
No Christmas Music?
I don’t know how they do you in your retail hood but here in Cleveland, stores were shoving Christmas music in your ears the Friday before Halloween… Next thing you know they will be putting out the Easter shit the day after Christmas. Apparently, Lumpy is not the only one sick of it.
Halloween Themed LumpCast
I decided to to another Halloween themed, eclectic genre podcast. I played:
