Divinyl Intervention Episode 8: File Under . . . um . . . Alt-Country, I Guess(?)
In this episode we shine the spotlight on several underappreciated artists, hoping to give them some of the exposure denied them by radio and other media outlets - - a problem perhaps caused by difficulty in categorizing artists that don't fit neatly into established "boxes" by the music industry and listening audiences.

Divinyl Intervention Episode 4: Hey, I Know That Dude!
Some guitarists are immediately recognizable by their sound, others by their playing style, and sometimes both. This episode is dedicated to such guitarists of distinction; you know the dude behind the guitar, even if you don't know the track itself. From pioneers like Dick Dale and Duane Eddy, unique rock talents like Adrian Belew and Andy Gill, and jazz stylist Stanley Jordan, there’s something here for everyone. We also include a couple surprise “appearances” that you will have to guess for yourselves.
