no previous part Part 1 of Shop song of the day series Part 2: 11/4/10 »

Hey everybody, as most of you know, the coffee lounge went out of business, but Martin sent me a PM suggesting that I continue with the “shop song of the day” in the form of a series of blog entries, which will work out better because all of the songs will be in one spot, making them easier to find and go back to. The message kinda came outa nowhere to me, which leads me to believe that some of you may have “put in a good word” for the “shop song of the day” and for this, I thank you. I know some of you may think, well this is not woodwork related, but I beg to differ. When I head out to the shop to do some work the first tool I grab is my Ipod. Music, believe it or not, plays a key role in my woodworking. It motivates like no one else can and I draw some inspiration from it and I’m sure it affects some of you the same way.

When it comes to music, I am very open minded and have a very eclectic collection. There is something for everyone. You may not like the song I pick for a particular day, but I can ALMOST guarantee you that if you stick around and keep listening, I will play something that suites you. I know what you’re thinking,haha, “Oh shut up and play the stinkin song already, sheesh!!!

I’m not to sure how this whole blog thing works, as this is my first one, so bare with me please.

This is one of my favorite bands, I have seen them so many times I lost count and most of those were right at Red Rock, I only live about 10 miles from it. Thanks for a great shop song. If your looking for something new check out Street Sweeper Social Club, they rock.

Good deal, Zeke. A lot of us enjoy your shop song of the day. I’m glad Martin has allowed you to keep it going.

I like it! Thanks for keeping it going Zeke.
Roper we were there this summer. I could not get back stage to look at the play bills from the old concerts. Zeke you would love to see the opening acts for some of the those play bills. They have some in the visitor center but I remember 15 years ago what was back stage. What a great place to see a show. The benches are made of wood. :)

Me, Like you, the first thing I turn on is the radio when I walk into the shop.
I’m glad we can keep this aspect going.
Play away Zeke
