About this Episode

The Song: “Hold Your iPod To Your Heart” written by Tom Adamson 2009. In this episode you’ll hear two versions: the full length is from the 2011 LP “Vanity Project” by Tom Adamson and the Texarkana Two; clips also appear from the 2010 DIY project “O Indiana.” Heard in the intro are strains of the song “Every Time I Sing” also from Vanity Project.
(The Texarkana Two: Steve Trathen bass guitar, Jason Monroe drums)

The Friend: I met Dan Hawthorne in Rensselaer, Indiana in the mid-00s. We hit it off having similar musical tastes and similar senses of humor. Dan is a big believer in the music his friends write. You can hear more of us at the website for “The New Old Distillery” songwriters collective.
