Episode Forty-Five - Hozier to Stryper

Holy cow, today’s episode of the Seven Notes of Separation Podcast will lift you up!!  We go to church for my mom, as she sent in the Hozier tune, Take Me To Church.  It seems like an easy connection to connect a song about church to a Stryper song, but Byron Alzamora made it tough on us this week when he sent in the Stryper classic, To Hell With The Devil, to close out episode 45.  Leading the congregation today from song one to song seven will be Europe, Rival Sons, and Don Dokken.  Please, join us!!!!

Episode Forty-Four - Blue Murder to Howard Jones

We have a bit of an 80’s extravaganza on episode 44 of the Seven Notes of Separation Podcast…only one song is NOT from the 1980’s this week.  We start with a gem from Blue Murder.  Jelly Roll opens episode 44 for friend of the show, David Cathey.  Closing out episode 44 is an amazing pop song from Howard Jones.  No One Is To Blame and Amanda Burke knows this as she sent in our show closer today.  In order to connect Blue Murder to Howard Jones, we’re going to use Peter Gabriel, Edie Brickell, and AC/DC.  Won’t you join us??

Episode Forty-Three - The Oak Ridge Boys to Pantera

If there was ever a Seven Notes of Separation Podcast episode that surprised me, it’s this one.  We start Episode 43 with a song from Indiana’s own Bill Novack, who wanted to hear Elvira by The Oak Ridge Boys.  Our friend, DJ Higgins, requested we raise the bar for the show closer and bring the heat…so we close with Five Minutes Alone by Pantera.  If you’re gonna connect The Oak Ridge Boys to Pantera, you’re gonna need help.  Thankfully Eddie Money, Geddy Lee, and Steve Jordan give us the help we need to make this show memorable and possible…check it out!!!

Episode Forty-Two- The Monkees to Rush

A varied roster today as we start the Seven Notes of Separation Podcast with Goin’ Down by The Monkees for my hometown buddy, Jason Webb.  Our show closer goes to the man who shares our content more than anyone else in the world, David Cathey, who wanted to hear Superconductor by Rush.  Connecting The Monkees to Rush was a challenge, but Stevie Ray Vaughan, Iggy Pop, and Run DMC give us all the help we need.  Don’t be afraid…good stuff in this one!!!

Episode Forty - CSN to Run DMC

We go over the hill (and out to sea) this week with Episode 40 of the Seven Notes of Separation Podcast.  For song one we take a trip with CSN to see the Southern Cross…that one was sent in by my sister, Carey Bennett.  The final song today is going to be tricky…actually.  It’s Tricky by Run DMC, sent in by back-to-back contributor and still a Seven Notes Of Separation All-Star, Gayle Zech.  Connecting CSN to Run DMC requires help from Ron Nevison, Jake E. Lee, and Bruce Kulick.  Join us each and every episode to see if we can make the connections once again this week!!!
