052 - "With God On Our Side"
Sign on the Window isn't the Bob Dylan podcast you need, but it's definitely the one that you want! Each week we select a Dylan song at random, live with the song for a week (or two) and then get together to discuss. This week is Dylan's classic, "With God on Our Side" from 1964.  This week we listen a few versions of the song through the years(6:20), its relation to "The Patriot Game" (19:00), before breaking down what Dylan is trying to achieve verse-by-verse (28:35).

Words & Guitar - 097 - "Ironclad"
Words & Guitar continues to understand we aren't the Sleater-Kinney podcast you need, while striving to remain the one that you want! In case you forgot: each episode, we randomly select a Sleater-Kinney song, live with the song for a week (or two) and then get together to discuss. This week, episode 97, "Ironclad" off 2000's All Hands on the Bad One.  We discuss the song's context (4:00) and comparisons to The Hot Rock and Dig Me Out; Daniel talks us through the Monitor-Merrimack ironclad battle referenced in the song (8:45) and talk about the song itself as metaphor and guide for your daily life (17:00).

Mixed Up Confusion (The Cranberries)
The first Mixed Up Confusion of 2018 isn't one that we planned for or hoped to do. Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries passed away on January 15, 2018. Hugely influential in Kelly's life, we couldn't not talk about them. Perhaps it's best to note the times for the music we play for you to try to get the gist of how we approached our week of listening. We began with "Empty" (8:05), "Zombie" (12:45), "Copycat" (16:50), "Salvation" (26:00), "I Shot John Lennon" (28:30), "Dreams" (30:15), "Wake Up and Smell the Coffee" (35:00) and "Roses" (41:30).

043 - "Sara"
Sign on the Window is the Bob Dylan podcast that you need but maybe not the one you want. Every week we select a Bob Dylan song at random, live with it, then come back to talk about it. This week: "Sara" off 1976's Desire.  Daniel and Kelly dive deep into Sara and Bob. She's one of those cornerstones on which Dylan, the singer-songwriter at least, rests and we've talked about her circuitously, so why not just dive in? We talk Sara, Bob, the lyrics, what constitutes a love song, and how DESIRE and Scarlet Rivera can seemingly never falter in Kelly's ears.  As always, full show notes at our website.

Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas from Sign on the Window! This Christmas, unwrap our (and your) newest tradition. We dive into Bob Dylan's 2009 Christmas in the Heart.  In contrasting this deeply misunderstood record, we cast Dylan up against the heavyweights of North Pole karaoke bars: Gladys Knight and the Pips, Destiny's Child, Christina Aguilera, Dean Martin, Dolly Parton, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and Nat King Cole - to name a few.  To follow along, please head over to Spotify for our Christmas 2017 playlist.

Mixed Up Confusion (True Crime for "Hollis Brown")
Sign on the Window presents... Truuuuuuuue Crime! Spooky! Because Hollis Brown committed the unspeakable (but singable) and we didn't have room, here's what Mixed Up Confusion was created to serve! Today we talk famous cases of familicide.  We got the heavy hitters: Robert William Fisher, Bradford Bishop, Chris Benoit, Lizzy Borden. We got the historical: Abel Clemmons, Captain James Purrington, Thomas George Woolfolk. We got the early 20th century: George Hassell, Charlie Lawson. We got people too close to today that'll make you feel downright horrible. Daniel also becomes a newsie when he reads the headlines like Rosa Wurzer's from 1901: "KILLS HER SIX CHILDREN.; Crazed by Poverty, Woman Throws Them in a Well, Jumps In, and Deliberately Drowns Them." Or Edwin Stephens from 1905: "INSANE SHOTS END FAMILY. HORRIBLE TRAGEDY AT A ROSS VALLEY CHICKEN RANCH; Sickly Stephens Murders Wife and Three Children in Their Beds, Fatally Shoots Two Remaining Children, Fires at Milkman, Then Takes His Own Life." In the end, John Boecker in 1897 and Lillie May Curtis in 1938 connected (and still connects) "Ballad of Hollis Brown" to this day: "IOWA FARMER'S AWFUL ACT; John Boecker Killed His Wife and Five Children at Night and Then Committed Suicide. ANOTHER CHILD FATALLY SHOT No Motive for the Tragedy Yet Disclosed, Although It is Intimated that There Was Trouble About the Farm;" and "A mother who told officers she was ill and unable to provide for her family killed six of her nine children as they slept at a lonely farm, home near here last night, kissing each good-bye before and after shooting them."  As always, full show notes at our website.

039 - "Yea! Heavy and a Bottle of Bread"
Sign on the Window is a weekly podcast where we randomly select a Bob Dylan song, listen to it for a week, then report back. This week, we listened to “Yea! Heavy and a Bottle of Bread” from the legendary Basement Tapes (our 4th of the season).  We talk context, we talk bread and bread (6:15), we talk coded language and free-writing and the logistics of having one foot in reality and the other in a Dalí painting (20:00). Paul Williams described this as one of Dylan’s “most charming performances” and we’d have to agree. While we’d understand if this didn’t exist, we’re very happy it does exist!  As always, full show notes at our website.

But all these songs about, you know, roses growing out of people's brains and lovers who are really geese and swans are turning into angels - I mean, you know, they're not going to die. They're not folk music songs. They're political songs. They're already dead. You'd think that these traditional music people would - would gather that mystery, you know, is a traditional fact, you know, seeing as they're all so full of mystery."

037 - "Lenny Bruce"
This week at Sign on the Window, we look at the intersection of Bob Dylan and Lenny Bruce and why this song showed up on Bob's 1981 Shot of Love (18:40). It's also a great excuse for us to delve into other rabbit holes! We talk Lenny Bruce (11:00) throughout and look at his Berkeley Concert, specifically (26:30), and the history of comedy, in general. In light of what's going on in the world, this one felt as vital to talk through as any other episode.  As always, full show notes at our website.

“Aegon. Oh, I hate it so much. It’s like naming two of your kids Jerry.”  This is it! Our final episode of our Game of Thrones coverage for this season. This episode is jammed pack with goodness. Daniel makes up for lost time and delivers on Bob Dylan references he's neglected all season (and sings a few songs, acappella for now but stay tuned!). They talk similarities with the season, writing oneself into a corner, how to punt a TV show into late 2018 while everyone flexes to everyone else and nothing happens (except for poor Thoros, who flexed to a dead bear), and discuss the difference between "Your Grace" and "My Lord." And they end the run with predictions and go on the record for what is likely to be an insane push to end. Hopefully we get Winds in the interim.  Around the map: King’s Landing (5:45), Winterfell (30:30), Dragonstone (44:00), Sex Boat (45:40), The Wall and final thoughts and predictions (48:50).

They close with Moodpaint and Yellow Straps (45:50) and Nicole Atkin's "Goodnight Rhonda Lee" and the values of recording live (49:40).  As always, full show notes at our website.

022 - "Clothes Line Saga"
"Folk songs were the underground story. If someone were to ask what’s going on, 'Mr. Garfield’s been shot down, laid down. Nothing you can do. That’s what’s going on. Nobody needed to ask who Mr. Garfield was, they just nodded, they just knew.” - Bob Dylan  This week Daniel and Kelly listened to "Clothes Line Saga" off the The Basement Tapes. They talked about the recording process, the history of laundry and how to connect with this classic in a present tense.  We are a real podcast! As always, full show notes at our website.
