Episode 5 – Of Dogs and Gods

The naming of Dogs and Gods


  • The genius of Les Paul,  sound on sound recording, echo, and the invention of the solid bodied guitar.
  • Moog and how to pronounce it. John’s synthesizer sickness. Great synthesizer tracks.
  • Dave touches Buddy Guys Arm (no really) – it was his pickin’ arm.
  • From Dizzy Gillespie to Jimmy Hendrix, how the jazz scene and the black music scene more generally worked. Older musicians give a break to the younger generation, who learn their skills touring  then break out on their own.
  • Dave catches Jungle Fever… with noticeable results.
  • How the US sees Mexico – Speedy Gonzales. Mexican revolutionary cartoons.
