For Columbus folks who missed out on the Bill Fox show at the Treehouse last Saturday, or if you were there and just want to relive, it, the technologically talented Scott Johnson managed to record a few songs from the set. Enjoy.

In other Fox news… a pdf of that legend-furthering Believer piece by Joe Hagan can now be downloaded at Hagan’s website here. Fox had previously requested it not be on the Internet. In the piece, you’ll see Hagan reference an archive of a radio show with Fox. I dug around and found it here. It’s a gem. On a 1998 episode of KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic hosted by Nic Harcourt, you can hear Fox play a few untitled and/or unreleased songs (like “Ode to Charlie Rose”), “Pastures of Plenty” by Woody Guthrie, “My Baby Crying” off Transit Byzantium and “Junked Lot Serenade” off Shelter from the Smoke.

    Thanks so much for this! What program are you using to listen to the KCRW show? Every time I try to open it gives me an error message.

    • Joel Oliphint

      Yeah, it’s a RealPlayer file… I had to download and update RealPlayer to get it to work.

    wow. the Treehouse is probably the worst place to see a show, even a not-as-crowded-as-it-should’ve-been type of show. open a window folks.
