Welcome to another hillbilly episode of The Big Enchilada podcast. We’re going out west to enjoy a heaping platter of chicken-fried roadrunner smothered in coyote gravy at the mythical Roadrunner Roadhouse, where cowboys, cowgirls and other cow beings dance to the sweet hillbilly sounds that pour out of a jukebox that never stops. As the late, great cowboy hipster Kell Robertson used to say, “Come on in, it’s cool and dark inside.”
And remember, The Big Enchilada still is officially listed in the iTunes store
. So go subscribe, if you haven’t already (and gimme a good rating and review if you’re so inclined.) Thanks.

It’s the first Big Enchilada of the new year and the new decade. Everyone get ready to rock. And someone, change that diaper!
OK, once again this is not really a Christmas podcast. I included just enough Christmas songs to make you smash your head against the bathroom river, not enough to chop off your own head. Besides, fans of this kind of music got some bad news right before I started working on this: Roy Loney, a founding member of The Flamin’ Groovies died. So there’s a rocking Roy tribute right in the middle of the show
Over the river and through the woods to The Big Enchilada we go! Here’s a Thanksgiving feast of crazy rock ‘n’ roll that can help you overcome your tryptophan daze. I hope you count The Big Enchilada and Radio Mutation among your many blessings.
(This is the first Thanksgiving podcast I’ve done since 2011. Enjoy that masterpiece, titled “Jive Turkeys”, HERE)
Once again it’s Halloween and once again The Big Enchilada takes you on a journey into the heart of supernatural terror where monsters lurk and creatures slither. You’ll hear songs full of ghosts, zombies, vampires and all sorts of creepy stuff. Hang on!
