The best songs from Steve’s year of writing a song-a-week for Jim Hightower’s radio talk show.
In 1998-99, Steve was writing a song-a-week for Hightower Radio, hosted by beloved Austin hellraiser Jim Hightower. Every Wednesday, he performed a new tune live, broadcast on more than 100 stations coast to coast. From Bill Clinton to Bill Gates, his first foray into political satire was a comic warm-up for the Dubya years. This disc collects 12 of his best. Some of them, like I Wanna Get a Nuclear Weapon and The Great Divide, remain as timely as ever.
(Note: This CD is out of print, but it’s still available as a MP3 download. Upon ordering the album, you’ll receive a download link by email.)
“Like Woody Guthrie in the ‘Thirties, Steve entertains us and informs us at the same time.”
– Jim Hightower
