Episode 22: Happy Hawkeye Holidays 2015, The Snow Edition



On this second episode of Christmas tunes, we steer away from the more traditional tunes, and feature more originals. And though still in the holiday tradition, these songs have a little more bite than the songs from the previous episode.

So grab your eggnog, sit back - or dance - and have yourself a corny Christmas with Iowa grown holiday tunes!

Episode 20: A Jimi Strychnine Scribner Dedication



For those of you who don't know, Jimi was head chef at The House of Bricks, which later became Streetcar 209. He has also been a regular part and supporter of the Des Moines music scene, especially the metal/hard rock scene.

I have to admit that before I started this podcast episode, I did not know who Jimi Strychnine Scribner was. But since I've worked on it, I've come to realize that this is my lost.

Jimi does seem to rub some people the wrong way, but he is cared for and beloved by a great many more.

To contribute, go to
https://www.gofundme.com/3r6jkbss
Unfortunately, that hasn't prevented him from getting cancer. But the Des Moines scene has come to his rescue with a GoFundMe project and a benefit show at Lefty's at 5 pm and 9 pm on Sat, Nov 21.

And to help promote these benefits, I present a podcast of artists who know Jimi and/or performing on the show. I also have people who have written about Jimi and what he means to them and the Des Moines music scene.

You can read those here - The Jimi Strychnine Written Dedications

​ Episode 17 - A Joe Lawler Dedication



​If you don't know who Joe Lawler is, you're either not part of the central Iowa music scene or extremely out of it.

Joe recently quit, after 10 years, as the music reporter for Juice and The Des Moines Register, to concentrate on raising his family.

Many, on Facebook and elsewhere, have said their good byes and wished him well. But I felt he needed a little more.

So I put together this episode, using an article he wrote as a farewell, Joe Lawler's 12 favorite music moments with Juice, as inspiration, as well as asking a few folks from the Des Moines music scene to write a few words and choose a song to dedicate to Joe.

I couldn't get the rights to a few of the songs, so they aren't on the podcast. But I did include a video or audio embed in the blog post.

To read what everyone had to say about Joe and his Iowa-related favorite moments, go here - http://iowamusicshowcasesongs.blogspot.com/search/label/Joe%20Lawler%20Dedication

So, Joe, my fellow family man, comic book nerd, and music geek, this is for you...



For more information, click on the song or artists....

Opening - Juice song
Extra 1 - "Golddigger" by Murder Earth (Chad Taylor's dedication)
Song 1 - "Rhinemaidens" by The Envy Corps
Song 2 - "Infestation" by Dead Horse Trauma
Song 3 - "The Greatest Record Ever In The History of Pop Music" by Christopher the Conquered (Patrick Fleming's dedication)
Song 4 - "Pain" by La Strange
Song 5 - "Anthem" by The Maytags (Brian Campos's dedication)
Extra 2 - "Disconnect the Dots" by Of Montreal (Amedeo Rossi's dedication)
Song 6 - "Fuck Joe Lawler" by $trick9 / Song 7 - "Joe vs $trick9" by Joe Lawler
Closing - Juice song 2

Episode 16 - Lipstick Homicide Retrospective, Part 3 of 3



And here, at last, is the long awaited conclusion of our ongoing saga of three high school friends from the small town of Coralville, Iowa, trying to hit the big times in the turbulent world of pop punk...

For Part One, go here. And for Part Two, go there.

When we last left, our intrepid trio, they had become North American superstars, bringing their feisty brand of pop punk to The Ottawa Explosion in Canada!

They also met their HUGE fan and supporter, Dan OlderMusicGeek, who would play a bit of a role in their lives.

And they reached a pinnacle hard to beat, by opening up for their idols, Green Day!

Where do they go from there?

Well, Europe, actually. Unfortunately, after months of hunting, asking, and begging, I have found no video or audio of that time!

But they also did a great and wonderful show, OlderMusicGeek's 50th Birthday Bash! Unfortunately, there is also no video or audio of this event!

But we do have some music from various side projects, including on from Luke! Yes, for once, in this whole retrospective, we actually have a side project of Luke's!

We do, also, have some live Lipstick Homicide music from a few festivals including an acoustic set they did!

So sit back, listen, and enjoy, as in Part 3, we cover, for the most parts, their activities from 2013, 2014, and 2015.

To read more about each song and what others had to say about them, you can go here.


For more information, click on the song or artists....

Episode 15 - Iowa Metal and Hard Rock


This is actually the second show to feature metal music. And I have more than enough material and suggestions to do another show. And I'm okay with that.

If other music sites willfully and thoughtlessly ignore a whole genre that has quite a big following, Iowa Music Showcase is ready to take up the slack.

That being said, if anyone is thinking about it, I highly recommend you start up a Iowa metal/hard rock podcast. The listeners are there. The last metal show I did is still my most listened to episode,

And as I said, I have plenty of metal and hard rock bands that want me to play their music!

So the supply and demand is both out there! And I'd be more than willing to lend a hand! So some intrepid metalhead, go show the world and internet what Iowa has on this front!

So, anyway, at least for another episode, here once again is some of Iowa's current crop of metal and hard rock.

Episode 14 - Lipstick Homicide Retrospective, Part 2 of 3


This is Part 2. You can find Part 1 here.

In part one, we covered Lipstick Homicide going from a high school band into a real, serious band. In part two, we see them begin to get some recognition. Go from a local band to one recognized and loved throughout the country, and even into Canada!

This episode mostly covers them, for the most part, in the years 2011 and 2012. This is when I started to get to know them.

I talked already about when I met them here and here.

And being entralled with them as I was, I invited them to play at the first and best show I ever put together, The Other T Party, a charity show for Des Moines' transgender support group, Transformations Iowa.

Unfortunately, I don't have any video or audio of this show.

But I was so excited and nervous. And they were so nice and under- standing. They gave me their "Isn't It Glorious" cd and one of their infamous pink taco t-shirts too.

And it was around this time, I learned and realized that they weren't just awesome musicians, but also really sweet and wonderful human beings.

And it seems almost everybody who knows them has nothing but nice things to say about them.

So I am quite happy to be able to present this retrospective as a way to pay back all the kindness they have shown me and their other fans.

To read more about each song and what others had to say about them, you can go here.

Epsiode 13: Iowa Folk and Acoustic Music


Iowa has had a long and strong folk scene, from its earliest days as a territory, up to the 21st century with the likes of Greg Brown among others.

Why does Iowa feel such a strong attraction to these laid-back musicians without the pounding and thumping of other aggressive genres? Is it because it reflects the laid-back, contemplative nature of the Iowan people? Heck! I don't know!

I do know that we Iowans like our folk musicians and have them playing in all sorts of coffeehouses, meeting halls, barns, and back yards throughout the state.

In this episode, Iowa Music Showcase becomes your virtual coffeehouse or meeting hall as we present 8 Iowa artists continuing our proud folk tradition.

Episode 12: Lipstick Homicide Retrospective, Part 1 of 3



"Lipstick Homicide, this is your life!"

Okay, most of you young'uns won't get that joke. And this isn't about their life so much as their music career. But I just couldn't past the chance to say that!

Seriously though, with Rachel leaving her hometown of Coralville for the bright lights of Minneapolis, it seem like a good time to look over the career of Lipstick Homicide.

So similiar to the show "This Is Your Life", this episode features friends and collaborators of Lipstick Homicide talking about the band. Part 1 featuring pretty much the work they did in 2009 and 2010. Just click here to see what the folks all said or on each song to see what they had to say there.

I hope you find a few surprises and treats you weren't expecting or didn't know about!

A big thanks to Trevor Treiber, long time friend of Rachel, Kate, and Luke, for all the help he gave me on getting this all together. Go check out his band, The Blendours!

Also, thanks to KRUI and Griffle TV for letting use their recordings of Lipstick Homicide live.

Finally, there will be a separate episode between each part of this retrospective. Not everyone is a fan of pop punk, and I want to still give them something to listen to. So Part 2 will be appearing around the end of July.

Episode 11: Guest Producer Bryon Dudley


Bryon Dudley got this opportunity because he won a contest, but now I've decided to open to anybody and anyone interested! If you would like to pick the music for an episode, feel free to send a list of 15-30 minutes worth of music by Iowa artists, of ANY genre or decade, to iowamusicshowcase@gmail.com.  And if I can get permission from the artists, I will play your list on a future episode!

If you haven't heard of Bryon Dudley, then you probably aren't very involved in the central Iowa, or at least Ames, music scene, Byron, usually along with his wife Rachel, is, and has been in numerous bands here.

But besides being a talented and prolific musician, Byron runs the record label, Nova Labs. He also runs a recording studio, The Spacement. And if that's not enough, he is also one of the co-owners of The Iowa Music Store!

So I feel it is both appropriate and an honor to have Bryon as my first, but hopefully not last, guest producer on my podcast!
