Episode 40: Happy Hawkeye Holidays 2016, Part 3 of 3 - The Spiked Eggnog Edition



We are now at the last of this year's three holiday episodes.

In this episode we feature songs containing words and subject matter that would put you on Santa's naughty list!

So if you're not into hearing the f-bomb among other things, you would probably be happier listening to the first or second of this year's holiday shows.

If things like that don't bother you, then be prepared to hear some interesting and exciting Yuletide tales...

We also feature two songs, one by Billy Catone and one by Rachel Feldmann, done exclusively for this podcast!

Episode 39: Happy Hawkeye Holidays 2016, Part 2 of 2 - The Cola Edition



Welcome back to the second of this year's holiday episodes.

This episode, we bring the sugary goodness of our more poppier Christmas tunes (and one folky Solstice tune).

Though this is definitely poppier than last week's, it's not really pop. We have everything from an orchestra doing jazz to blues to folk to electronic dance music to ska.

So eat some corn with your holiday music and listen to these Iowan artist show the spirit of the season!

Episode 38: Happy Hawkeye Holidays 2016, Part 1 of 3 - The Milk Edition



Well, once again we present you with Holiday tunes from and by Iowans.

And like last year, the first episode features more traditional tunes. The second will feature poppier far. And the last one more untraditional and risque stuff.

Although these songs tend to be mellow and laid back, we still have quite the variety with a world flute player, a choir from a Christian college, a gospel singer, a female folk singer, a female folk duo, and a recent Iowa Jazz Hall of Fame inductee!

So get your eggnog going, get a warm fire started, light up the tree, then sit back, relax, and enjoy holiday tunes as only Iowa can bring them to you!

PLAYLISTS and OTHER SOURCES: Iowa Holiday music

Well, the game plan was to put out the first of my holiday podcasts, which will feature everything from classical and folk to metal and punk, But Thanksgiving and a bug that's been circulating my workplace put a monkey wrench in that plan.


So that will have to wait a week, and instead you get a Spotify, SoundCloud, and YouTube playlist of Holiday music made by Iowans.

Also, Locusic has a station of local holiday music too! - http://www.locusic.com/

If you know of any others, please tell me at iowamusicshowcase@gmail.com and I will add them to the playlist! Happy holidays, everyone!

Episode 37: Happy Hawkeye Halloween 2016, Part 4 of 4 - Scary Silhouette



Well, well, you've made it this far. And still in one piece? At least, physically, bwahahahaha!

Shall we see if your little human minds can handle the last of our awe-inspiring hymns of horror?

I warn you now, these final tunes contain subject matter and language that some of the more delicate of you can't handle. If you believe you are one of these, then leave now while I still give you a chance to do so!

Now for the more hardy of you, prepare for hard rock and hip hop tales of Satanism and murder mayhem!

Enjoy! Bwahahahahaha!

IOWA MUSIC SHOWCASE PODCAST - Episode 36: Happy Hawkeye Halloween 2016, Part 3 of 4 - The Lightning Strikes



Oh my god! And trust me, you wouldn't like my god!

You STILL come back to my humble abode! My sanctum sanctorum! By hairy hosts of Hogguth, you all are a stubborn lot!

But be warned, some of these tales deal with subjects and matters - and swear words - that some of you delicate types will whine and cry about! So if you are such a wimpering type, leave now! You have been warned!

For the rest of you foolhardy followers, we present tales of terror featuring blood suckers, strange children, mass murderers, and parricidals!

Bwahahahaha!
