Gramps Just Makes Shit Up!

Gramps Just Makes Shit Up!

Gramps talks about music he enjoys, most of which is in the Americana and Folk genre. And, he often interviews the people who make it. Gramps may even share music and poems he's written after being smacked by the muse.

He also shares music and poems and prose that his friends have created, if they give him permission. (If he remembers to ask for permission.) He also interviews interesting friends he's met along his long, circuitous journey through life. His musings include stories and trivia about history and science, all of which may or may not be true. Listen in as he rifles through his shoebox of memories. Memories can last digitally forever, even if the accuracy of the source is a bit questionable. Of course, in this Gramps' case, he most likely forgot what he had for breakfast.
