In his three and a half decades as a recording artist, Willie Nile has earned a reputation as both a fiercely committed rock ’n’ roller and a singularly insightful songwriter. It’s Nile’s introspective side that fuels If I Was A River, a deeply compelling ten-song collection that diverges from his usual sound, while affirming the remarkable melodic and lyrical skills that have long endeared the artist to his passionately loyal fan base.Working with Grammy-winning producer Stewart Lerman (Boardwalk Empire, Antony and the Johnsons, Loudon Wainwright III, Dar Williams) Nile recorded the material in an appropriately spare environment that helped to capture the songs’ intimacy and immediacy. He also employed the same Steinway Grand piano that he'd played 34 years earlier on the evening of the death of John Lennon, while both Lennon and Nile were recording at Manhattan’s Record Plant. When Nile was working on If I Was A River, the legendary piano was residing at Hobo Sound in Weehawken, NJ, where he recorded the new album with a minimum of embellishment or trickery. If I Was A River also features some contributions from guitar master Steuart Smith (of Eagles/Rosanne Cash/Rodney Crowell fame) and multi-instrumental stringmaster David Mansfield (whose voluminous credits range from Bob Dylan to Johnny Cash to Yo La Tengo), along with backing vocals from singer-songwriter and frequent Nile co-writer Frankie Lee.It’s hard to think of many other artists who are doing some of their best work in the fourth decade of their careers, but Willie Nile continues to seek out new creative challenges and conquer new musical territory.“Doing this album was liberating in many ways,” he states. “I learned that it’s fun to change horses and take different roads from time to time as one travels through life, and I think I'll carry that lesson with me in the records that I make in the future.?
The quarterback situation for the Mountain West schools is up in the air for nearly every school. So far during spring practices and only a few of the jobs have been settled with the most being decided in fall camp. Jeremy and Chris are back to discuss these quarterback battles and other spring musings.
Is it quite possible that New Mexico has the best quarterback situation, at least with returning talent and experience. Utah State has an argument for that as well but that only matters if Chuckie Keeton can stay healthy and that is not likely going off of his history. Maybe it is Air Force who has Nate Romine under center and while he didn't start last year, he did see time in nine games in 2013.
As of now Boise State, San Diego State, San Jose State, UNLV (but they are close), Hawaii, Wyoming, Colorado State and Fresno State have not officially announced who their starting quarterback will be.
Quarterback play will be a key issue in deciding the Mountain West next year, which is an obvious statement but this year it is important due to the amount of turnover.
Jeremy and Chris are back to preview the Mountain West teams in the tournament with our latest show. We will for sure talk about Wyoming taking on a possible under seeded Northern Iowa team and a St. John's team which San Diego State will face.
We also will discuss Boise State's game that may or may not be in progress at the time of this show for their game against Dayton in the First Four, and if they win a look ahead to their game against Providence.
Wyoming and San Diego State play on Friday with the Cowboys tipping at the very early hour of 10:40 a.m. local time in Seattle. The Aztecs get a reasonable tip at 9:40 p.m. local time.
Also, to make everything 100 percent clear, we are biased against your team. Well not this time as we want the Mountain West to do as good as possible.
Jeremy and Matt are joined by SB Nation's bracket expert Chris Dobbertean to discuss how the Mountain West will fare in getting bids into the NCAA Tournament. We also will discuss the past week and look ahead to how the remaining games will impact seeding for the conference tournament.
Who is the hottest team heading into the Mountani West tournament, and is the easy answer just going with Boise State since they swept San Diego State and split the season series with Colorado State?
The Platinum Queens West family are back at it again as we sit down with a West Coast musical OG and Def Jam Recording artist, Prodeje; one of the founding members of the South Central Cartel. He will take us back in time musically and interpersonally within and beyond the Gangsta Rap genre and the maturation of the West Coast and all things pertaining as he sees it.

Tonight Social Security abuses in Puerto Rico and yes, by our own COngress. Amazing. Also, was our constitution based on the Iroquois Indian constitution? More on Iceland, Monsanto, and will water be the next valuable commodity? Always an interesting perspective on everyday issues.
The Delonte West Side Podcast gets started with guest and occassinal contributor Marshall Lancey who joins the podcast from sunny Florida. Topics include the Elite 8, the NHL playoff race, and hypothetical doomsday scenarios. Enjoy!
Tonight: Outstanding final in basketball and a few thoughts on the boys who played, the Supreme Court and Citizens United, and examples of money corrupting. Also,the California water shortage and Nestle Bottling Company; a shining example of corporate welfare, and my take on the situation in California , Iceland, and the Federal Reserve. Always an interesting perspective on everyday issues.
We bring back our football podcast and barring a vacation or scheduling issue we will have a show weekly from now until August and then going twice a week through bowl season.
The first show back has us interviewing three-star linebacker commit Alec Simpson who has verbally pledged to play at Nevada. Simpson was receiving interest from BYU, Oregon and Wisconsin. The Wolf Pack were his only offer but he likely will be pursued in the fall during his senior year.
The rest of the show will focus on Utah State's spring game with our Aggies contributor Parker Roberston who was at the spring game. We will go over the highlights and what should be expected from the quarterback position and the team overall.
Of course expect some wackiness in our first show back.
Also, to make everything 100 percent clear, we are biased against your team.
