episode 491: Episode 491: Dire Straits' 'Brothers In Arms' at 35 and New Music From Joachim Cooder

Thirty-five years ago, Brothers In Arms took over the airwaves with some pop perfection and a generation-defining video for the song “Money For Nothing.” But there is much more to this classic than money for nothing and chicks (or whatever gender norm you find yourself attracted to!) for free. After four albums of pub-shaking rock n’ roll, Mark Knopfler and crew hit upon Dire Straits perfect form and delivered a timeless collection of songs that transcended the band's previous work and cemented their legacy in music history. 

PLUS! On Over That Road I’m Bound, multi-instrumentalist Joachim Cooder has reworked the songs of country progenitor Uncle Dave Macon and the result is a heady sonic adventure that you’re not going to want to miss out on.
