The Consequence Podcast Network’s series The Opus is back this month focusing on another legendary album. This time, host Andy “Astronautalis” Bothwell is taking listeners through the legacy of one of folk’s most iconic records, Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water. With episode two of the new season debuting on Consequence of Sound Radio on TuneIn this Friday, February 21st at 8:00 a.m. ET/ 5:00 a.m. PT, we’re getting you in the mood with a fresh Inspired By playlist.
Airing today, February 18th, at 6:00 p.m. ET / 3:00 p.m. PT, this latest edition of Inspired By looks at Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel’s influence beyond their final LP together. The duo had an immediate effect on folk, touching the sounds of everyone from Joni Mitchell to Crosby, Stills & Nash to Fleetwood Mac. Of course, contemporary acoustic masters like The Milk Carton Kids, Monsters of Folk, and even Elliott Smith continue to carry the torch. Right through to the indie folk groundswell of The Shins and Fleet Foxes, Simon and Garfunkel’s impact on music has spanned decades.
We’re celebrating all the ways the duo have left their mark on folk with our 12-song playlist of hits. To hear it all, tune into CoS Radio today, and catch rebroadcasts throughout the week. The complete Inspired By schedule is below, and you can also peep Consequence of Sound Radio’s complete weekly programming for more exclusive content and interviews, including a celebration of all things Better Call Saul.
