Sleestak Lightnin!!!, ep. 8 - Old Timey Medicine Show

Download or stream it HERE!

This one isn't really thematic.  I mean, from the vantage point of 2014, it's all "old-timey" music, but the recordings range from the 1920's through the 1950's.  I didn't feel like back-announcing, since I'm getting over a cold, instead I stuck some bits from the Okeh Medicine Show in there to mix it up.  You can find the whole Okeh Medicine Show at Archive.org.  Also, the track "Night Owl" comes from a compilation called Dark Sweets, originally posted on the long-defunct Holy Warbles blog.  You can find that excellent comp here.  I know it's been a while, so I'm gonna try to get another one of these up as quickly as I can.  The tunes:
