It’s another Weird Wednesday here on BTR, because it’s time for God Bless Weirdmerica. I can’t always promise that every band will actually be from the US, or that everyone on the show is freak folk, but I CAN promise that you aren’t going to be able to hear a show like this on regular radio. Pledge allegiance to God Bless Weirdmerica, with greats songs today from Man Man, Gardens & Villa, Nat Baldwin, and more!
