"The why for a better us this is fresh air and if you're just joining us my gas or JD McPherson and members of his band and their new album is an album of jadis original Christmas songs it's called socks so we talked over read growing up on a cattle ranch you taught school before you were professional musician he taught eighth grade you were fired from eighth grade teaching so as I really US it for years I lasted six weeks wow I have the edge over you I want to know what you did everything wrong I can kill classroom let alone teach them anything but what why were you five well really the tree you know the lead there's actually a little a little bit of a legend perpetuated by a big rock magazine that I was fired for giving a fifteen year old boy at bad brains CD that's true I did give them the bad brains CD but the reason I was fires because I was a terrible employee in what sense I just I'm not good at wallowing in the mire of administrative yeah I'm not good at office politics I'm not good at relating to other adults in fact I'm much but I'm actually much better with the kids so you know and essentially thirteen year old you know mentally anyway so it's kind of we can relate to each other this is a ministry via your work I think I've heard that word before I haven't I like it thank you yes I invented that where Terry you also one of your your first album factors calls signs and semiotics close signs on to signify signs signs and signifiers are part of the definition of semiotic switches using signs and signifiers and symbols to understand how meaning is derived from the tax and the sim yacht assists who invented him came up with a very arcane language to deconstruct different art forms why did you study that well I was in art school for a long long time I got my my bachelors at university of Oklahoma in experimental film and video art and and then I I got my master of fine arts at the university of Tulsa in what they called open media which was everything I went crazy over there they I can't believe they let me get away with what I have I studied everything from installation to painting to card magic and but I'm just saying in in in in eleven twelve years of art school you're gonna have to read says Soren Roland Barthes and and all those things which is essentially teaches you that up this good down this path so what do you want to name an album signs and signifiers well I I will always like that I always like to language and I love to that that terminology that you'd see pop up once I always thought it sounded like a like a kind of a twenties blues title sound like something that may be Charley Patton might say or I don't know it just seemed to be kind of both it it appealed to my art school sensibility and my and my love of kind of our cake blues language I guess I don't know do you think it sounded vaguely biblical like the signs and signifiers of hell of it if you don't yeah maybe a little that to both my both my parents are preachers too so maybe there's a little and that in there too our thinking a lot of the blues people I mean saying about hell and damnation so your your mother was my mother yeah Richard Butler church the word of life church in Beijing Oklahoma and she's been she's been a minister for when she's she's in her eighties now she's doing it a long time it was it was a big deal because where we lived that wasn't really people didn't really like that and some people I guess didn't really like that there was a woman preacher and she's incredible lady she you know always supported my music she kept the cops from shutting us down in in McAlester when my little band played our first gig at the public input theater I was gonna shut it down because it was loud and bad didn't things down for aesthetic reasons down for others McAllister police they don't have you know there's not a lot going on so when kids were skateboard show up then distortion boxes and singing songs by people from England I don't know they they wanted to they want to shut her down but I so I just member my mom I didn't even know she was there that she was there and she went over and talked to let these kids play so was your family church the church for your mother preach yeah yes you grew up with your mother preaching yeah what did you preach like what we're what are some memorable things from her Sir well it was a nondenominational service it is really really heavy on music there's a lot of music I started up drums there my brother played guitar so you played white one in your mother's church hall yeah what what music did you play you know it wasn't like him is it wasn't they were kind of songs written by people and like gad non non published material and it was the it was an interesting place like there was a lot of different kind of like I remember you know we would bring them guys from the Jackie Brannon correctional facility to church and got to know a lot of those guys and some of those guys played in the band arrow is now that I look back you know it was a it was just church but you know it was pretty interesting place actually sounds yeah it's a few bars of one of those songs that you should answer I remember my dad used to seeing this uncle cover me that I really like and this is going to be in this is my literally never and because of the room the cold then we extend the borders of mantle who for their no news Kinsler because then the curve earlier in the curve very me repeat yes yeah so the Christmas songs actually have special meaning for you because your mother was a preacher well and living in the countryside you know and you don't you don't go to the mall very much you don't hear you're not inundated you know the day of thanksgiving and beyond with constant Christian he I think it was actually kind of a special thing to go to the city for me so when I did go it was Christmas time it really felt I think like maybe what they're trying to make you feel as opposed to living in a city and it's just everywhere all the time you know I'd ever since making this record we here we talked about a lot and you hear a lot of people saying they're really they really don't like it that never ending there just like tired of Christmas music or it's coming too soon or whatever I never happened to me so I I always kind of really liked it I think that maybe that that sort of cynicism about holiday music didn't didn't really apply to me in some way that's nice yeah yeah I like that I like not being cynical about things so when you were fired after four years from teaching was that like a relief for you did open up the door to becoming a musician well I will time music yeah is it okay if I say yes new every job I ever had I tried to somehow in jacked music in there somewhere I tried to figure out a way to make it about what I really wanted to do and so when the fourth graders were learning it type they were typing about the Collins kids or Charlie Christian and when they were learning how to make power points they were you know I showed them the power point I made about the clash and we would have Google search contests where I would play music and press pause and that's when you stop for you know name the four amounts go you get a piece of candy to get in and you know I mean so it was always kind of tiger tiger can't change its stripes in I'm a rock and roll tiger man can so I want to close with another that is I want you to close with another Christmas song there's a song a lot from the new album your new album socks and I'd like you to perform for us and it's called what's that sound and I think everyone in the band is going to chime in on that one yes though this one I think is probably getting down to the reader that anti cynicism sentiment we were just speaking about this is this is this one's about all those nice things that you can experience during that time a year so this is JD McPherson and his band performing in our studio and the song is what's that sound and it's also on their new Christmas album which is called socks okay here we go what's the door here same last year they it sounds what yeah same last year rockets what's now that yeah that same business found last year shop the TomTom I have two days now that's what yeah that same last year jingle the I read that he is so

Let's get back to our concert of roots and rockabilly new original Christmas songs with JD McPherson and his band. Their new Christmas album is called socks. This is his fourth album. What sometimes called retro rock McPherson is a songwriter singer. And guitarist he grew up on a cattle ranch in Oklahoma. So when did you start getting interested in rockabilly? So, you know, some of those some of those punk bands that I was into would do would would once in a while like, okay, for instance, the clash on Lenin calling. They did a song called brand new Cadillac, which was a cover of Iraq. Billy tune. There was a couple of bands that did covers of Eddie. Cochran something else that it was like pretty apparent that earliest expression of rock and roll was a big influence on seventies punk rockers. Because they were like, we're tired of fifteen minute. You know, synthesizer solos and stuff. Let's just get it back to kind of St. street music. And so it appealed to me in that way. But at the same time there was really great musicianship on those early rock and roll records because you had drummers like Earl Palmer guitar players. Like, Hank Carlin, Grady? I mean, all these incredible musicians sometimes playing with seventeen year old who couldn't play their instruments on the same record. And. All of that really appealed to me. It was like mashing all of these worlds together and making something really exciting. So I guess that's why Jimmy you're interested in that too. This is Jimmy Sutton the bass player because like you even have your own record label and studio on the label's called high style. Hi style records, and it's all it's all roots music. In fact, I like the description on your website of the label, it's high style. Focuses on American roots music that feeds the soul. So Jimmy one of the things you do is play slap bass, I want I want you to demonstrate how that sounds for us. Absolutely here. I'll give you to my favorites is going to combination between Willie Dixon and Bill. Black. So

"That kid is back again. And dig that. Shea. Dominic me thing. Chris street in snow may nomad. Gun the blue. Done. I'm saying he's a piece would. This great. That's such a great self assign is written by JD McPherson, who we heard on guitar vocals, and this is one of the songs that he wrote that's on the new Christmas album socks that he recorded with his band. Thank you for playing in the studio for us. This is so much fun. Thank you for this is so much fun for me. So JD I wanna ask you a little bit about your past. Because you grew up on a cattle farm. Yeah. And oklahoma. So that describe it for us hundred sixty acres or thereabouts. An a frame house that my dad built up on a hill southeast. Oklahoma's really pretty I think it's the prettiest part of Oklahoma mountainous kind of Ozark type landscape registered wranglings cattle, a nineteen forties. Massey. Harris tractor and nothing else to do. But to obsess over music and drop pictures. Did you have to do things on the kennel Rancho? Yeah. What'd you? Have to well, you have to feed them first of all. And that was kind of I think that's probably the the the best the best description is waking up at five in the morning before school and putting out around bail meal and salt mix for the cows. And everything that's that's an early day for for a teenage kid see how to do that. Yeah. And did you have to shovel anything? No. There's plenty of room. You don't you don't have to worry about it too much. Watch where you're walking my knowledge of like cattle is kind of like cattle drive westerns like the TV series rawhide nothing like that. No. You just of call him, and they come they come up really like you call them calm. What's the cattle car o? I can't do it here because it's so loud. But it's kind of like. Wow. Yeah. Then help him musically to learn how to do that. When you're a kid. I don't know. Maybe that's where the first thing happened. I know because he sees there's nothing to do except exce obsess on music. So what music were you obsessing on early on? Well, so when my my brain sort of turned on was my older brothers were teenagers in the seventies. And so they're they're music was kind of guitar rock. Classic rock. They call it nowadays cream Hendrix, Led Zeppelin etcetera. And I was interested in it. And I was interested in guitar. And so my older brother John Aaron with teach me thing here, and there and the more I kind of listened to these things I I guess became curious about what they were listening to. I mean, I couldn't stop listening and reading because it was so it was so difficult to get music. I would have to call, you know, like the mall in Fort Smith Arkansas in place in order. Three CDs that I just read about in the cream magazine that I bought the last time I was in Fort Smith. So it was like this constant sort of mining. And you know, you read things and you find out that, you know, Robert plant was into Benny joy and the ever Lee brothers and Little Richard. And so I don't know when I kind of stumbled on that stuff that was kind of a really big deal. I just remember asking my brother, also, he I started getting into kind of punk rock music and asking my brother. Hey, John, Aaron you're you're around in the seventies. Did you ever listened to punk rock, and he said, no? So that was the twain we we split up there. See you mentioned punk rock duty starting a punk rock band. Yeah. So me, and my friend Mitchell had three bands with same. Just the same two members. Basically, we would we would my my nephew. Eventually we taught him how to play bass. So we had a trio. And but yeah, that was we played two shows. One of them was cancelled. That was John sparks has backyard. Cowboys don't really like Xia. I know was oxen audience, right? But we worked so hard on it. Oh, gee. Discouraging you love this music. And there's nobody to listen to it with that really play. It was just fun. It's good. It's a good thing to do. And you know, when you're idling you're idle setting it fourteen fifteen years old is frustration. So you just do stuff because you're supposed to do it. And it's like you against the world. And and so that's what we did. Now. Now we're talking about Christmas because you have a new Christmas album. I think that your first telecaster guitar was a Christmas gift. Yeah. It was actually a Stratocaster which is weird because I immediately shifted into being telecaster guy after that. But that was the best thing that I could have ever received. I mean, it was like it was just the right time. I worked really hard time was probably fifteen h nNcholas fifteen and I didn't expect to get it. And I had got all my my presence. And I was I was really grateful for all. And then all of a sudden, my brother brings in this white. You know, it was it was the the same guitar that Wayne had in Wayne's world that he wanted to buy these. Oh, yes, it will be mine. It literally said Wayne's world on the back of the guitar like it was the guitar made that move. I was so stoked to have a real trick ATar. So, but then then I discovered Jost drummer and Keith Richards and Chrissie Hinde all head telecaster. So I wanted to do that. Instead. So when you were growing up on a cattle farm was it hard to get into town or to go to restore it sounds like you had a call stores and shopping malls and another state in order to find us it. Yeah. It was really isolated the nearest supermarket was about forty five minute drive. I mean, there's like little little country stores here and there, but you know, he would my folks would do their shopping in like McAllister, Oklahoma, or whatever very, yeah. Very isolated nearest neighbor was two and a half miles away dirt road. Yeah. Did you vow one day? I'm going to be in New York. Well, I I wanted to go to Tulsa, my spice sites were much smaller. We we used to go to we used to go shows in Tulsa, and there's a really important venue. They're called Cains ballroom. And I saw you know, all my first concerts there such an important place. And I knew that the Sex Pistols had played there and Hank Williams had played there. So that was like I wanted to be in Tulsa Greer another Christmas song. Yeah. Okay. So let me suggest one how about bad kid from your new Christmas album socks. Can you can you all? Play that for us, and and the musicians here in the studio with me, and it's JD McPherson and his band, and we're hearing Jimmy Sutton on bass, and Doug, what are you playing on this?

Here's senior director of digital operations, Brock Mikhael. And so now, you're immersed in that experience. And now your brain remembers it because it's like you've done it. And you've been there though, you never left the conference room or the classroom that you were standing in to learn more about how WalMart leverages virtual reality. Visit WalMart's day dot com slash training. Let's get back to our concert of roots and rockabilly new original Christmas songs with JD McPherson and his band their new Christmas album is called socks. So when did you start getting interested in rockabilly? So, you know, some of those some of those punk bands that I was into would do would once in a while like, okay, for instance, the clash on one in calling. They did a song called brand new Cadillac, which was a cover of Iraq. Billy tune. There was a couple of bands that did covers of Eddie. Cochran something else that it was like pretty apparent that earliest expression of rock and roll was a big influence on the seventies punk rockers. Because they were like, we're tired of fifteen minute. You know, synthesizer solos and stuff. Let's just get it back to kind of St. street music. And so it appealed to me in that way. But at the same time there was really great musicianship on those early rock and roll records because you had drummer Earl Palmer guitar players. Like, Hank Carlin, Grady? I mean, all these incredible musicians sometimes playing with seventeen year old who couldn't play their instruments on the same record. And. All of that really appealed to me. It was like mashing all of these worlds together and making something really exciting. So I guess that's why Jimmy you're interested in that too. This is Jimmy Sutton the bass player because like you even have your own record label and studio on the label's called high style. Hi style records, and it's all it's all roots music. In fact, I like the description on your website of the labels high style. Focuses on American roots music that feeds the soul. So Jimmy one of the things you do is play slap bass, I want you to demonstrate how that sounds for us. Absolutely here. I'll give you to my favorites is going to combination between have a Willie Dixon and Bill black. Turning
