On this week’s “No Small Talk,” we went way overboard on Oscar talk and got ready for a full month of the Musician’s Showcase.

This is the 26th year of the Musicians Showcase. It’s happening every Thursday night in February at Stickyz. If you missed Round 1, Stephanie has a lovely recap on this very blog with judge comments. The winners: The Rios. You can get ready for more semi-finalist rounds with our handy schedule.

Here are the links to things we talked about:

*Of course, you need the Oscar nomination list to follow along with Omaya and I.


*For recommendations: C.J. Boyd music here and info here.

Happy listening. And, congrats to us for cracking the one hour mark!
