Theme Time Radio was a SiriusXM show that Bob Dylan had for 100 episodes, from May 2006 through April 2009. Themes ranged all over the place – mothers to weather to baseball and a whole lot more. Another episode coming later this month was recently announced with the theme of Whiskey. (We will see if Dylan, the reluctant marketer, mentions his line of Heaven’s Door whiskeys.)

I don’t know if it’s too late to influence the song selections but who better than Rock Town Hall to help in the endeavor. I don’t know what restrictions Bob will put on the theme but let’s stick to hard liquor, no beer or wine served here, and it has to be in the title.

Here’s Robbie Fulks doing “White Lightning”

  1. Since it’s not yet been finished, since we laid down the rhythm tracks in 1993 – and since only a handful of you are aware of this Nixon’s Head imaginary offshoot band – I’m going to start with “Whiskey, Pork, and Gin,” by the Dukes of Badass.

    I do hope to make some time to eventually finish this would-be classic.

  2. No list would be complete without the Who’s Entwhistle penned “Whiskey Man!”

  3. “Whiskey Train,” a surprisingly earthy rocker from Procol Harem.

  4. Happiness Stan

    Improbable he’ll include it given their reported exchange at the Last Waltz, Scotch on the Rocks by Neil Diamond

  5. BigSteve

    Something by Ryan Adams’ old band Whiskeytown would be nice, but my vote goes to Whiskey Woman, the final track on the Flamin’ Groovies’ Teenage Head album.

  6. Dash Rip Rock – Big Daddy Like Whiskey

  7. Willie Nelson’s surprisingly funky “Whiskey River”

  8. How about that “Tennessee Whiskey” song that I finally paid attention to a few months ago?

  9. H. Munster

    Whiskey in the Jar — Thin Lizzy

  10. I know it’s stretching the rules but you know I loves me some Brandy by Looking Glass

  11. Nobody’s claimed One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer yet? Now you funny too…

  12. H. Munster

    Red Wine and Whiskey — Katrina and The Waves

  13. 2000 Man

    BigSteve got the first one I thought of, but I’m gonna dig up some real schlock and go with Nazareth’s Whiskey Drinkin’ Woman.

  14. “All Liquored Up,” another Dash Rip Rock song written by Mojo Nixon and Country Dick Montana, Drinkin’ songs are one of their main staples.

  15. H. Munster

    Bourbon Street by The Hurriganes

  16. “Snortin’ Whiskey, Drinkin’ Cocaine!” (for some reason I still hold onto a copy of Crash and Burn from a 4 -month Pat Travers phase in high school.)

  18. I’d have bet the farm he was going to play Willie Nelson. Game recognizes game. Those guys have both been at it for ages. Road warriors.

  19. H. Munster

    Broken Whiskey Bottle by Jason and the Scorchers
