Mr. Bojangles/Fishin' in the Dark/Will the Circle Be Unbroken? (w John McEuen of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band)

It's time for an XL episode, because we couldn't choose just one song to help us chronicle the 50+ year career of the band that created the Americana genre. Founding Dirt Band member John McEuen joins us as we talk about a handful of our favorites from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Also:

Rob’s terrible Norm Macdonald impression

Sparsely-worded choruses galore!

“And we wondered what took so long.”

“He was a nice, drunk guy.”

Working in the Disneyland magic shop with Steve Martin
