In honor of Valentine's Day, today's episode of the Memphis Mystery Train was devoted to love. And slow jams. Lots and lots of slow jams.

Also, I had two special guests. Craig Brewer and his friend Jason Freeman stopped by to talk about (and play a few songs from) Jason's new record, "Hex and Hell". If you like what you heard, don't forget to go to the record / video release party on Friday at 9 p.m. at the Poplar Lounge.
