William, oh William, it was really nothing—but an all—Bill all the time podcast! At Mike's suggestion, this round's musicians are all named Bill. Heck, half of them are white guys named Bill Evans who gigged with Miles Davis. How's that for homogeneity? Don't fret—the other Bills at this party bring heavy-gauge avant credentials to balance things out. Pop matters swerves all over the road, ranging from The Negro Problem to Shaun Colvin.
