Todd Snider’s latest CD, “The Excitement Plan,” is a lively mix of storytelling and catchy melodies. There’s a song about a pitcher on LSD, one about a coke dealer he knew as a kid, and a duet with Loretta Lynn. In the studio with Bob, Snider had an easy confidence about his music, launching into songs with little preparation at all. And the man likes to talk. In fact, he says that during his live shows, he’ll sometimes go on for 20 minutes in between songs. If you’d like to hear him chat and play in person, check his website for upcoming tour dates.
