Gospel Dynamite I
It’s a two part celebration of the very best in gospel sounds…songs and spirituals that are embedded in our culture. There just was not enough time to capture the great songs like “I’ll Fly Away”, “This Train”, “Please In The Valley”, “Down By The Riverside”, and so many others in just a single episode…so we broke it into two parts which is still barely enough. We’ll play the influential sacred versions alongside the celebratory secular ones with performers like Chet Atkins, Mahalia Jackson, Elvis Presley, and the CBS Trumpeteers. Tune in for two hours of rousing gospel in another two hour Americana roots journey on Sonoma County community radio.
Our show this week features blues and country numbers about the many different American cities that had their own personalities…good and bad. You be the judge. From Naptown and Kokomo to KC and Mobile…north, south, east, and west. We’ll hear from Barbecue Bob, Lonnie Johnson, Ernest Tubb, Charlie Poole, and Little Brother Montgomery (to name just a few). Join Dave Stroud for another two hours of America’s tradition …
Deeper Roots revisits the deeper roots…focusing on old-timey sounds of some of the great performers playing the classic standards. Country music roots go back into the European melodies and folk tunes and their instruments called to a celebration of the Diasporas. This week: Gid Tanner, Vernon Dalhart, Al Hopkins, Jimmie Rodgers, Bradley Kincaid, Charlie Poole, and many others provide us a glimpse at where it all began. Join us for another roots-infused evening here in Sonoma County.
