Talk To Me

Talk is cheap. Talk can walk…if given the chance. With technology in our face each and every moment … it seems that talk has become even cheaper if not more full of falsehoods. From the very top the sewer of hyperbole flows downhill. But I digress. We’ll go from country to R&B, rock to gospel, and back again…with a theme show about ‘talking’. We’ve got Little Willie John, Nancy Wilson, Bob Wills, Bobby Charles, and Doris Day performing and following the talking points on our roots celebration on Sonoma County community radio.
