Americana Hours Classics

Americana Hours Classics

We’re gathering under the Americana tent this morning; well, I guess, technically, we do each Friday morning. But this week we’ll spend some time with the classics. I’ll be sharing mid-century highlights from east, west, north and south in a show that pays tribute to some of the classic performers and performances that codified what’s become known as Americana: not a genre, but more of something in the air that makes you comfortable as a well worn blanket but also is the cold breeze that comes in through the cracks. I’ve got the celebratory sounds of The Blasters, Arlo Guthrie, and the NGDB; the painful reminders of days past from The Band, Chris Hillman, and Guy Clark; the harsh reminders of what got us here from Steve Earle, James McMurtry, and Bruce Springsteen. So much more to share in only two hours on Sonoma County Community Radio.
