Episode 160 – May 17, 2018

We’re headed south along California’s Central Valley in our vintage spot music this morning to celebrate the honky tonk sounds of Kern County. Buck Owens, Tommy Collins, and Merle Haggard are front and center in our playlists today. But they’ll have good company with some great new sounds including John Prine, Joshua Hedley, Gretchen Peters, and Parker Millsap. It’s a Blue Moon Americana morning here in Sonoma County every Thursday. Hope you can join us, if not earlier, then later.
