Episode 163 – June 7, 2018

Americana music often features songs of prairie living or the prairie moon. But in our case, we’ll go on from there into the sounds of the new including our opening track from Neil Young’s 2005 album Prairie Wind and a Knopfler/Rawlings/Welch selection from 2000’s Sailing to Philadelphia. Tune in for new sounds from Hilary Williams, Gal Holiday, RJ Comer, and The Jayhawks this week. Coming to you from Art Alley in Santa Rosa, it’s Thursday Blue Moon Americana.
