Blue Moon Americana

Episode 173 – August 23, 2018

It’s summer vacation time and Blue Moon takes some time, call it a break in the year, to look back at the best Americana releases of the past year. We’ll keep it a secret until the show but you can bet that there will be some old favorites, some surprises, stars on the rise, and some welcome gifts from the past. Tune into Blue Moon every Thursday morning on Sonoma County community radio for new music and vintage sounds from a genre whose borders have no walls except influence.
