Episode 219

Episode 219 – August 1, 2019

A bit of gospel, a bit of Dylan, Cash, and Prine this week on Blue Moon. Dave Stroud will also be drilling down on some fresh sounds from none other than Gloria Gaynor, Jontavious Willis, and The Steel Wheels covering the more contemporary of Americana releases recently out there. He’ll also be sharing a Mavis Staples cover of Son of a Preacher Man from 1969, Buck Owens’ Tiger’s tail, and he’ll make sure to drop in on coal country with John Prine’s memorable ode to the loss of Mr. Peabody’s coal mine. Pure Americana on a hot Thursday morning in heart of a Sonoma County summer.
