Episode 233

Episode 233 – Nov 28, 2019

We’ll be celebrating Turkey Day today, so our show will be prerecorded…from our hometown of Santa Rosa, California. Blue Moon Americana is sitting neatly in it’s new timeslot after a long run at this time after celebrating 230 episodes on KWTF Thursday mornings. This week, we’ll be featuring a lot of new sounds and our vintage thread will take us there… the gospel sounds of the Staples and a few other greats from America’s past. We have a lot to be thankful for, not least of which is a Congress that stood tall and firm against the Russian Candidate whose sole purpose is to line his pockets and the pockets of his family. Impeachment is not the answer: it is only the first step to removal and, hopefully, prison time. But we digress. Music is the topic of our day, and a beautiful one it is.
