Episode 239 – January 16, 2020

The new year brings an avalanche of new sounds in the Americana landscape and we’re here for you. Listen in for new sounds from Sarah Morris, Dennis J. Leise, Bart Budwig, and Rylan Brooks. I’ve been keeping up the best I can with some great new sounds but I’ve also got some classics to share with you; and this week we’ll be giving some kudos to the great Richard Thompson with covers by Del McCoury, Nanci Griffith, and The Five Blind Boys of Alabama and some so work from Richard himself. Thursday mornings. Blue Moon. Americana. How can we wind ourselves up for the weekend, you ask? Well, the Thursday morning 9 o’clock call on KOWS radio should warrant attention.
