Episode 242 – February 6, 2020

2020 is our year of clarity. It’s an election year and don’t think that your vote doesn’t count. It does. Off our soapbox and on with some incredible music, and much of the new music points to where we’ve been over the last three years. There’s a fine new album coming out from the Drive-By-Truckers with social reflection: Thoughts and Prayers and Babies in Cages which we’ll debut on our show this morning. Also, a sneak peek at West County favorite Pi Jacobs’ new release, a new tracks from Robbie Robertson and Nora Jane Struthers. Throwback sounds will feature the flavorings of Dylan, Ronstadt, David Lindley and Little Village. Join Dave Stroud on Sonoma County Community radio each Thursday at 9am on 92.5 FM, streaming at kowsfm.com/listen.
