Episode 248 – March 19, 2020

Virus? What virus? Let’s take our minds off the dire news and spend some time in the Americana easy chair, sipping (or otherwise imbibing) the nectar that gives our morning just a little bit more focus…all while listening to new and vintage tracks from under that big tent they call Americana. Our playlists of new tracks come from James Hyland, Kim Richey, White Owl Red, and Avi Kaplan. Rest assured, however, that there’s so much more new music to keep you relaxing where you are. I’ve also dug into those vintage crates for tracks from some of our favorites in this show: The Band, Patsy Cline, Johnny Rivers, and Robert Gordon (with Link Wray). You’ll want to tune in, trust me! Streaming (except on Chrome browsers) at kowsfm.com and, if you’re within our antenna’s earshot, here Sonoma County, KOWS Community Radio. 92.5 FM.
