Episode 252

Episode 252 – April 23, 2020

We’re masked up. We’re an army of hoarders in a world rule by empty store shelves where your neighbor cannot connect and your boundaries of safety are surrounded by your property line. Blue Moon Americana is here to give you the freshness you need in your life on this shelter-in-place morning in Sonoma County. Today’s show features a host of new tracks including performances by Nick Lowe, tracks from new albums by Chuck Prophet, Logan Ledger and Roomful of Blues, and we’ll hear from Steve Earle and the Dukes’ <em>Ghosts of West Virginia. </em>Vintage sounds today are as fresh as they come, but from those earlier decades: Marty Robbins, Porter Wagoner, Willie Nelson, and Moon Mullican. Let’s not let our guards down. Tune into community radio Thursday mornings at 9am.
