Episode 253 – April 30, 2020

Americana music to shelter-in-place by. Doesn’t quite have the ring that we’d like but it’s fresh, it’s on local community radio, and it’s a two hour escape to freshen any morning…even those shut-in mornings. So pour yourself a cuppa what you like or kick back with the headphones cranked and get ready for new tracks from Bob Dylan, Nick Lowe, Brittany Howard, Caleb Caudle, and a host of others. Our wayback machine will turn your ear with special tracks from Tom Waits, Dave Alvin, Freddy Fender, and a few select favorites including Los Lobos, who had to cancel their local show due to the ‘situation’. Tune into community radio Thursday mornings at 9am.
