Episode 264 – July 16, 2020

A remarkable blend of the best of vintage and brand new Americana releases await you tuning in on a Sonoma County summer Thursday morning. Brand new tracks from Arlo McKinley, Will Hoge, and Maple Run Band are just a hint of what’s in store. Vintage tracks on Blue Moon this week won’t disappoint. Looking down the list of selections we see everyone from Sister Rosetta Tharpe to The Texas Tornadoes, Chris Smither, Joe Ely and Roger Miller. November cannot come soon enough. A vaccine cannot come soon enough. And a clean sweep of the enablers in the Senate GOP is long overdue. But we’ll keep that in check on the show…or at least try because this Democracy we live in is crumbling under the weight of greed and avarice and, I’m sorry to say, a sector of evangelists that care more about a golden (orange?) cow than the flock. Just sayin’. Tune in to KOWS 92.5 FM Community Radio for Sonoma County every Thursday morning at 9 PST with your host Dave Stroud.
