Episode 267 – August 13, 2020

We’ve got some classic Americana chugga-chugga for you this morning. It’s a Bo Diddley wakeup call. Our vintage tracks will be flavored to the tune of Mr. Elias McDaniel, better known as the gunslinger that made the transition from blues to rock n’ roll; not only in his own music but by firing up the congregation of musicians and fans who identified with it as their own heartbeat. We’ll also share new tracks today from The Mavericks (from their upcoming release En Espanol), a new track from the Karen Jonas album, Zephaniah OHora, and at lease one new track from a gotta-have album by Dan Bern called Ivan’s Barber Shop. The dog days have arrived. Baseball’s limping along (as are we all), and Americana sounds are piped through the ether, coming at you each Thursday morning on Sonoma County Community Radio: KOWS 92.5 FM (for locals) and streaming to every one of you out there on kowsfm.com/listen.
