Episode 274

Episode 274 – Oct 8, 2020

Americana music, as we know, hosts a big tent. We’re graced with sounds that go to the heart of celebrating night and day this expansive land and the people in it…which makes the prospects of a hijack of our democracy by a would-be autocrat that much more frightening. And it should. But the music can help us go from one day to the next, especially when it’s celebrated under that big tent. This week’s show features new tracks from Joachim Cooder, John Craigie, Matt Costa, and Jack Klatt to celebrate the freshly mown lawns of our heritage, right alongside the vintage. This week’s vintage tracks celebrate the country swing music of Bob Wills with The Time Jumpers, Willie Nelson, Asleep at the Wheel, and Waylon Jennings. Tune into KOWS Community Radio every Thursday morning at 9am Pacific. And you’ve got no excuse not to if you love Americana music because you can stream us anywhere on planet Earth at www.freespeechnobull.com/listen.
