Episode 277

Episode 277 – Oct 29, 2020

Our last show before the November election. Rather than go political, we’ll try for some collective Americana meditation with the very best of vintage and the brightest of the new. This week’s vintage collection will include tracks from Chris Hillman, Jack Clement, Elvis, and Emmylou Harris. Music is always a good answer when the question is ‘how do I take my mind off of everything’…and there’s no doubt that 2020 has had everything we can put up with. New sounds this morning from Sturgill Simpson, Tanya Tucker, and Blitzen Trapper will remind you that traditions do not only rest in yesterday’s sounds…it’s the old addage: old wine in new jugs. And we’ve got some of that for you this Thursday morning on Blue Moon Americana with Dave Stroud on KOWS Community Radio. Tune in .
