Episode 280 – Nov 26, 2020

We are giving thanks today. It’s 2020’s version of Thanksgiving, virtually and carefully we tread. No pearl clutching here, though. We’re bound and determined that democracy and our way of life not be soiled by the screaming minority who follow a cult led by liars. On the other hand, we celebrate our democracy, our voices, and our freedoms. And what better way to do that than by listening to Americana’s soul on free speech community radio…without the bull. This week we revel in that very soul with new sounds unearthed from the late Sharon Jones, a powerful resurrection of a Broadway classic Brittany Howard, and blues for the day from Shemekia Copeland. All of this seasoned with soul sounds from the sixties and seventies as we invite performances from Etta James, Bessie Banks, Garnet Mimms, and Betty Harris on the show today. Put down the pearls and grab a cuppa and join Dave Stroud for another morning of Americana sounds.
