Episode 281 – Dec 3, 2020

The year of an election like none in our lifetime and where morals and ethics of many of those were revealed in the cult of personality that was, and is, Donald Trump. There are no words for the sadness that 71+ million people believed in him. But, once again, we have music to begin to now heal the scars and a leader who thinks more of his country than himself. As it should be. This week’s Blue Moon will feature a brilliant new track from Paul Thorn, more Jeff Tweedy, new live sounds from Margo Price, and a while lot more new Americana tracks. To emphasize the heartbeat of the genre, we’ll be featuring performances from Emmylou Harris as our throwback quilt. All of this shared with you each Thursday morning here on KOWS Community Radio, 92.5 FM in Sonoma County. Free Speech. No Bull radio.
