Episode 282 – Dec 10, 2020

Americana music on a Thursday morning has been the order of the day for the past five years here on KOWS. Each morning from 5 to 7 Pacific, you’re introduced to the latest releases with some vintage sounds thrown in; and Thursday brings the fully curated playlists to share. This week is no different as we hear new tracks from Lafavorites, PJ O’Connor, Dan Penn, and Steve Earle. We’ll also feature new tracks from Jeff Tweedy and fill out the vintage theme with the music of Jeff Tweedy including some Wilco, Billy Bragg, Golden Smog, Uncle Tupelo and more, We’re bracing for the worst of 2020 with Christmas right around the corner. Our front line health care workers deserve more than we offer them and let’s throw out a huge thank you to the universe for their commitment and empathy. This has been a year for the ages and there can only be hope around the bend. Thanks for listening.
