Episode 286 – Jan 7, 2021

We open 2021 with a collection of new sounds from Mike Campbell’s Dirty Knobs, Victoria Bailey, Lafavorites, and The Lone Bellow, keeping a fresh perspective on a new year full of new hope. There is nowhere to go but up from the last four years as the bottom of the barrel has been encountered. So take hope as your banner beginning today. We’ve got an eclectic blend of vintage Americana sounds to anchor the new releases today. Tune in for classics from Johnny Burnette, Matchbox, Brenda Lee, B. B. King, and Calexico. Join Dave Stroud for the first Blue Moon Americana of the year on KOWS Community Radio. Free Form. Free Speech. No Bull. 92.5 FM across the Sonoma County airwaves and streaming to the world on kowsfm.com/listen.
