Episode 293 – Feb 25, 2021

Back live in the studio! Our hearts go out to those of you in the great state of Texas for all that you’ve gone through over the past few weeks, not to mention the painful political failures of Abbott and Costello, er I mean Cruz and Cronyn. AOC and Beto will do what’s right although independence and pride comes at a price as your Colorado City mayor so belligerently expressed. We’re pulling for the people of Texas here in California, believe me. This week’s show on Blue Moon will take some liberties in its vintage tracks with stories about the railroad with some Johnny Bond, James Brown, and Tarheel Slim with some embellishments from Elvis, Charles Writght and The Isleys. Also, the floodgates of 2021 Americana have opened and we’ll be sharing new sounds from Ryland Moranz, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Curtis Salgado, and Anya Hinkle. This is Free Speech No Bull radio.
