Episode 294

Episode 294 – MARCH 4, 2021

A Thursday morning tip of the hat to the sounds from the border as well as the great state of Texas as we saddle up for two hours of pure Americana. Tex-Mex, Tejano, and a mild dose of classic canciones from the barrios and flatlands. This week’s Blue Moon features another new track from Pony Bradshaw’s latest, the delightful “Calico Jim”. That’s certainly not all as we’ve got new releases galore: Sarah Jarosz, Amythyst Kiah, Joshua Henry, and Dave Alvin are on the bill. We’ll also be expanding our reach a bit with music from Linda Ronstadt’s classic “Canciones de Mi Padre”, Ry Cooder’s soundtrack to Paris Texas, and tender reminiscences from that same movie by the late Harry Dean Stanton. Join Dave Stroud for another Thursday morning ‘ramble’ from the KOWS studios in the heart of the Cherry Street Historic District in Santa Rosa, California. It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood and it’s always a fabulous time to listen to the mighty KOWS community radio.
