Episode 297

Episode 297 – March 25, 2021

This week we find ourselves chasing a dream of a more normal life after a year of pandemic pandemonium and four years of undeniable wretchedness. We’ll put our plans for the morning on hold and queue up a fine collection of new sounds including June Star, Charley Crockett, John Hiatt, and Geoffrey Miller. Our Blue Moon blue plate special of vintage sounds won’t disappoint either: Johnny Paycheck, NRBQ, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, and an inordinate string of classics will fill the cracks.  Dave Stroud will be sharing the the Americana goods once again on KOWS Community Radio, live from the Orchard Street studios in downtown Santa Rosa and broadcasting to planet Earth on www.FreeSpeechNoBull.com/listen.
