Episode 298

Episode 298 – April 1, 2021

We’re not going to let a little bit of BS get in our way today. No foolin’. While there are indications that states that cared the least about a cautionary tale of how pandemics work are seeing cases begin to rise, folks with half an ounce of common sense continue to play things safe. Oh, and they also go for that Fauci ouchie. Just sayin’. And our show today will play no tricks. Throwback sounds from the O’Kanes, The Grateful Dead, The Blasters, and the real Hank Williams create the mood for new sounds, as always, on a Thursday morning. We’ve got Melissa Carper, The Lone Bellow, Lorenzo Wolff, and Alison Russsell on our radar this morning with new Americana sounds. And remember, you can drop by BlueMoonAmericana.com within a day of airing to find the playlists from the previous week’s show.
