EPISODE 299 – APRIL 8, 2021

Got a little red wagon and some classics from the fifties about a one way river trip to kick our vintage celebration off this week. But make no mistake, this show’s got more than just a baker’s dozen of brand new tracks: Nick Waterhouse, Lyman Ellerman, The Shootouts, Amy Helm and Esther Rose are among the performers we’ll be hearing from once more on our Thursday morning show coming at you from the Cherry Street Historic District of downtown Santa Rosa, California. Now, more about those vintage performances; Del Shannon, Billy Joe Shaver, Steve Earle and local steel guitar legend Bobby Lee are among the outliers in today’s show. Drop on by Blue Moon Americana.com within a day of airing to find the playlists from this week’s show.
