Episode 300

Episode 300 – April 15, 2021

While there was some consideration of celebrating quite madly our 300th episode, better and more sober heads prevailed. We’re going with a fun collection of blue eyed soul serenades coupled with some sounds from Ben E. King and The Drifters to fill out our vintage sounds. Included in all of this are some highlights from one of the great interpreters of the sound: Willy DeVille. Oh, yes, and some Elvis, BB King and Dr. John to boot. And the new tracks are rolling in including a new album from The Fratellis, Jamie Lin Wilson, Joe Pug, and Allison Russell to introduce you to freshly baked sounds from the Americana kitchens. In addition, we’ve got a new track from Midland’s latest, Amy Helm, and Hey, King! to keep you close at hand. Join Dave Stroud on KOWS Community Radio every Thursday morning at 9am Pacific.
