Covering Bill Monroe

Covering Bill Monroe

The music of Bill Monroe is the theme of our show today. We’ll be featuring some classic tunes from the Monroe catalog including some traditional tunes as well as those written by the master himself. The performers include those from all walks:  Ray Charles, Elvis, Doc Watson, Bruce Hornsby, and a collection of bluegrass favorites including Jim & Jessie McReynods, Ricky Skaggs, The Seldom Scene and a couple dozen others; all of them covering Bill Monroe’s music with some loyal to the arrangements while others putting their own spin on it. Join Dave Stroud once again for a collection of sounds from those dusty digital bins, those deeper wells, here on Sonoma County Community’s own community radio. Free Form. Free Speech. No Bull. Your alternative radio station in the North Bay.
