Don't Wanna

Don’t Wanna

Theme time and I’m going to break it to you slow…it’s all about the negative and those that refuse. If there’s something that’s more prevalent in our lives than saying that we ‘want to’…it’s when we don’t want to. The ‘desire not to’ seems to be winning over the ‘desire to’ in our show today. We’ve got a collection of songs that all begin with the phrase “I Don’t Want” in some form or another. We’ll bring you the early sounds of The Blue Sky Boys and some country sounds of Jimmy Wakely from the hayloft, blues and soul from Magic Sam and that firecracker Sugar Pie DeSanto, and plenty of Americana from The Blasters, Wanda Jackson and Doug Sahm in our show today. It’s going to be a romp because there’s a lot of fodder to choose from when stubbornness is the theme. Tune into community radio for Sonoma County to find out. I don’t want to spoil the theme…but not ‘wanting to’ isn’t always a bad thing…
