Fool's Day

Fool’s Day

It’s a fool’s paradise for all of us as April Fool’s Day lands on a day where Deeper Roots debuts a new episode. So why not take advantage, I say! We’ll fill the airwaves today with songs about fools today and add a garnish of novelty to keep the show moving on notes that are as light as air. Foolish hearts, king of fools, poor little fools, and fools who fall in love. We’ll be featuring a blend of country from Charlie Rich and Dwight Yoakam, blues with Etta James and Delbert McClinton, vocals from The Cadillacs and Frankie Lymon, and the so many more on this April Fool’s Day, 2022. Come on along…and don’t forget that tomorrow is the annual April Fool’s Day Parade in Occidental, home to KOWS.
