New tracks this morning include something from John Hiatt’s upcoming October 12 release, Marc Ribot, The Stryker Brothers, and Asleep at the Wheel. Our focus artist will be Steve Earle and we’ll hear from Elephant Revival, Kacey Musgraves, Rosanne Cash, and James McMurtry in the show today. Fall weather is upon us as we shake loose the summer heat. School’s back in session and the freeway’s beginning to back up well into the later morning as we wait for the herds to thin at the local JC. Small town California.
