May 24th and May 31st, 2014

Hi All,

The 24th was all Bob honor of his 74th birthday.  For the 31st we turned to Johnny Cash--spent the morning with just one release--something we seldom do on the show but that seemed appropriate. 

Talked a bit today about David Letterman--I really enjoyed this article from that fancy magazine I read every so often.

May 17th, 2015

Hi All,

Today's show featured John Prine's Record Store Day release.  We played the whole thing from start to finish...and it was great. 

Played a couple other songs just because the record didn't take up the entire show, including this one to start things off.  

Had a little time left and played a few from this, which is also something special.

May 3rd, 2015

Hi All,

Had another new show this weekend.  But the playlist moved through the wash.

Played good stuff from this guy and played this really cool new artist  and followed her song with this one from this not so new artist.  In between played some new stuff from James McMurtry's real nice new record, complicated game and some stuff from Max Gomez, guy who warmed up for Mr. McMurtry the other night at the Fine Line Music Cafe

Thanks for listening...and for the help with the recent Spring Pledge Drive.
