February 15th, 2015

Hi All,

New shows almost every week here, but I've been doing a bad job with the blog in 2015. 

Lost the playlist for the 15th, but here's some of the stuff we did.

Talked about Bob's delightfully complex speech , listened to the Mellencamp song he quotes, said I was pretty excited that James McMurtry has a new record coming out (man is he somethin' special...watch the video on the link), talked about this guy and his upcoming visit to MSU, Mankato (man, is he something special...), and we played lots of stuff from Robert Earl Keen's new bluegrass record.  A fun morning.  Thanks for listening.
