Patrick and I took a look at roots/Americana releases for 2009 this morning, with some great input from you! We only had time for 32 songs, though. Some key releases were not aired, but need to mentioned as greats from this year: Levon Helm’s Electric Dirt, Jason Isbell the 400 Unit (one of the best according to the Americana Music Association), Joe Pernice, the Wailin’ Jennys live album. Check the playlist to see which ones we did get to. Thanks to Jackson Buck:, Larry Englund: and Ellen Stanley: for their suggestions, too!

“Canciones de lucha”. Latin American songs related to social movements and political struggles. (It is reassuring to find out that, knowingly or not, many of them take to heart Emma Goldman’s famous statement: “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution”). The last ½ hour of the program is a small retrospective of a fascinating and controversial icon: Carmen Miranda.
