If you want to listen to the archives, please note. The show doesn’t start until 3 minutes 25 seconds into the archive….prior to that, it’s old news.
New music included Blaze Foley, Skip Soder, Hot Club Sandwich, Mose Allison, Jimmy LaFave, Nick Gravenities, Molly Maher, Eilen Jewell, and The 4 on the Floor
Anige Pykonen was in the studio for the show. We played a couple of rockabilly tracks to preview the show she and I did on her radio show “IN YOUREAR” later that night. If you dig rockabilly and want to rock out for a couple of hours, click here In Your Ear

Punk rock love to Greg for filling in for me this week – and doing yet again – another amazing job with the show. I had a meeting for teaching next semester early in the morning and no time to prep – so basically…. yeah – Greg had to counteract my not punk rock stuff with some solid punk rock
Here’s a bit of a rattlesnake! Radio Pocho takes you into the world of Chicano Rock and Rock en Español. But of course we’ve got the usual assortment of disco and funk tunes to make you shake your rump and the slow jams that’ll have you holding someone tight.
New music this morning from Mountain Man, a female trio out of Vermont from which you will hear a lot, I am sure. Also new local music from Poor Weather Club, and a Caribbean-Americana hybrid from Big Head Todd the Monsters, Rocksteady, the title track to their new album.
