Willie Gray & The Gossamer Sisters were our guests for the entire show. They played numerous cool songs and joked around with us, all live in the studio. The band consists of Nate Westgor of Willie’s American Guitars, Mary Rancone, and Deb Brown. As usual, the talented and lovely Angie Pykonen sat in with me on the show.
