Highlights include:Zappa’s “Chunga’s Revenge” was released Oct. 23, 1970, so we celebrated the 42nd anniversary of that as part of our “We Hope You’re Ready for Flo & Eddie” segment, plus new music by The Wallflowers, Iris Dement, Widespread Panic, Charlie Peacock, John Hiatt, Darrell Scott & Tim O’Brien, Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs, and Lindi Ortega. Older songs included James McMurtry, Eilen Jewell, Lonnie Donegan, Son Volt, Grayson Capps, The Doors, Paul Thorn, BR5-49, etc.

Largely African show morphs into Latin sounds & rhythms by the end.

What a full program tonight: tons of new releases, a few classics, a number of eclectic Swiss picks, and part 1 of a special mix from Manwel T (originally done for Terry C’s Echo Beach on WLUW-FM). The big new releases included: the excellent “Red Shadow Landing” album from All India Radio; Steve Steppa’s fine new rootical album “Zion Door”; U-Roy’s sweet new “Pray Fi Di People” album; Beats Antique’s new “Contraption – Vol.2” EP; the cool “Synchronicity Dub” single from Wavewhore & ACEtone Studios; and Fu-Step’s dubwise “No More Vibes to Waste” album.

Live music from Katy Vernon & some stray bird songs for fall!

Southside Desire joined Spin with Cyn, previewing songs from their new album, “Songs to Love and Die For” and favorites and talked about their upcoming release show!

  Today we were pleased to inaugurate a new (and experimental) feature on "Good and Country"—"Co-Host For A Day". Our special guest was Bruce Krohn. He is with a local band (The Dakota Ramblers) and shared music and stories with us. It was a real pleasure to have him as a guest. If YOU would like to be a co-host for a day, no radio experience is necessary. You can bring country music if you wish, or you can just come in, hang out and help me spin and announce the tunes.
