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

Tonight we blasted off into space on a summer “Lunar Lunatics” special…commemorating the first moon landing 7/20/1969. This part of the show was planned. What wasn’t planned until days before was that we would also be doing a tribute to the late Lincoln “Sugar” Minott. Sadly, Sugar passed away at the young age of 54 on July 10th. This dubwise trip to the moon, and the far reaches of space is dedicated to the memory of the great Sugar Minott.
