RAMSAY MIDWOOD, ERIK KOSKINEN + BIG SANDY: Ramsay Midwood and Erik Koskinen were our in-studio guests today. They performed a few songs live, plus we played some tracks from Ramsay’s upcoming CD “Larry Buys A Lighter”.

Thanks to Big Sandy (of Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys) for calling in from the road. They were coming to town for a gig at Lee’s Liquor Lounge. Appropriately enough, we had “Tequilla Calling” playing when Sandy called.

New music, in addition to the advance tracks by Ramsay Midwood, included The Michael Lewis Band (with Sonny Burgess, Billy Lee Riley & Travis Wammack), The 44’s, and Steve Earle’s most recent.
