October 2015 Freewheelin' Archives

LINDI ORTEGA stopped by the show with guitar in hand. We chatted and played some music.  Also, new releases by Reverend Shawn, Billy Gibbons & The BFG's, Chris Isaac.  And, the usual kitchen sink worth of other stuff including Dave & Phil Alvin, Taj Mahal, Flo & Eddie, The Jayhawks, Shemekia Copeland, Hayes Carll, Lydia Loveless, Lamont Cranston,  The Joel Johnson Band, and Willie Murphy.


Ron Thums sat in for Jackson today, taking full advantage of the dictionary definition of freewheelin': "To move, live or play freely or irresponsibly, heedless of social norms or niceties."

Returned after vacationing in New England….lots of new music came in while I was gone; played some today, including Au Pair (featuring Gary Louris), the Yawpers, Squeeze, Drive By Truckers, John Mayall, Cat Stevens, Gabe Barnett & Them Rounders, Steve Forbert, Reverend Shawn Amos, Billy Gibbons & BFG’s, Bob Dylan, Leem Lubany, Korey Dane, Alex Bleeker & The Freaks….didn’t know them all, but they sounded great. Plus, some old familiar artists such as Flo & Eddie, Nilsson, Paul Cebar, The Doors with John Lee Hooker (or is it John Lee Hooker with the Doors?), Bonnie Raitt and more. Thanks to Ron Thums for sitting in for me last week.
