February 2016 Freewheelin' Archives

The Cactus Blossoms paid me a visit on the show today.  They performed a few songs live, we played tracks from their new release, and shot the breeze.  Other new music included The Pines, Paul Burch, Mick Rhodes & The Hard Eight, The Record Company, and Matt Anderson. Other music by the likes of Maria Muldaur, Cari Lee & The Contenders, Heavy Trash, The Morrels, J Geils Band and more. 

New tracks included Ian McFeron,  The Junkie Twins,  Dion,  John Del Toro Richardson, and Paul Burch.  A tribute to Dan Hicks, who passed away last week.

Angie Pykonen and I did our annual "Love Stinks" show… our tongue-in-cheek look at the flip side of sugary love songs. Broken hearts, you dumped me, rot in hell, you cheated, boo-hoo, eff u, woe is me, etc.  Light a candle, sip some wine, and cry yourself to sleep.

Lots of new and advance tracks this week, including: David Johansen, Peter Wolf, Lucinda Williams, Cliff Hillis, Fantastic Negrito, Lee Harvey Osmond, Charles Bradley, Joe Bonamassa, Ronnie Spector & The Ronettes, Night Madness, Hollis Brown with Bo Diddley, Ty Taylor and more. Also played Bruce Springsteen (with Flo & Eddie) ahd G Love & Special Sauce because they're coming to town. Older material included songs by Mike Ness, Willie Dixon, Mike Henderson, CCR, Michelle Shocked, Little Feat and more.
