Tonight’s show should out do my previous shows. Anyway, that is my goal. I like to keep raising the bar for myself. That way it stays a challenge, which in turn, usually produces an welcomed intrusion on the listener’s ears. Just look at this playlist and tell me what you think.
If you ever want to request something, this would be the avenue to do so. I don’t take requests during the show, because I already have it all mapped out. I don’t mean to be a snob about it, I just like to keep my rhythm going. I think most of my listeners understand – If you don’t, well, there are other stations out there.
Anyway, here is tonight’s playlist –
Steely Dan – East St. Louis Toodle – Oo (the usual intro)
J.J. Cale – Call Me the Breeze (dedicated to Lisa S. She knows why)
Poco – Another Time Around - from Cantamos
Drive-By Truckers – The Deeper In – from Decoration Day (2003)
Robert Earl Keen – Shades of Gray – his album Picnic
The Earl Scruggs Revue – Back Door Love Ain’t Got No Cover from 1972’s Rockin’ ‘Cross the Country
Billy Joe Shaver – I Want Some More – followed by Tenntex – from his 1993 Tramp On Your Street album
Lyle Lovett – Townes Van Zandt’s White Freightliner Blues – From his latest – Release Me
Pedal Steel Transmission – Maritime Glare – Pedal Steel Transmission hails from Chicago and most recently became Hummingbiird (not a misspelling) – soooooo underated. Little is known about them by me anyway other than I think they’re severely underrated!
Little Feat – Lafayette Railroad from 1972’s Dixie Chicken
Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen – It Should Have Been Me from their 1972 release of Country Cassanova.
The Only Sons – The Natural – Brand new – Actually will be released on April 24th via This Is American Music – and it is – tremendous album!
Bob Dylan – I Want You from his 1966 release – Blonde On Blonde
Derek & the Dominos – Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out from the classic 1970 Layla with Eric Clapton and Duane Allman
The Sir Douglas Quintet – Don’t Bug Me – From 1+1+1=4 (1970)
Wilco – Walken from 2007’s Sky Blue Sky
The Bottle Rockets – Pretty Little Angie
Independence 76 – Burn Ban I know practically nothing about this band other than they are from Oklahoma City and I like them a lot!
James McMurtry – Freeway View – from his spectacular Live in Europe album
Laika & the Cosmonauts – Magic Bullet – Just a little different end to the show. Giving If Madrid a night off – Dig it!
So there you have it. I’ll be on the air at 8pm on KOOK 93.5 in Junction and KERV 1230 AM in Kerrville. You can stream the show on the web as well by clicking on the KOOK 93.5/KERV 1230 AM button above.
