Hi Music Friends,
I’ll try and regularly post playlists here, and soon I’ll add a widget to make them searchable by Artist, Album or Date. And once that’s done, I’ll try and add in the last 20 years of assorted playlists from a whole bunch of past shows. Music Nerds Paradise!
A program scattered with random hits from the 1970’s along with new music from Elvis Costello & The Imposters, Valerie June & Mavis Staples, Ana Egge, Rokia Koné, and Tori Amos. Recovered gems from Leo Nocentelli, Johnny Cash and Joni Mitchell. Rounding out the program with Bessie Smith and Ray Charles.
New music from Jim Lauderdale, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Tom Morello (& Chris Stapleton), Shovels and Rope, Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters, and Jack White. Not a bad haul. We also hear from Billy Strings, Sierra Farrell, The Felice Brothers, Yola, The Meters, and more!
Inevitably, a lot of music from The Chieftains to honor the passing of the great Paddy Moloney. Some of their performances with Del McCoury, The Rolling Stones, Lisa Hannigan, Marianne Faithfull, etc. Plus, I’m still loving the new albums from Brandi Carlile and Jason Isbell.

An interview and live performance from the extraordinary songwriter and producer, T Bone Burnett, taped last week at the Great American Music Hall where T Bone was performing. Betty Beasley will be filling in for Bonnie this Thursday, but she’ll be playing the interview Bonnie did with T Bone Burnett shortly after 8:00PM.
