If you follow this blog for Bakersfield and Beyond, you may have discovered that there is not always a lot of planning that goes into the shows. The main objective is to go in there and play great music that is associated in some way, shape or form, with the Bakersfield Sound. We think we do a pretty good job. Tonight was no exception. We kicked off the show with some new tracks from JP Harris and the Tough Choices new CD, Home is Where the Hurt Is – great job JP! Something from Chuck Prophet‘s new CD, a great California singer/songwriter who happens to be performing locally at Rancho Nicasio on Sunday, August 31. Rancho is a great local roadhouse and music venue not far from Point Reyes Station in the town of Nicasio. Worth a visit, fer sure.
Then we were off on songs about trucks. Hey, there are even MORE songs about trucks. Let’s make it a truck set! Oh, and since we were remiss about celebrating Don Rich’s birthday last week we played a few from Don.
Oops, we haven’t played many women this evening….time for some awesome Bakersfield sound tunes from the ladies.
Bakersfield and Beyond did not have a show during the recent on-air Summer Watershed Campaign, but it’s still going on! KWMR received a $10K generous matching grant and if you like the fact that this little radio station spins the Bakersfield Sound, show your appreciation with a donation and your dollars will be doubled.
Hope you enjoyed the show!
