Show #193 – Battle of The Sexes

Happy December! Snuck up on everyone and now it’s the last month of the year! Other things happen when you aren’t paying attention, like the first set of Bakersfield and Beyond being busilly pulled together by Mike, while Amanda set up the playlist and dinked around on the Internet.

Yep, the first half hour of the show was an impressive showing of dudes who make great music. Not complaining, just wanting a bit of equity. Some sparring banter took place at the top of the hour, and low and behold – bring on the sisters!

Some great honky tonk women singing about, what else…men.

Then things just stayed fun, dipping back into some tracks that we had not played in a while and mixing it up with fun and more serious tunes. Hope you enjoyed the show. You can catch the archive HERE until December 15, 2016.

We played some new Sturgill Simpson, but this is from his first album, and due to FCC regulations, this can’t be played on the radio, but it’s a fun song!

We love Patsy Montana, here she is “back in the day.”

And something from Cindy Lee Berryhill.

Show #192 – Dan Bern Vinyl Sandwich

Another one of those shows that starts off in one direction, veers, and heads off somewhere else.  We organized the bags of vinyl we have today into more distinct categories so we could have a clearer idea of where to search for particular albums during each show.  One bag has the more traditional Bakersfield artists – Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Wynn Stewart, and yes, we included Waylon Jennings there too.  Another bag has a bit more contemporary artists still steeped in the Bakersfield Sound – The Flying Burrito Brothers (The Byrds, Gram Parsons), “A Town South of Bakersfield” compilation albums, Elvis Costello’s country album, Dwight Yoakam…  The other two are split between older compilation albums and other country artists who weren’t necessarily Bakersfield, but we who we like.

But first we played a track from Dan Bern and decided to fit a Dan Bern track amongst the selections of vinyl.  The first hour was from the more traditional Bakersfield bag and the second was from the more contemporary Bakersfield influenced bag.  Dan Bern?  Not really sure how it happened.  Amanda pulled his CD from the station library to play a track and then we just kept playing.  Kind of typical for one of our shows.
