Thursday, April 30 KWMR show – Bakersfield North

We hope that you can join us this coming Thursday for some great Bakersfield Sound. We will be exploring the Bakersfield Sound and it’s reaches northward. Buck Owens spent some time in Tacoma, Washington – in fact that is where he met Don Rich (originally from Olympia, WA). Tim Hus (http://www.timhus.ca/) from Canada will be joining us via telephone and of course we will touch base with Dr. BLT (originally from Canada). There are some great tunes out of the Pacific Northwest, the SF Bay Area and other northern environs. Got a request? Send it on in, we’ll see what we can do.

Wanda Jackson!

Wanda Jackson (http://www.wandajackson.com/) spent some formative years in Bakersfield after moving there with her parents. Wanda was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Mike and I interviewed Wanda recently (and we will post these audio files soon, I promise). We then saw her perform in Petaluma at the Mystic Theatre. It was a great show. Red Meat (http://www.redmeat.net/)  opened for Wanda and then played backup for the show. An aside. Red Meat will be performing at Far West Fest on July 25th in Point Reyes Station –  ( a KWMR – http://www.kwmr.org fundraiser) you will be hearing a lot more about this in the near future. Should be a great show.
