Bakersfield Sound: Old and New this Thursday on KWMR

We hope you can join us this Thursday, August 20th for a fun show. Back from Bakersfield and our visit with local musicians who provided us with some CD’s of their work plus the visit to Dark Star Records and Books where we infused the Kern County economy with a little boost of cash (thanks Dan!) we are ready to play some great tunes.

We picked up some fun vinyl including more Merle Haggard and a full album of Bonnie Owens tunes. We found a cool CD of all Joe Maphis guitar tunes to ad to our collection as well.

Of course BLT has been pumping out some new tunes and sent them our way including his brand new It’s Hot As Hell In Bakersfield (but it has been cooler lately). Maybe BLT should write a California draught tune to ease the water woes of the Golden State?

We’ll also play some Meestro, Souljar, Smoking Armadillo’s and Jeff Williams tunes this week. But my new favorite is Penny Marie. We met her briefly at the Crystal Palace where she was enjoying the Buckaroo’s show with Buddy Owens along with her very cute son. Penny Marie is going places, both literally and figuratively. She mailed off a pre-release CD to  Mike and I and I am in love with it. She does not skimp on putting her all into these songs and Penny Marie is heading out to Nashville soon. We wish her the best and will continue to track her rising star.

Tune in via the local airwaves at 90.5 FM in Point Reyes Station or 89.9 FM in  Bolinas or stream us at www.kwmr.org.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Excited to hear some of Jeff’s material on there as well as Soulajar. We are all great friends, residing in the same neighborhood in B-town. Sounds like you have a fresh stack of Bakersfieldy goodness to sort through.

  2. I’m glad I had a chance to get Penny Marie on one of my recordings before she took off to Nashville where I have no doubt she’ll become a big star. Now I can say, “Hey, here’s that big star on my country cover of Billie Jean.”

    I think her farwell party is tonight, though I have to teach out of town so I can’t make it. I wish her well, and would like to request Penny Marie’s “I’m Not Going to Stay,” if you have it. As the heat build’s demand’s also rising for “It’s Hot as Hell in Bakersfield Again (Hotter Mix),” so I’m not going to jinx it by requesting the song.

    Of course, I’m eagerly looking forward to all of it, old and new, and to the show as a whole. Catch you Thursday night!
