Playlist from 10-15-09 – Drinking Songs!

How do you better a Bakersfield & Beyond show? Pick songs that are about bars and drinking, of course! Seriously, there are a lot of songs with references to drinking among the Bakersfield Sound genre. We’ve got enough songs for several more shows. Our friend, Dr. BLT, even sent us his song The Bottle’s Getting Bigger. We even stretched the limits of “Beyond” by playing Tom Waits and AC/DC.

We’ll be back on Thursday the 22nd as we flip Thursday schedules with Shorty’s Bunkhouse on KWMR. We’ll be back to the normal schedule on November 12.

And thanks to Dave Alvin for posting a link to this Gary Stewart song, She’s Acting Single (I’m Drinking Doubles).  Gary Stewart has a fantastic voice and we’ll be sure to explore more of his music in the future.  He had a tragic life that you can read about here.
