Thanksgiving day playlist

What a fun show our Thanksgiving day show was.  We didn’t have a theme lined up before the show but decided right before the show to play mini-sets of artists that worked out quite well.

Echoing Amanda’s sentiments about being thankful for local community radio, I’m also thankful for local friends who fed me an outstanding turkey dinner prior to the show, another friend who I went on a great mountain bike ride (aptly named the Appetite Seminar) with in the morning, and my family who visited earlier in the week.  We are also thankful to Dr. BLT for spreading the Bakersfield & Beyond message and sending us his music to play.

So, here’s the playlist and a couple of youtube clips of some fun music.

I can’t embed this Wynn Stewart clip so you’ll have to click on the link to view it.

I really like the soulful trumpet in the background on this Tom Russell song.

And I thought these were interesting in searching for Clarence White.

Thankful for local community radio!

What are you thankful for? There is much to be thankful for including the fact that there are still independent locally operated community radio stations like KWMR. The station where we broadcast from is a special place in our community. Over 90 volunteer programmers bring listeners music, talk and news programs and are a hub for the community. Bakersfield and Beyond will be on live tomorrow night – Thanksgiving and will bring you some great tunes over the airwaves. So kick back, tune your dials to 90.5 or 89.9 FM or stream us on the world wide web at Ride that L Tryptophan high from your tasty meal while listening to some Bakersfield (or thus influenced) tunes. And learn the truth behind “Act Naturally”. Happy Thanksgiving!
