Playlist for February 18, 2010

Another super fun show in the bag.  That hour and fifty minutes goes by way too fast.  We played a couple of mini-sets.  One had a little cajun feel with Gilbeau & Parsons’ “Sweet Sugar Blues,” Wynn Stewart’s “Sha-Marie,” and “Valse de Balfa” from Aux Cajunals who is playing at the Dance Palace here in town on March 5.

The other set of music we played featured Homer Joy.  We interviewed Homer back last year.  Homer wrote the “Streets of Bakersfield” that Dwight Yoakam and Buck Owens turned into a big hit.  Homer had a heart transplant several years ago and it seems it’s not working like it should.  Homer’s been at the UCLA Medical Center undergoing tests to see what they can do to get him back on his feet.  Thoughts and prayers go out to Homer.

With the passing of Doug Fiegler, the lead singer of The Knack and the songwriter of one biggest hits of the New Wave explosion of the late ’70s, we had to play My Sharona.  It’s still a great song to crank and recall 1979.

Thanks all for listening and here are a couple clips for your enjoyment.

Gotta love skinny ties.  Check out this one for the original video (embedding is disabled so you’ll have to view it at this link:  My Sharona.
