Last night was our annual Top 10 of the previous year show. We both compile our lists independently so the listener is treated to what would amount to a Top 20. This list isn’t necessarily a Top 10 list of what was released in the previous year, but a list compiled from songs we played or heard in the previous year.
Last year, there was no one song that made it to both of our lists. This year, however, there was one song that made it to both lists. Our pal, Dave Gleason, with his “Blue Side Of The World” from his 2010 release, Turn And Fade, made both of our lists. Dave is an outstanding guitar player and singer/songwriter and we are proud to play his music on our show. Dave’s moved from the Los Angeles area to Nashville to be closer to where one needs to be to really make your mark on the music scene – and I’m sure he’s bringing his blend of the Bakersfield Sound to Nashville.
So, here’s the list and some clips to enjoy. Our Top 10 lists ends with the Wynn Stewart song and with some time left, we slipped in Johnny Horton’s North To Alaska as a tribute to a friend who is moving to Alaska and a little 77 El Deora in honor of their releasing a new CD. Thanks for listening!
How bout this for a small radio station studio! Very cool!
The video of Wynn Stewart performing It’s Such A Pretty World Today can’t be embedded, but it’s totally worth checking out. Click on the link and watch! And then, as if it can’t get better, check out this clip of Wynn Stewart performing the song with the Buckaroos. Fantastic!
