Repeat of last show….but check out what is coming up next!

Tonight you will be having a de ja vu if you listened to the last Bakersfield and Beyond show. Mike and I have generously donated our time spot for some valuable KWMR programmer training. Hope you enjoy it as much the second time!

However… check this out! After a recent benefit concert for KWMR, I received a letter and a CD from RJ Jones. He attended the concert with his friends Jack and Molly Tuttle (amazing bluegrass duo – father and daughter). Why is this a big deal? Well I think it’s very cool to get a CD containing 13 tracks of previously unreleased music, all but one of the songs having been written by RJ himself and recorded in Bakersfield with the Buckaroos. RJ worked for Blue Book Music in the early 70’s. He came in to possession of these tracks recently and they are fabulous! You may recognize songs such as Ozark Mountain Lullaby, written by RJ Jones and recorded by Buck Owens, Susan Raye, Tammy Wynette and Joe Sun.

RJ will be heading up to Point Reyes Station on March 3rd to join Mike and I in the studio for Bakersfield and Beyond. This is a show you will not want to miss.

I’m surely looking forward to playing some of these tracks for you – I know you will enjoy them as much as I do, and talking with RJ about his experiences in Bakersfield. Hope you can tune in!

You’ll hear this show again

The third show of 2011 is in the bag.  Bakersfield & Beyond will not be live during the February 17 show.  Instead, you’ll hear a rebroadcast of this show.  Being a full-time radio station, there are times when, in order to do programmer trainings, we need to somewhat automate the programming and use the studio for trainings.  February 17 happens to be one of those training sessions.  So, hope you liked this show cuz yer gonna hear it again on the 17th!

Some really neat things that have happened include Wanda Jackson releasing a brand new album produced by Jack White formerly of the White Stripes and currently of The Raconteurs and other various projects.  We can’t wait to get our hands on a copy of the new album.  Hopefully, we’ll have it to play for the next live show.  Here are some clips of Wanda that have been circulation on YouTube and the playlist from tonight.  Here’s the link to the interview we did with Wanda a while back.  Enjoy!
