July 19 Playlist


Mixed the music up pretty good tonight.  Old, new, punk, and country.  There is a documentary about one of the Bakersfield Sound pioneers, Billy Mize, that his grandson, William Saunders is trying to create.  Some of the filming has been shot, they are now trying to raise funds for post-production work such as editing.  Here is the link to the Kickstarter page where one could donate to this excellent effort to keep alive the contributions of folks  like Billy Mize who were instrumental in the creation of this great West Coast Country music known as the Bakersfield Sound.
