Silver Wings and Power Supplies

For a couple of weeks, the sound quality at KWMR had been deteriorating.  A horrible thing for a radio station.  It was determined by a crack team that the power supply that powers the engineering board needed replacement.  As it turned out the replacement power supply arrived today and with the team in place, we went off the air for a few minutes during Bakersfield & Beyond to swap it out.  Less than five minutes later, with the new power supply in place, it was immediately clear that that did the trick.  The sound quality improved dramatically and many of the features of the board that had failed were back on-line.  Oh happy days!

We started the show with four covers of “Silver Wings,” written by Merle Haggard.  Then we just went where the music took us.

It’s a double shot Thursday.  Two in a row from your favorites and in one case, three.  But that’s because our friend Maurice Tani and 77 El Deora are playing this weekend at Rancho Nicasio.  It’s always a great time at Rancho.  Great music, great food.  A great way to spend an evening.  Okay, so here’s the playlist below.  I think this will work.  It’s pulled from the Spinitron playlist that we fill out live during each show.  We had some callers who were enjoying the show so we say “Thank you!”
