Show #141 – Music after a rainy day

It was a real gullywasher yesterday. Some welcome precipitation after a long, dry summer and fall. So how does one best celebrate such a stupendous change in the weather? Well, play some Honkey Tonk! Some good West Coast California Sound, something with a backbeat and some pedal steel maybe? Yes! Some old and some new. Mix it up a bit.

It was a pretty organic show, complete with local weather updates and warnings about the giant puddle on Shoreline Highway.

Show #140 – The Haggards pledge drive

Pledge Drive shows are pretty hectic and busy and often the good material gets buried in the “pitching” and banter. But if you bring in a heavy hitter like The Haggards (or Smelley Kelley) you should be in good shape. The Haggards did not disappoint. No sireee.

The clip above was from our previous show with Robert Price that The Haggards crashed (after being invited). It being a pledge show, we of course, forgot to video part of the performance. Doh!

We thank everyone who contributed to KWMR during the drive. If you dig what this station does, any time is a good time to contribute. In fact, you can do so by clicking HERE.

Many thanks.
