Show #157 – Mini Themes

By the time we rolled out the first several songs, we had figured out a theme.  First half hour consisted of more modern, contemporary Bakersfield Sound songs.  The second half hour was more or less a tribute to the music of Dave Alvin and John Doe and variations of each of their collaborations with other artist – Dave Alvin & The Guilty Women, John Doe & The Sadies, and The Knitters – featuring both Dave Alvin and John Doe.  We went back to the old classics for the third half hour and hit up some more rockin’ songs that came out of the 80s L.A. punk/cowboy scene…more or less.  It was a good show.
