Show #199 – Hi-Yo Silver!

As we were finishing up tonight’s show, we commented that this was show #199 and that seemed like a lot.  During tonight’s show, we played an episode of the Lone Ranger’s radio show.  The number of Lone Ranger episodes on radio numbers 2,956.  We thought 199 was a lot.  Interspersed among snippets of the 30 minute radio show, we snuck in some tunes and came up with some possible future show themes.  Hmmmm.  Stay tuned!

Show #198 – Celebrating Immigrants

A quote from the newly appointed California State Attorney General Xavier Becerra that was printed in New York Times was the inspiration for the show last night.

“We didn’t become the sixth most powerful economy in the world by kicking people out of our state. Whether it was the Okies or the Mexican immigrants or the folks who have made Silicon Valley what it is today, we welcome people who want to work hard.”

It isn’t difficult, with a bit of listening to see how music brings people together and melds traditions and cultures to create new sounds, and the Bakersfield Sound is no exception. Since the show is Bakersfield and Beyond, we have some leeway to mix in other tunes.

This may have been one of our strongest themed shows, and we are sneaking up on show #200. Thanks for listening and digging the tunes.

Big thanks to Jonny for “tipping our show,” a new feature on KWMR. Check it out!
