Show #241 – October Birthdays

Now that we have an official spreadsheet of Bakersfield-esque birthdays, we made sure we did some celebrating.  Some folks are still alive, some are not, but the music they left us is the best.  This show, we celebrated Bonny Owens, Chris Gaffney, Susan Raye, Tommy Collins, and Marty Stuart.  And then we played some old, some new, and all of it fun.

Show #240 – New Neighbors

This show, #240, will now be followed by “Highway of Heartaches,” hosted and produced by our good friends Owen Bly and Smelley Kelley of the band Red Meat.  Come for the Bakersfield, stay for the Heartache.  Welcome to Thursday, Owen and Smelley.

It also represents a new level in technology in the reporting of the songs played.  In the past the playlists were manually uploaded to Spinitron, a playlist management system for non-commercial community radio stations.  Now, due to the technology in song recognition software, Spinitron knows what’s being played and creates the playlist automatically.  It’s like magic.
