Show #222 – New Music Featuring Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives

It was the 222nd Bakersfield and Beyond show. It’s not a world record by any means, many of our fellow programmers have been on the air every week for over 18 years at KWMR. There are many committed DJs at the station. It was a fun show. We opted to stick with some newer releases and to promote Marty Stuart and the Fabulous Superlatives concert that is happening in Petaluma at the Mystic Theatre on Friday, January 12, 2018. The amazing musicalogist and performer Deke Dickerson opening with a solo set. Somehow the phenomenon that is Kenny Vaughan came up. The dude is everywhere, including in Marty Stuart’s band.

Amanda regaled how once in Nashville she saw him playing with Audrey Auld one night, the next day he was playing at a bar on music row, and then moments later, with a complete wardrobe change, he was playing with Marty Stuart at the Ryman Auditorium. Bill Majoue, a member of the KWMR Programming Committee (community representative) and avid listener, dropped in to tell his Kenny Vaughan story. He had seen him when he played with Lucinda Williams. Kenny also played with Rodney Crowell. When he was a young player, his instructor was Bill Frisell and he played in a progressive jazz band. He was also in a punk band.

In 2002, Vaughan was inducted into the Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame and in 2006 he was awarded Instrumentalis of the Year and given a lifetime achievement award for being an instrumentalist by the Americana Music Association. On his one album, “V,” Marty Stuart plays in the band.

We played some fun tunes, including some traditional Buck and Merle. Keeping it real at KWMR.

Show #221 – That’s A Wrap, 2017!

Kind of amazing that we have been at this for 221 Bakersfield and Beyond shows, but that is a fact. Tune in next year for show number 222! Other than digging a little deeper on some of the BB vinyl troves, it was just a regular show. No real theme of note. We did get the opportunity to talk to one of our favorite people, Robert Price. Robert is the author of the book “The Bakersfield Sound – How a Generation of Displaced Okies Revolutionized American Music.” No update on the missing Trout’s sign….yet. We will continue to follow this topic.

No fake news on our show! We did get a few requests and were able to honor all of them. Happy to be among the 95 volunteer programmers that grace the airwaves of West Marin. There are some fine shows on KWMR. If you enjoy this program, we suggest you check out “The Silver Dollar Jukebox,” “Off the Cuff,“Midnight in Luxembourg,” “Running with Scissors,” and “After Dark.” This is just the tip of the iceberg of great music programs.

Happy New Year from Amanda and Mike!
