Leftover Salmon stopped by KRVM this afternoon on their way to a gig at the Hi-Fi Music Hall. They are really excited about where the band is at these days with the current line-up of Drew Emmitt, Vince Herman, Greg Garrison, Andy Thorn, Alwyn Robinson, and the newest member Eric Deutsch on keyboards. Emmitt and Herman say that with this band that they can do what ever they want from the traditional bluegrass tune to Cajun to jam rock all in the same set. Plans are to go into the studio in May with a new album coming out by the end of the year. They may say the name stinks but, I love me some Leftover Salmon!!!

I started to write this a week ago and was pulled away by family needs. My radio show is certainly something I enjoy doing, but it is a volunteer job and sometimes life has other plans.

This week we started our winter fund drive. If you listen to KRVM please help support the station with your financial contribution. If you read this blog, please tell them Tim sent you.

Robert Earl Keen was in town last night and put on a great show for the crowd at the WOW Hall. I liked many of the songs he played, but he did not play "Shades Of Gray" so I had to play it on my show today. I also had to start off with my wife's favorite band since I didn't fit them into last week's favorites. And then I had to play some Chris Chandler & Paul Benoit who were also in my group of favorites for the year but didn't make last weeks show since their songs are so long and I had too much to play anyway.
From there I moved into some new albums to the station and some folks coming to our area in the near future. Be sure to tune in next Saturday when I will be talking with David Olney about his music.
