A busy show this week.  I had The Dustbowl Revival stop by the station and play a couple of tracks from their soon to be released self-titled album. They are a high energy band mixing traditional string instruments with trombone and trumpet to create a fun original take on how their music is created. I also played so Jimmy LaFave and Allman Brothers tunes to honor the recent passing of LaFave and Greg Allman. And on top of that we started our summer membership drive this week. Thanks to all the listeners who called or went on line and pledged their support to this great community radio station that we call KRVM.

I first want to thank Mark and Nancy for covering me while I was away on vacation. If you want to see their playlists, please go to to find our spinatron link.
I spent the end of my vacation checking off one of my bucket-list items by attending a couple of days of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. As anyone who attends these kind of festivals you know you have to make your choices and you won't be able to see all of the musicians you want to see. My wife and I did catch several of the bands I play on  my show including Feufollet, Beausoleil , The Batture Boys and The North Mississippi Allstars (at Tipitinas). I also caught Stevie Wonder who is a great american artist who I admire and had never seen before. He put on an outstanding show at this year's festival which will be a memory I will never forget.
