This week I am visiting some of my Southern Routes with the music I played.
Some people may think that I was a little off the "Americana" path by playing such bands as the B52's and Widespread Panic on my show. But, both of these bands have roots in Athens, Georgia and that was the branch that I was taking. The songs that I chose fit the the southern theme of the show.
Athens is a hot spot for creating great southern rock bands. I started the second set off with the Drive By Truckers who also have roots in Athens. From there we begin to wader around the south to Mississsippi and Texas with bands like The Subdudes and the Mother Truckers.
In the second hour I give a "Little" Americana nod to St. Patricks Day with a set that includes Rodney Crowell's "Glasgow Girl" (I know, Glasgow is in Scottland not Ireland), Casey Neil's new album "Brooklin Bridge, and Billy Bragg's new single "I keep Faith".
Anyway, If you are reading this blog, you may have heard this show or others on Eugene's best community radio station KRVM 91.9 Fm. I feel very fortunate to be able to bring this music to my listeners. If you would like to help support KRVM, Please check out our web site at krvm.org.
