Happy New Year
This week marks my one year anniversary with KRVM. I feel so fortunate that I get program great Americana music on the radio every week.
This past year has introduced me to more new music than ever. It was hard to narrow down Today's show of my top 20 favorite songs from 2008. It is a mix of some long time favorites like Willie Nelson and John Hiat along with new to me artists like The Mother Truckers and the Drive By Truckers.
I am looking forward to bringing you, our listeners and supporters, another year of new and interesting Americana, Roots music and Alt. Country. If you have any suggestions for guest artists or music on Routes & Branches, just leave me a note on this site.
See you on the radio.
