Routes and Branches Play List 03/28/09

I was inspired this week by a new tribute album of Doug Sahm classics "Keep Your Soul" done by artists and friends who he influenced over the years. From his early years with the Sir Douglas Quintet to his later years with the Texas Tornados, Doug Sahm was inventing and reinventing what we now call Americana. I'm looking forward to listening to and playing more of this wonderful tribute album for my listeners.
The rest of the show was a mix of some of my favorites from my past year on the air with KRVM. This is the first weekend of our Spring pledge drive so if you listen and like the music I play, please show your support by making your financial contribution to KRVM right now at and don't forget to mention that you like Routes and Branches. It is listeners like you that help keep KRVM on the air.
