With JJ Cale playing in town this Sunday at a sold out show at the WOW hall to benefit the Greenhill Humane Society, I decide to make him the feature artist of today’s show.
JJ Cale is one of my favorite song writers, he has been covered by the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Widespread Panic, Yonder Mountain String Band, Chris Smither , and of course Eric Clapton along with many others. At 70 years old, Cale's new album "Roll On" is one of his best ever.
I also threw in a few brand new songs this week. Slaid Cleeves has a great new disc out and a new band from Cincinnati called One Horse sent me their debut album. I also had the new disc from local artists The Whopner County Country Allstars. I want to thank the Allstars for including me in their thank yous on the liner notes. I'm sure to bring more tracks from all of these artists to the air on upcoming shows.
Finally, I want to say a big Thank You to all of my listeners who have pledged to our Spring fundraiser. It is listeners like you who help to keep KRVM and Routes and Branches on the air.
