Routes and Branches Play List 11/14/09

I have been saving up some of the new music to the station for this week's show. With Our Fall pledge drive completed I can relax and talk about the new music more. I started with the New Riders Of The Purple sage because Ed finished his show with a vintage NRPS track.

This has been a great year for new Americana, Alt. Country, and Roots style music. It is going to be difficult to narrow down my favorites to fit into one 2-hour show.

Keep on, Keepin' on.
