Routes and Branches Play List 10/23/10

I want to give a big KRVM Thank You to all of our listeners who contributed to our recent radiothon. You are the listeners in "Listener Powered". We wouldn't be able to bring you shows like Routes & Branches without your support. Thank you.

After a couple of weeks off and then radiothon, my stack of new un-aired CDs was getting pretty tall. One of my favorites was the new disc from Stan Ridgway. Listening to his distinct voice took me back to my college radio days when I played his band Wall Of Voodoo and their hit tune "Mexican Radio" on my show. Ridgway's new album "Neon Mirage" has a depth of feeling that comes from a seasoned songwriter.
I also liked the new CD "Break Til You Bend" from local band The Stagger & Sway. Anyone who has been to Sam Bond's Garage will appreciate the Sway's song about the local watering hole. Produced by Ehren Ebbage "Break Til You Bend" is Stagger & Sway's first full length CD following their debut EP "Time Changes". They call it Americana with a Rock and Roll temper. I call it Our Kind of Music. The Stagger & Sway will hold their official CD release party at (where else) Sam Bond's Garage on Saturday December 11th.
