I started this week's show with the new CD from Playing For Change called "PFC2". Although this new disc explores much more music than what I call Americana, I really appreciate what they are doing sharing music all over the globe including artists that I do play on my show like Grandpa Elliot who was also on the first PFC album.
My in-studio guest today was local musician and photographer Michael Kevin Daly. He has a new self produced album of original songs called "Boundless". Most listeners will recognize Daly's lyrical song writing from his work with the band "Sideroads" which has evolved into just a trio called "Dreamdog". Daly will be featuring songs from his new CD "Boundless" at upcoming Dreamdog shows this summer.
Since it is Memorial Day weekend I closed the show with James McMurtry's ode to the holiday.
