Routes & Branches 6/9/12

Today was the start of KRVM's Summer Pledge drive and I want to thank all of the listeners who called in to pledge their support of KRVM and especially my show Routes & Branches. I also want to thank anyone who pledged on our website. When I was talking with Ray Wylie Hubbard last week about Americana music and how to define it, He said that it was you our listeners who define what Americana is by listening to and supporting the music with your support of this station and program. Radio worth listening to is worth supporting. Everyone can be a member supporter of KRVM by going to our web site: clicking on the "Pledge Now" button.

As part of my fund drive show I pulled out a few more older and vintage tracks including John Hiat, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, and James McMurtry. Of the new cuts this week I tried to put some connections together like playing Railroad Earth followed by Bovine Social Club since Tim Carbone of RR Earth was the producer for BSC, and I followed James McMurtry with John Fullbright because McMurtry said that Fullbright is one of the most interesting songwriters he has heard recently. I also like Neil Young and Crazy Horse's new CD "Americana". I like how they have put new life into some great old tunes.
