I first of all want to thank all of the listeners who contributed to KRVM during our recent pledge drive. You, truly are the people who keep this great community resource playing the music we all love to hear. Thank You!!!
Last week I ended my show playing a portion of Kind of Bird due to the fact that the song is 18 minuets long and I only had five left in the show. So, this week, after hearing it performed live last Thursday evening, I decided to start my show with it and let the whole track play. Something that is only found on listener supported radio like KRVM.
Doug Seegers performed in Portland last night after my radio show so I was featuring several tracks from his album Going Down To The River. After hearing him live I must say that he is the closest performer to sound like Hank Williams that I have ever seen. It was an enjoyable evening of country music performed as it should be. Barbara Lamb was excellent on the fiddle with just the right accent to Doug's guitar and voice, giving every song the right amount of swing.
