Routes & Branches 6/24/17

Local band Whopner County stopped by the KRVM studios this afternoon on their way to a CD release party at Sam Bond's Brewing. Even after loosing two members of the band several years ago, they have decided to record some songs that had been written back when they were the Whopner County Country Allstars but had never been recorded. Having dropped the Country Allstars part of the name they are looking expand their sound to other genres. It's good to see Whopner County playing back in local taverns!!!

A busy show this week.  I had The Dustbowl Revival stop by the station and play a couple of tracks from their soon to be released self-titled album. They are a high energy band mixing traditional string instruments with trombone and trumpet to create a fun original take on how their music is created. I also played so Jimmy LaFave and Allman Brothers tunes to honor the recent passing of LaFave and Greg Allman. And on top of that we started our summer membership drive this week. Thanks to all the listeners who called or went on line and pledged their support to this great community radio station that we call KRVM.
