"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 8/20/2017

In short, Sunday's show featured nearly a dozen songs written by a top-notch Bluegrass songwriter, Jake Landers (born August 14, 1938), a bit of music from recent releases for 2017, and our Letter of the Week was "S," which yielded a treasure trove of music from performers as varied as the Seldom Scene to the Stanley Brothers to Sideline, just to name a few. 


Hope you were able to tune in, but if not, we'll look for you again next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM!  

Enjoy the week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 8/13/2017

Our radio program is one that generally plays only Bluegrass music, although we have been known to throw in an occasional country song rendered by a performer of classic country music (i.e. a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame).  During Sunday's show, we celebrated the August 12th birthdays of two classic country performers, we remembered the passing of a third Hall of Famer, shared a bit of Podunk music, and, of course, threw in a selection or two from some brand-new Bluegrass recordings.

Must be something special about August 12th producing
Country Music Hall of Famers
The August 12th birthdays belonged to Porter Wagoner (August 12, 1927 - October 28, 2007) and Buck Owens (August 12, 1929 - March 25, 2006).  Both of these Hall of Famers recorded many songs which have been covered in the Bluegrass World, so it's nearly impossible to even consider missing their birthdays by not sharing a whole mess of songs from their respective song catalogs.  We even included a couple of songs each from both Porter and Buck, too.  And, as an added "bonus," one song ("Cajun Fiddle") featured Buck's right hand man, Don Rich (August 15, 1941 - July 17, 1974) on the fiddle.  

We also couldn't let the week pass without sharing some music from another Hall of Famer who died this past week:  Glen Campbell (April 22, 1936 - August 8, 2017).  Not quite as many of Campbell's 1960s/1970s pop-country tunes have been covered by Bluegrass performers (that I know of, anyway), but there were a couple that made Sunday's playlist.

We included a short set of songs from some of the Friday and Saturday Podunk performers, including the Gibson Brothers, Becky Buller, David Parmley & Cardinal Tradition, and Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike.  A bit of new music was included today, too, from the likes of the Kevin Prater Band, Jerry Salley, and the Misty Rose Band.  

Have yourself a fine week, and we'll be looking for you once again next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 8/6/2017

Happy August!  Hope you've been enjoying your summer...so far!  You've still got a few weeks left to get out and enjoy the summer.  Hope you do!
M is for Big Mon

On this first Sunday of August, our Letter of the Week was "M."  That meant a whole bunch of Bill Monroe, and a whole host of other magnificent and marvelous Bluegrass performers whose first, last, or band names start with a "M," including Del McCoury, Lynn Morris, Patrick McAvinue, Joe Mullins & the Radio RamblersDwight McCall, Mountain FaithAlan Munde, Muleskinner, Charlie Moore, Charlie Monroe, and Jim & Jesse (McReynolds).  Another "M" Bluegrass Hall of Famer would have turned 90 on August 10th, so we shared a few of his songs, too:  Jimmy Martin.

My parents celebrating
anniversary #62 on August 6th

This day also happens to be the 62nd wedding anniversary of two very important people I know quite well:  my parents, Alton and Eleanor Orlomoski.  They were remembered in this playlist, too, as I shared a few songs from some of their favorite performers.


And lest we forget, the Podunk Bluegrass Festival happens this coming weekend in Hebron, CT.  We included one full set of music from a few of the fine performers coming to Connecticut.  Hope to see you at Podunk next weekend!


Have a fine week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 7/30/2017

Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe was not planned at all.  That is, I always figured on hosting the radio show today, but this week, I didn't prepare for even one second of it.  Pretty dopey, I know.  Still, every once in a while, programming on the fly can be an enjoyable method of show prep.  I didn't think the show turned out too badly -- hope you agree!

The final nominees for 2017 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards were announced this week, and we shared a few songs from several nominees, including Balsam Range, Rickey Wasson, Shawn Camp, Molly Tuttle, Michael Cleveland, the Gibson Brothers, and the Earls Of Leicester.  Congratulations to all of the nominees -- and good luck!

In addition to the IBMA Awards for 2017, there will be three inducted acts (total of four people) into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame.  This time around, we included several songs from 2017 inductee Roland White, as well as one song each from Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard and Bobby Hicks.

For new music, we played a couple of songs from the very brand-new recording from Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers:  "The Story We Tell," as well as a song from the forthcoming Rural Rhythm recording from Feller & Hill.

And we didn't forget our Letter of the Week, either.  This time around, the letter was "C."  We missed a whole bunch of "C" performers this time around, but perhaps we will have another session of "C"s on another day.  The "C" performers included acts as varied as California, J.D. Crowe, the Carter Family, Russ Carson, the Case Brothers, Michelle Canning, Cherryholmes, and, of course, the Country Gentlemen.  

Hope you have a fabulous week!  We'll see you once again next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 7/23/2017

Our primary objectives for Sunday afternoon's Bluegrass Cafe:  give away a couple of one-day passes to and chat a bit about the upcoming Podunk Bluegrass Festival and to have an on-air visit with one of the fine main stage performers, Becky Buller.  Mission accomplished.

Becky Buller is the reigning International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Female Vocalist of the Year and Fiddle Performer of the Year.  She will also be making her first trip to the Podunk Bluegrass Festival with her own very active band, the Becky Buller Band.  We enjoyed visiting with her this afternoon, and hope you will enjoy seeing her band perform at Podunk on Saturday, August 12th.  Other Podunk performers whose music was included on Sunday's show included the Gibson Brothers, Rhonda Vincent, and David Parmley & Cardinal Tradition.

For new music, we shared a couple of cuts from the fine new project on Rebel Records from Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers -- "The Story We Tell."  The gospel set included four songs from an album that is a personal favorite:  "We'll Still Sing On" by the Johnson Mountain Boys (Rounder, 1985).  

Hope you'll consider joining us once again next Sunday afternoon for another visit to our Bluegrass Cafe!

Enjoy the week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 7/16/2017

Instead of just playing random records during Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe, I thought it might be fun to pick a letter from the alphabet and try to make the majority of the music on the playlist come from performers whose first, last, or band name began with that letter.  Granted, this isn't the world's most original idea; in fact, "Sesame Street" has been "sponsoring" episodes by individual letters for years.  For this week, it seemed like the proverbial "no brainer" to focus on the letter B.  After all, B is Bluegrass, B is for Banjo, and B is even for Bill Monroe (at least by my "first or last name" rules, that is, even if "Bill" was a nickname for William Smith Monroe).  In Sunday's playlist, 30+ songs were performed by "B" performers as varied as Blue Highway, the Boys From Indiana, Big Country BluegrassJesse Brock, the Blue Sky Boys, the BoxcarsJunior BarberBalsam Range, and the Bray Brothers, just to name a few.  What letter is next?  We'll have to wait and see...

We also remembered the upcoming birthday of a wonderful Bluegrass fiddler
Bobby Hicks with musical partner, Mark Kuykendall
who will turn 84 on July 21st, but who continues to perform and make records with his most recent band.  
Bobby Hicks worked was a Blue Grass Boy on-and-off for several years in the 1950s, was an important part of Ricky Skaggs's band during his country music heyday in the 1980s and 1990s, and this month, released a second recording on Rebel Records with his latest band, Mark Kuykendall, Bobby Hicks & Asheville Bluegrass.  Happy Birthday, Bobby Hicks!  


Hope you'll consider joining me next Sunday for another edition of our Bluegrass Cafe!  On the agenda:  an on-air chat with Becky Buller who will be performing with her band at the Podunk Bluegrass Festival coming up August 10-13 in Hebron, CT.  We'll also some Podunk day passes to give away, so we'll be looking for you next Sunday...

Have a good week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 7/9/2017

Happy 88th birthday, Jesse McReynolds -- mandolin
cross-picking innovator and Bluegrass Hall of Famer!
Sunday, July 9th is the 88th birthday of bona fide Bluegrass legend -- and Bluegrass Hall of Fame member -- Jesse Lester McReynolds.  To that end, we made sure to share several songs from his songbook, although we quite easily could have filled up all three hours with Jesse McReynolds music.  Maybe next time...

In addition, there were birthdays songs for three other July birthday celebrants:  Rhonda Vincent, Richard Underwood, and Mike Barber.  

Eddie Adcock's old "new" album! 
Among the birthday songs, too, was a small amount of newer Bluegrass music -- some from a record that won't be released until later this year (from Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers), and one "new" record that was actually recorded by Bluegrass Hall of Famer Eddie Adcock in 1963.  Several other 2017 recordings were heard, too, from Matt & George & Their Pleasant Valley Boys, Ned Luberecki, the Still Pickin' Trio, Big Country Bluegrass, and Mark Kuykendall, Bobby Hicks & Asheville Bluegrass.

Hope you enjoyed the show today, and that you'll be sure to join me or Cathy Day next Sunday afternoon for another edition of our Bluegrass Cafe!

Enjoy the week!

Amy O.
