"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 9/25/2016

During Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe, we shared a full three hours filled with everything from classic Bluegrass to music from the latest country singer to "go Bluegrass" to a few songs in tribute to one of the Grand Ladies of the Grand Ole Opry.  Hope you were able to join us!  

Jean Shepard
 (November 21, 1933 - September 25, 2016)
Though Jean Shepard was never a "Bluegrass Singer," she was a deserving 2011 inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame, as well as a 60+ year member of the Grand Ole Opry.  Her passing this morning (September 25, 2016) inspired me to dig out a couple of tracks featuring Jean singing two of her hits, as well as a Bluegrass version of a big 1973 record for Jean Shepard, "Slippin' Away."  Click the link to read a fine memorial piece by Juli Thanki in today's Tennessean newspaper to learn more about this legendary singer.

For something different, I used the inspiration of my iPod set on "shuffle" this week to pick out a few songs to share during Sunday's radio show.  Those selections came to us from several performers, including the New Kentucky Colonels, the Feinberg Brothers, Bob Amos, the Stanley Brothers, David Peterson, the Bluegrass Patriots, and the Seldom Scene.  I may return to that method of playlist "generation" over the next few weeks.  We shall see...

A bit of newer music hit the airwaves today, too.  We shared a song from Dwight Yoakam's new "Bluegrass" recording from Rounder Records -- "Swimmin' Pools, Movie Stars..." -- as well as songs from several other 2016 records by Aaron Foster, the Spinney Brothers, the Po' Ramblin' Boys, ClayBank, Edgar Loudermilk, the Boxcars, the Gospel Plowboys, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, and the Earls Of Leicester.

Hope you all had a most excellent weekend, and we'll be looking for you again next Sunday!  

Enjoy the week!

Amy

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 9/18/2016

During last Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe, we played more than an hour's worth of songs from the Bill Monroe Songbook, as Big Mon would have celebrated his 105th birthday on September 13th.  During today's radio program, we devoted nearly twenty songs to a bona fide Country Music -- more accurately, just MUSIC -- legend, Hank Williams.  "The Lovesick Blues Boy" (so dubbed by the late Red Foley as Hank was introduced on the Grand Ole Opry in 1949) would have celebrated his 93rd birthday on September 17th.  That seems as good of a reason as any to share so much Hank music, as if an excuse is really needed.  Some music legends just completely transcend genre, and Hank Williams was certainly one of those performers.  We heard a little bit from Hank, himself, but mostly, we shared a whole bunch of Hank covers from the Bluegrass World.  

Incidentally, if you are not overly familiar with the life and legend of Hank Williams, you may wish to check out one or both of these Hank biographies:  Hank Williams:  The Biography by Colin Escott and Lovesick Blues:  The Story Of Hank Williams by Paul Hemphill.  The Escott book served as the source material for the 2016 biopic of Hank's life called "I Saw The Light" (although, like most movies, the book was 1,000% better than the movie adaptation).

We celebrated a couple of Bluegrass birthdays this week, too, including selections from the late Bill Harrell (born September 14, 1934), as well as from Kathy Kallick (born September 19, 1952) and Shawn Lane of Blue Highway (born September 21, 1971).  

Hope you enjoyed today's radio show, and that you will consider joining me once again next Sunday afternoon for another edition of our Bluegrass Cafe.

Have a good week!

Amy

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 9/11/2016

Our primary focus on Sunday afternoon was the music of the Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe (September 13, 1911 - September 9, 1996).  In addition to playing 30 songs from the Monroe Songbook, we also opened the show opened with five of the many songs which have been written in tribute to Bill Monroe and his music.  It would be interesting to make a list of the many tribute songs that have been written about Monroe in the twenty years since his death, but that's another project for another day.

Bill Monroe wasn't the only birthday celebrant being honored this week.  We remembered two other performers who have September birthdays:  Paul Adkins (September 9, 1952) and Lou Reid (September 13, 1955).  

Hope you enjoyed your lovely September Sunday, and we'll be looking for you again our Bluegrass Cafe next week at 4PM.

Have a good week!

Amy

Playlist - 9/4/2016

Hi Folks.

I'm taking more of a backseat role on Bluegrass Cafe to provide more time for other things I've overlooked for over a decade while doing the show.  While I am still fully engaged with Red Rooster Party, Amy is prime on BG Cafe and I'll occasionally do fill-ins. The Labor Day weekend was one of those occasions.

It's been a while since I played Jim Eanes on the show, so I made an effort to correct that oversight on this show by playing some Jim Eanes vinyl.  Many of the Jim Eanes recordings I played throughout the show were from my own vinyl and CD collection.  

I also kicked off the show with Vic Jordan's most famous instrumental ("Pick Away") from the original vinyl LP, and played a rare early instrumental from Don Parmley.  We lost both of those great banjo pickers in the past month.

Check out the playlist below, and be sure to tune in Sunday 2-7pm ET when Amy will make the banjos and fiddles ring.  You can join me for Red Rooster Party two hours prior to that when sports hasn't knocked us off.

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 8/28/2016

Sunday was another move-in day at the University of Connecticut, and so, the quiet and peace of the campus during the Summer is over.  Oh well.  Even though it was more of a challenge than normal to get into the station, we still played a whole bunch of great music.  Hope you agree!

Happy Birthday, J.D. Crowe!
We had a couple of birthdays to celebrate during Sunday's program, and how better to do that than by sharing their music?  Among the birthday celebrants were two Bluegrass Hall of Famers:  the late Carter Stanley (born August 27, 1925), as well as J.D Crowe (born August 27, 1937).  In addition, we included one song from Jeannette Williams, who celebrates her birthday on August 28th.  

New music played a good part in Sunday's show, too.  We included music from really new recordings by Blue Highway, the Price Sisters, and Adam Steffey, as well as newer music from the Earls Of Leicester, Edgar Loudermilk, Audie Blaylock & Redline, Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice, Mickey Galyean & Cullen's Bridge, Travers Chandler, and Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver.  

Sunday also seemed like a good day to feature a bunch of music from the always-enjoyable Country Gentlemen.  I'll be honest:  the Country Gents were one of the most often-played bands around my house as I was growing up, so their music ranks very high on my "favorites" list.  Charlie Waller's warm and rich voice is always pleasing to my ear, no matter which grouping of Country Gentlemen I happen to be listening to at any particular moment.  Thanks to YouTube, though, and viewing several clips from a reunion performance by this CG configuration, I mostly focused on the "Award Winning Country Gentlemen" of the early 1970s today (Charlie Waller with Doyle Lawson, Bill Emerson, and Bill Yates).  Hope you enjoyed their music...'cause you'll keep on hearing it at our Bluegrass Cafe!  



Have a great week...and be sure to join Jim for another three hours of Bluegrass Cafe next Sunday afternoon, won't you?

Hi Folks.


I brought in a good bit of vinyl for this show.

Featured was four tracks from Joe Val's first Rounder album (Rounder 0003) that featured pioneering New England banjo picker Bob French who had died the day before.

Also, I played a couple of tracks from the just-released Kroppdusters CD that was Mike Kropp's final project before he passed.

Hope you enjoyed.

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 8/14/2016

Sunday afternoon's Bluegrass Cafe was a lot of fun -- or, shall I say that it definitely was fun for me, and hopefully, was enjoyed by our listeners, too!  

Two of Saturday's fine -- and hot -- Podunk performers:
Joe Mullins & Junior Sisk.
We began the show with several songs from a few Podunk performers, including the South Carolina Broadcasters, Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice, Sideline, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, and Saturday night's headliners, the Del McCoury Band.  Big congratulations to the Podunk organizers and volunteers for such a fabulous festival held under some pretty hot and humid conditions.  

Edgar Loudermilk
We also had a telephone visit on Sunday afternoon with the fine singer, songwriter, and now, band leader, Edgar Loudermilk.  Our main topic of conversation was Edgar's very good solo recording on Pinecastle Records which was released in early July:  "Georgia Maple."  Thanks to him for visiting with us!

There was a tiny bit of newer music to be heard on Sunday, too.  This time, the newer selections came from the aforementioned Edgar Loudermilk, Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice, and Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, as well as Mickey Galyean & Cullen's Bridge, Audie Blaylock & Redline, the Po' Ramblin' Boys, Travers Chandler, David Parmley & Cardinal Tradition, the Boxcars, the Spinney Brothers, and the Earls Of Leicester.

Hope you're staying cool during this steamy August.  Be sure to join Jim for some cool Bluegrass next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM!

Amy
