"Bluegrass Cafe" Play List 9/17/06

We survived another sports preemption with an hour and 44 minutes to bring you not only the best in Bluegrass Music, but also an interview with "Uncle" Phil Leadbetter, the current IBMA Dobro Player of the Year and founding member of the band Wildfire. Wildfire will be headlining Big Sunday Bluegrass at the East Hartford Community Cultural Center 8 October 2006, so we were able to get a first-hand look at the band from one of its founding members. Phil was a pleasure to interview.

Musically, we played a good bit from Phil's two solo CDs and Wildfire's three CDs, and there was a lot of good music to choose from! We also played several other new releases from folks like The Grascals (that George Jones track was something!), and a couple of tracks from Dale Ann Bradley's new CD. The station doesn't have it yet, so that was the copy I got from Dale Ann herself at Podunk you heard! This same CD had its world premiere on Bluegrass Cafe 6 August, so keep it on WHUS for more of these exclusives.

The WHUS fall schedule will be announced Monday, 9/18/06, so check back here around Tuesday to confirm our program day/time.
