Bluegrass Cafe Playlist 3/25/2007 with Guest DJ William Trickett

Sunday was our first Bluegrass Cafe following two Sundays of WHUS Radiothon. Bluegrass Cafe listeners - YOU! - came through with wonderful support and helped us make our goal. Thank you very much. Bluegrass is alive and well in Southern New England!

We had Guest DJ, William Trickett, programming the second hour of the show with a little help from brother Benjamin. William's selections were well-received as evidenced by your phone calls. William's selections are indicated in Bold Red below. (William is the banjo player to the far right of Greg Cahill of Special Consensus in the first photo. Benjamin is the guitar player on the far left next to Justin Carbone in the second photo.)

The Kruger Brothers and Cherryholmes played UCONN's Jorgensen Center the previous Friday and Saturday, so we played several tunes from both.

Also, Marti and I had just returned from a week in North Carolina where we visited Mount Airy -- not only a music Mecca, but the home of Andy Griffith. It is also home to the Easter Brothers -- a legendary Bluegrass Gospel group -- so we played a couple of songs from their most recent recordings.

Thanks for listening.

Jim
