"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 6/28/2009

Sunday's show featured a good bit of music from the great song stylist, Bill Harrell, who died on June 24th following a stroke earlier in the month. While Bill Harrell's singing style was never really in the "high lonesome" Bill Monroe category of BG music, he certainly had a very long career working with both Don Reno and with his own band, the Virginians, for many years. To pay a small tribute to this very identifiable BG voice, we played several tunes featuring Bill Harrell on Sunday, and will, I'm sure, continue to play his music in future weeks and months of the BG Cafe.

A special guest DJ -- Clyde Proch -- made a return trip behind the microphones at WHUS on Sunday afternoon, too. Clyde is a "regular" on the New England BG circuit, and each year, he attends many, many festivals and shows throughout the region. You may recall that one of the "premiums" we offered for listeners during Radiothon in March was a chance to DJ the show for an hour. Clyde did a fabulous job with this in 2008, as well as this year, so thanks again to him for being a tremendous supporter of the BG in the northeast (and, of course, for being a great listener of the BG Cafe). Clyde's selections are noted in the playlist below in RED.

We left a little bit of time to throw in a tiny bit of new music from great CDs by Dede Wyland ("Keep The Light On" from Patuxent Music), Tim Graves & Cherokee ("Prodigal Son" from C&L Entertainment), and a self-released project from North Carolina's Tommy Edwards ("Heartbroke And Lonesome"). We look forward to hearing more from each of these recordings, as well as tunes from a couple more new CDs we just didn't have time to play on Sunday.

For a bit of summer fun, we gave away a couple of CDs yesterday to two listeners, and we continued our Grey Fox giveaway (one pass for one day each week between now and July 12th). Thanks again to the great Grey Fox promoters for letting us give away passes. If you haven't won a pass or CD yet, don't despair -- Jim will have more giveaways for you next week.

Be sure to tune in to Jim & Marti next Sunday, 7/5. I'm certain that they'll have a great selection of Independence Day-related tunes, and, of course, lots more of the best in BG.

Have a nice 4th!
