"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 11/15/2009

After two weeks away from the radio, I got to present Sunday's BG Cafe with absolutely no sports preemptions. Hooray! While we didn't have any featured guests or lots of new music to share, we still pulled together a good number of tunes that we hope you found enjoyable...

As I had a fabulous time at the Boston Bluegrass Union-sponsored show last night featuring both Audie Blaylock & Redline and Darren Beachley & Legends Of The Potomac, naturally, I just had to include music from them. While Darren's CD with his new band hasn't been released yet -- we look forward to hearing it in 2010 -- we still heard from him with his most recent band, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. Audie's self-titled recording from Rural Rhythm has been out for about a year, and while we've played music from the CD plenty of times, I tried to include a couple of tunes on Sunday's show that we hadn't played quite as much. Both bands were fabulous, by the way, and I would hope to see them both playing again in New England in the not-too-distant future.

There was just a tiny bit of new music to share on Sunday. Several months back, I read on the Bluegrass Blog about a "new" retro-Bluegrass band from northern California who had released a 78 RPM single. This band -- Matt & George & Their Pleasant Valley Boys -- sent their 78 to WHUS this summer, but we were unable to play it on our equipment. Eventually, we were able to transfer the 78 to CD, and we finally got a chance to play one half of the record on Sunday's show. These folks appear to take their "vintage" style pretty seriously, and the record is very enjoyable.

In addition, we played music from soon-to-be-released projects by Michael Martin Murphey and Bill Emerson & Sweet Dixie. Both of these projects are due in early 2010 and will be released on the Rural Rhythm label. We look forward to hearing them...

Jim & Marti will join you next Sunday -- I think possibly an hour earlier (barring sports preemptions, of course). Do be sure to join them!

As I won't be on the air again (with BG Cafe, anyway) until November 29th, I'll take a moment now to send best wishes to you all for a very Happy and blessed Thanksgiving!

Hi, did you (or the station) archive this show?

At this point, WHUS does not archive any of its programming. On occasion, I record portions of the show, but I didn't make any copies yesterday. Thanks for asking...
