"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 3/7/2010

Sunday was one busy day for the WHUS Sports Department. In the afternoon, there were preemptions of our regular WHUS programming for both UCONN Women's Hockey, as well as UCONN Women's Basketball Big East tournament action. Craziness! Beginning about 4:30, though, we got on the air with the BG Cafe. Hope you were able to join us for a bit...

While we didn't include a whole lot of brand new music during this week's show, we were able to play what I think is the title tune from a forthcoming CD on Mountain Roads Recordings by Big Country Bluegrass --"The Boys In Hats And Ties" seems to be another tribute tune to Lester & Earl from the pen of Tom T. and Miss Dixie Hall, as well as Don Rigsby. We look forward to hearing the whole new CD from Big Country BG. The great duo of Reno & Smiley also have a "new" recording out on Rural Rhythm called "Bluegrass 1963." This CD contains a lot of the audio tracks from a TV show/pilot that Don & Red did for Kroger in 1963, and even includes a duet or two with the Stanley Brothers. Great stuff!

For the next two Sundays, we'll be asking for your support during our Radiothon campaign. As usual, there will be lots of great items we can offer to you as "thank you gifts" for your support of WHUS (and, of course, BG Cafe). In addition to new TV shirts offered by WHUS (with a choice of 4 different colors, I believe), we have accumulated over 100 great BG CDs to offer you as premiums. I'll be posting a list of those on this blog later in the week. Please note that the BG Cafe will begin on March 14th at 2PM, as Joe the Student DJ will still be on his Spring Break, so we'll be covering his timeslot. Please join Jim & I starting at 2PM, and we hope you'll consider making a pledge to WHUS. Thanks!

Have a great week!
