"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 5/30/2010

On Sunday, we welcomed longtime CT BG supporter, Clyde Proch, back to the WHUS airwaves as he was our Guest DJ for an hour's worth of great programming. This was not Clyde's first time behind the mic at WHUS, as he also did a Guest DJ slot in May 2008 (that visit pictured here). In addition to being a great supporter of BG music, in general, Clyde has helped us out A LOT at WHUS over the past few months. He was one of our great phone-answerers during Radiothon back in March, and earlier this month, he served as our "shuttle driver" when we needed someone to make sure both the Spinney Brothers and David Peterson wouldn't need to worry about parking at the UCONN campus on graduation weekend when we got a chance to feature them performing live at WHUS. Clyde does a whole lot of emceeing at various BG festivals throughout New England, so he spent his hour talking about a few of those festivals, and, of course, playing some great music from acts featured at each festival. Look for Clyde at a festival near you, but especially this coming weekend at Strawberry Park in Preston, the Jenny Brook Bluegrass Festival in Tunbridge, VT, the Basin Bluegrass Festival in Brandon, VT, and at the Podunk Bluegrass Festival in East Hartford. Clyde's musical choices are marked in the playlist below in red. Thanks for doing a great job, as always, Clyde!

In recent weeks, the great new BG releases have been arriving like crazy at WHUS. There's so much fine music to play, it's almost like we just don't have time to fit in everything. That can be super-frustrating, but at least we know we'll not be at a loss for programming ideas in future weeks. Some of the fine new (or newer) CDs we got to play yesterday: "Plastic Heart" from the Old Time Bluegrass Singers; banjo man Ben Greene's "Bluegrass Sideman;" a gospel CD from the Gary Waldrep Band called, "Road Leading Home;" Oregon band Jett's Creek and their recording called, "Guilty;" songwriter Mark Brinkman's CD featuring a bunch of his great tunes, "On The Brink Of A Dream;" the Kathy Kallick Band's "Between The Hollow And The High-Rise," and the second Rebel recording by Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice called, "Heartaches And Dreams." Phew! Be assured you'll be hearing plenty more from ALL of these CDs in future weeks at the "BG Cafe."

And we couldn't let Memorial Day weekend pass without playing a few tunes appropriate for the holiday. Remember, the day isn't just about picnics, parades, big sales, and family gatherings (although some of those things can be fun). Hope you've been able to take a moment this weekend to reflect on members of the Armed Forces who have given -- and continue to give -- their "last full measure" for this country. Thanks to all of them...

We hope to see you at the Strawberry Park Bluegrass Festival coming up this weekend. Look for Jim on the stage, as he'll be doing some of the emceeing.

Have a great week, and, as always, thanks for listening...
