"Bluegrass Cafe" Playlist - 10/30/2011 - Halloween

Hi Folks.

Eddie & Martha Adcock with Tom Gray
We've seen some rough times, but not too many like this past week.  The Saturday afternoon before this show a huge swath of Connecticut and Massachusetts was blanketed with a wet, heavy snow that downed trees and power lines across New England.  Fortunately the UCONN campus was spared the loss of electricity and WHUS and the Bluegrass Cafe soldiered on through the hardship. Many listeners were tuning in on car radios or portables.  As many discovered, radio was one of the few windows on the outside world during the extensive power outages. My house was without power for 6-1/2 nights -- it was restored at 1:00am Saturday morning a week later -- and that has delayed this post.
Laurie Lewis and her tribute to Bill Monroe

The show last Sunday was the day before Halloween, so I dedicated the first hour to songs about murders and spooky ghosts, topics which abound in bluegrass music.

The show was shortened by an hour for a UCONN soccer game, so the final hour was mostly new music and our traditional gospel set.

Notable new albums appearing on this show were from Eddie & Martha Adcock with Tom Gray, Laurie Lewis, NewTown, Mickey Harris, and Missy Werner Band.

Amy will be at the helm of Bluegrass Cafe next Sunday, so be sure to tune in.
