"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 12/29/2019

On this last Sunday of 2019, we had two main objectives for our Bluegrass Cafe:  1.) play several songs that were released in 2019; 2.) remember the one-and-only Hank Williams, who died 67 years ago on New Year's Day.  We were able to reach both of these goals, plus add in a few more songs, so all in all, it seemed like a pretty okay show to me!  


While we didn't get to share music from every single recording we received in 2019, we did share 28 songs from 27 recordings.  Among the performers who released CDs in 2019:  the Seldom Scene, Blue Highway, Big Country Bluegrass, Larry Sparks, Volume Five, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, the Po' Ramblin' Boys, and others.  We hope to get to a few more 2019 releases during next Sunday's program.

We couldn't let the day pass without briefly remembering the legendary Hank Williams -- the Country Music Hall of Famer who died on his way to a performance on January 1, 1953.  While Hank's earthly life lasted just 29 years, he certainly was able to touch millions of lives with his original music and his life story.  The music of Hank Williams continues to be recorded by Bluegrass performers, and will doubtless continue to be recorded and enjoyed for generations to come.  

Thanks to all for listening to our program in 2019, and warm wishes to all for a wonderful 2020!

Amy O.

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 12/22/2019

On Sunday, December 22nd, we presented what we tongue-in-cheek refer to as our annual Classic Country & Bluegrass Christmas Extravaganza.  There was a very small number of non-Christmas songs shared, as well, but on the Sunday before Christmas, lots of seasonal tunes and carols were the emphasis.  While we had been told earlier by our WHUS Sports Department that there would be a UConn Women's Basketball game broadcast during most of our allotted time on December 22nd, that turned out not to be true, and we shared a full three-hour broadcast.

Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas, and we'll hope to have you join us on the WHUS airwaves for our last 2019 broadcast on December 29th, 4-7PM.

Thanks for listening!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 12/15/2019

Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe was the first in several weeks that was a full three hours in length.  We are in a streak of shortened shows due to UConn Basketball broadcasts and weather-related show cancellations, and that doesn't seem to be over for a while longer, yet.  Still, we enjoyed our full three-hour broadcast today, and hope you did, as well.  


We began the broadcast with several songs either written about, gathered by, or performed by Alvin Pleasant Carter -- the lone male in the original trio known as the Carter FamilyA.P. Carter was born on this date -- December 15th -- in 1891.  

As Christmas is just ten days away -- and our program is scheduled to be preempted by yet another Women's Basketball broadcast next Sunday afternoon -- we included several Bluegrass Christmas selections in our playlist today.  

And, of course, there was a bit of newer Bluegrass, too, with selections from the Chuck Wagon Gang, the Po' Ramblin' Boys, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Jason Barie, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, and brand-new-for-this-week music from the South Carolina Broadcasters.

Hope you were able to tune in today!  Please consider joining me for the short hour next Sunday -- sometime around 6PM.  

Enjoy the week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 12/8/2019 (abbreviated)

Although the calendar is telling us it isn't even Winter quite yet, we missed our December 1st broadcast completely, as there was a snow/sleet/freezing rain event in northeastern Connecticut, and it didn't make sense to drive to WHUS to broadcast our show.  As a result, there was no Bluegrass Cafe...obviously.  :)

This December 8th show was an abbreviated one, as UConn Basketball season has begun for both the Men's and Women's teams.  Our Bluegrass show lasted around 75 minutes (airing from approximately 5:45-7PM), so here is the short playlist:

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 11/24/2019

During Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe, the emphasis was on saying THANKS at the start of our Thanksgiving Week.  We shared songs about giving thanks, and in the gospel set, there were lots of songs about pilgrims.  Hope you were able to join us!

This week, we also played music from three of the five CDs recently nominated for the 2020 Best Bluegrass Album Grammy award, as well as several songs performed by Bluegrass 45:  a band that featured Sab Watanabe on banjo.  Sab, the winner of a 2019 International Bluegrass Music Association Distinguished Achievement Award for his long-running Japanese language publication, Muleskinner, was the Bluegrass 45's banjo picker, and is featured prominently on their debut album from 1971.  We learned this week that Sab died on November 21st at the age of 69.  

There wasn't a whole lot of brand-new Bluegrass to share, but we did include music from a few CDs that were released in 2019, including selections by the Band Of Ruhks, Blue Moon Rising, Rick Faris, Jason Barie, Larry Sparks, Michael Cleveland, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, and the Steep Canyon Rangers.

Hope you enjoyed the show, and best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 11/17/2019

Happy Birthday, Tom Adams!
As there was a UConn Basketball broadcast on our WHUS airwaves on this November Sunday, the start of today's Bluegrass CafĂ© didn't happen until around 5:15PM.  Still, in our remaining 1 3/4 hours, we tried to include a good mix of newer songs with classic tunes, plus a quick birthday tribute to banjo boy, Tom Adams.  Hope you were able to join us!  If not, we will definitely look for you next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM.

Enjoy the week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 11/10/2019

Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe featured nearly an hour's worth of songs in celebration and remembrance of Veterans Day.  We also remembered the late Willard Cox, patriarch of the Grammy Award-winning Cox Family.  Hope you were able to join us.

Our broadcast next Sunday afternoon will be shortened by one hour, as the UConn Basketball season is heating up -- to that end, we hope to begin the show around 5PM.  

Have a fine week.

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 11/3/2019

Ask at your local library for this
very fine autobiography of Whisperin' Bill
Did you remember to Fall Back?  Hope so!  There isn't a whole lot to say about Sunday's show, except that we sure did try to stuff in a whole lot of wonderful music.  There was a belated birthday tribute to Country Music Hall of Fame songwriter, Bill Anderson (born November 1, 1937), as well as a whole set of New England Bluegrass, a few new songs, a couple of Bluegrass birthdays, and lots of releases from 2019, too.  Hope you were able to join us, but if not...read on.

We'll be looking for you next Sunday, 4-7PM.

Have a good week!

Amy O.

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 10/27/2019

On the Sunday before Halloween, you know that we loaded our Bluegrass Cafe program with lots of ghostly, spooky Bluegrass tunes.  In addition, we paid tribute to several birthday celebrants, and even shared a little bit of new music, too.  Hope you were able to join us!
Scary song deserves a scary album cover.

Halloween is just four days away, and there are loads of spooky-sounding Bluegrass tunes that are especially appropriate to hear this time of year.  We included eighteen of these songs in Sunday's show, and could have played others.  Happy Halloween!

A couple of favorite Bluegrass performers celebrate birthdays this week, and so, we shared music from those folks, as well, including songs from the late Fred Pike (born 10/27/1932), Joe Mullins (born 10/27/1965), Martha Adcock (born 10/29/1949), and Bluegrass Hall of Famer Sonny Osborne (born 10/29/1937).
Expect new music from the Junior Sisk Band in 2020

There was still a little bit of time to share brand new music, too.  This time, that brand-new included songs from the Junior Sisk Band, Darin & Brooke Aldridge, and Steve Gulley & New Pinnacle.  

Have a great week!

Amy O.
