"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 9/9/2012

Sixteen years ago today, the BG world lost its father, William Smith Monroe.  As you might expect, we remembered Big Mon today by starting the show off with four songs of the many that have been written in tribute to Monroe in the years since his passing.  We also played a few tunes from Bill Monroe's pen and his recording catalog throughout the show.

In addition to September 9th being the anniversary of Bill Monroe's death, we also celebrated the birthdays of both Paul Adkins (born 9/9/1952) and James King (9/9/1958), as well as those of Bill Monroe (9/13/1911) and Lou Reid (9/13/1954).  

There was plenty of music to play from releases recently received or made available to WHUS through downloads by bands like Delta Reign ("Calm Before The Storm" will be released by Mountain Fever Records), as well as the Yankee Rebels ("Flight Of The Phoenix" on their own label), the San Francisco-based Earl Brothers' fifth recording called "Outlaw Hillbilly," "Pick It Brother" from the teen-and-preteen Moore Brothers Band, and the latest from Ricky Skaggs is called "Music To My Ears."  We also had a couple of "singles" released from forthcoming projects by Nu-Blu (their all-gospel "Nail By Nail" is soon to be released on Pinecastle Records) and Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, whose "They're Playing My Song" comes out on Rebel Records on October 25th.  There was plenty of music from 2012 releases, too, by folks like the Special Consensus, Balsam Range, the Boxcars, Jeff Parker, Freeman & Williams, the Spinney Brothers, Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, Richard Bennett, Bob Amos, the Lonesome River Band, and Karl Shiflett & Big Country Show.  

Hope you enjoyed something you heard at some point on Sunday's show.  Be sure to join Jim next Sunday for another addition of Bluegrass Cafe.  Remember, too, that you're cordially invited to visit our Facebook page anytime and give it a "like," if you're so inclined.  There, you'll find information on various BG happenings in the area, and those pesky sports preemptions and things that might cause slight modifications to our programming at WHUS.  Find us on Facebook by clicking here:
