"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 1/27/2013

On this last Sunday of January, we started the show a bit later than usual after the conclusion of a UCONN Men's Basketball win over Rutgers University.  The temperature here in eastern Connecticut has barely reached 32 degrees this past week so it seemed quite logical to play songs of a similarly "cold," "icy," or "frozen" nature to start the show.  

New music is generally a pretty big part of our show, and this week was no exception.  In addition to playing a couple of tunes from a brand-spanking new CD by Connecticut Bluegrass band, Grass Routes ("Bailey's Deal"), we also included music from Bob Amos, American Drive, the Blue Canyon Boys, Dave Adkins & Republik Steele, the Stonemans, the Gentlemen of Blue Grass, Darin & Brooke Aldridge, Richard Bennett, Nu-Blu, and Danny Paisley & the Southern Grass.  

Billy Joe Foster was the bass player with
Country Gazette in this 1986 photo.
In addition, we included a couple of songs associated with Billy Joe Foster -- the multi-instrumentalist from Oklahoma who died January 23rd at the age of 51.  Billy Joe Foster was a fine songwriter, and a member of such bands as Special Edition (with Joe Diffie), the Country Gazette, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, and, for a time, Bill Monroe & His Blue Grass Boys

A housekeeping note or two:  WHUS has recently changed its online stream, and so, our Engineer advises that folks who have bookmarked the old WHUS webstream might have had difficulty listening online for the last couple of weeks.  The advice is to listen to the stream via the WHUS homepage (  Also, it should be noted that our Bluegrass Cafe Facebook page is always in need of new folks to click on "like."  We post playlists there, as well as other information on shows, events, fill-ins, and other Bluegrass tidbits which might appeal to folks who "like" the page.  If you're on Facebook, but haven't yet "liked" us, you're more than welcome to do so:  to get there, visit  Thanks!

Be sure to join Jim next Sunday for another three hours of the best in Bluegrass.  He'll be looking for you...

Have a good week!
