April 16th

Hey Folks,

KMSU experienced some odd (and fairly rare) technological difficulty during our Easter show. The darn show got cut off halfway through. We'll be back on the air on the 23rd with some good new music--gonna play a few songs from a fairly new Billy Joe Shaver tribute cd and a few cuts from a not so new W. Jennings tribute. I'll have some requested Phil Ochs as well.

Sorry for the problems with the Easter show...
