June 4th, 2006

Hey Folks,

Before the playlist, a couple of links to things mentioned on this week's show. First, "Be Here to Love Me" the documentary about Townes Van Zandt--It's awfully good.

Also on the week's show I mentioned (and played) the music of Jason Wilber. Jason is best known as John Prine's lead guitar player, but he's putting out some real nice stuff on his own. I'll play a track or two next week as consider checking out his website. He has a nice free sampler cd and the others are certainly worth your money.

Ok...this week's playlist...

1) The Walin Jenny's; Glory Bound; Firecracker
2) Amy Speace (with Cliff Eberhart); Row Row Row; Songs for Bright Street
3) Jason Wilber; The Wooden Statuette; Live and Otherwise

4) Townes Van Zandt; For the Sake of the Song; Far Cry from Dead
5) Townes Van Zandt; The Highway Kind; The Highway Kind
6) Townes Van Zandt; Pancho and Lefty; Far Cry from Dead

7) Brigitte DeMeyer; More Than I Can Do; Something After All
8) The Flatlanders; Wheel of Fortune; Wheel of Fortune
9) Neil Young; Far From Home; Prairie Wind
10) Los Lobos; Saint Behind the Glass; Live at the Fillmore

**The first three songs of the next set were played by Todd Snider during his encore on May 26th up in the Cities

11) John Prine; Illegal Smile; Glory Days
12) Jerry Jeff Walker; Mr. Bojangles; Best of the Vanguard Years
13) Todd Snider; Enjoy Yourself; East Nashville Skyline
14) Sarah Harmer; Luther's Got the Blues; I'm a Mountain

By the way, as many of you likely know, the song "Enjoy Yourself" has quite a history.
