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 well...do 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...
