January 28th

Hey All,

This week's show was a repeat from September 2007--a show for which I lost the playlist. We played a lot of stuff from the Peter Case tribute cd--I know that. I also mentioned the very good documentary film called Libby Montana.

I'll be back next week with a new show...

Hi All,

On last week's show I mentioned I'd post an interview with Richard Russo--I'm really liking his new book River of Sighs and am a pretty darn big fan of everything he's done. He writes about the same kind of characters who populate the songs played on this program.

3) Guy Clark; Baby Took a Limo to Memphis; Dublin Blues
