Aug 17: Talkin’ Rhythm & Roots 2023 with Chuck Wentworth

We continued our relatively new periodic feature called “Alt Country: A to Z” which focuses on the prime period of the genre from the late 1980s into the early aughts. I lived and DJ-ed through it all, so my library is pretty extensive. We are presenting it on a somewhat periodic basis and continued it this week with “C” artists devoting the almost the entire 2nd half of the program to it. Prior to that, it was primarily new stuff the first hour before moving to our C&W segment followed by a quick feature on the new album from The Baseball Project called Grand Salami Time before diving into Alt Country: A to Z. Albums and singles Ray Condo & The Ricochets with “Hadicillin Boogie.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
