Nothing special.

Happy New Year to all. The first Boudin Barndance of 2022 was a look back at favorite releases from 2021. We got through a bunch, but still have more to go which we’ll continue on next week’s program, not to mention looking at some favorite reissues. The last half of tonight’s show was the “treetop” releases for me this year. Buttshaker of the week???? We give to the Black Keys with “Going Down South.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
