02/15/24 – Alt Country A to Z: “I”
03/28/24 – WRIU Radiothon – Boudin Barndance edition

We presented the latest installment of our Alt Country A to Z feature tonight during the 2nd half of the show. The feature looks back at the prime period of the genre from the mid-to-late 1980s to the early aughts. Tonight’s focus was “H” artists and I have to say, “H” was pretty plentiful. We also put the wraps on our look at favorite releases from 2023 during the first half of the show. There was plenty of good stuff in 2023 and we couldn’t get to it all in in two weeks, hence another round tonight. Back to a normal format Boudin Barndance next week. Buttshaker of the week???? The Handsome Family with “In the Air.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
