03/28/24 – WRIU Radiothon – Boudin Barndance edition

Our first Boudin Barndance radio show of February was the usual full plate. New releases dominated the first hour of the show before moving into our weekly C&W segment. We remembered “The day the music died” in the 2nd half of the program, in addition to a “Barndance mix” of new and old stuff. New albums and singles making their Barndance debut this evening came from Charley Crockett, Tony Trischka, Andrea Maddox & The Hey Y’alls, John Leventhal, Madi Diaz, Sarah Shook & the Disarmers, Glass Hours, Oisin Leech, Norah Jones, The Sinseers, The Red Clay Strays, Vera Sola, Phosphorescent, and Mary Timony. Buttshaker of the week???? Birthday gal Ruth Brown with “Mambo Baby.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
