02/16/2023: No Barndance due to URI basketball broadcast
02/26 – 03/05: WRIU Radiothon Fundraiser – call 888-303-9748 during the March 2 edition of The Boudin Barndance

Back after a week off due to basketball broadcast preemption. In addition to our usual new stuff, C&W set, and various odds & ends, we did a remembrance of New Orleans piano-playing great Huey “Piano” Smith who passed back on Feb 13. We closed with a bunch of stuff from Smith & The Clowns. A reminder that our annual WRIU Radiothon Fundraiser happens next weeks running from Feb 26 – March 5. We’ll be asking for your financial support in what has been a rather difficult time for WRIU given our tower situation. Albums and singles making their Barndance debut tonight came from The Tender Things (big thumbs up!), Willie Nelson (single), Jaimee Harris, Yo La Tengo, The Burnt Pines, and Erik Vincent Huey. Buttshaker of the week???? Of course Huey “Piano” Smith with “Don’t You Just Know It.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
