Watch the Boudin origin story circa-1988 from Eunice, LA:


It’s fundraiser week at WRIU and tonight was The Boudin Barndance edition. Despite the sorry state of our tower, support was pretty overwhelming this evening which tells me that the Barndance audience has followed us to the stream, so to speak, and dig what we’re dishing out week after week. First off, big thanks to Liz and Paul for manning the phones the entire evening (and the calls never slowed down!). Thanks to Flora and the Green River Festival for donation weekend passes to the Green River Festival happening June 23-25. And thank you to and Rich Mahan for the vinyl giveaway. We thank all who contributed! If you missed out and would like to donate, you can do so at and click on the Radiothon link. I would request that if you are making a donation via the online route that you specify your support for The Boudin Barndance in the “Additional Comments” section of the form. Whereas we deviated from our usual format tonight, we did have a few first-time spins tonight to new singles and/or albums from Bella White, Esther Rose, and Rachel Baiman. Buttshaker of the week????
