A good night for a Boudin Barndance radio show, nice and chilly. Hopefully you were able to tune in. Chief on agenda tonight was a remembrance of powerhouse drummer Sara Romweber of Let’s Active, Snatches of Pink, and Dex Romweber Duo fame, who passed early in the week in her home state of N.C. So sad. I dug her work big time. New releases making their Barndance debut tonight included albums from Patty Griffin, Robert Forster, Bobby Long with Jack Dawson, Chatham County Line (@ Narrows this weekend), and the late Leo Bud Welch. Buttshaker of the week???? Dex Romweber Duo with “Cigarette Party.” Now let’s all grab a cold one, or two, and get to the goods….
