Well it was the first Boudin Barndance after our Radiothon fundraiser week and it always is a sigh of relief to get back to a regular night. If you missed our Radiothon last week and would still like to contribute to WRIU, you can do so at our web site 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. As for tonight, other than a remembrance of Patsy Cline, Cowboy copas, and Hawkshaw Hawkins on the anniversary this week of their perishing in a fatal plane crash, it was the usual business on the Barndance. Lots of albums and singles getting first-time spins tonight including stuff from Iris DeMent, Rachel Baiman, Andrew Gabbard, Joey Kneiser (single), Margo Price (single), Rose City Band, Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Cat Clyde, Channing Wilson, Mighty Poplar, The Shootouts, and Daddy Long Legs. Buttshaker of the week???? One of my favorite New Orleans tunes, “Rich Woman” by Li’l Millet & His Creoles. Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
