Willie Nelson turns 90 tomorrow, so fittingly we sprinkled a bunch from the Red-Headed Stranger into tonight’s last Boudin Barndance of April, in addition to playing the field. Hope you were able to turn in, but if not the archive at link above is available for two weeks. Stuff making its debut on this evening’s show included albums and singles from Julianna Riodino (who sang in our living room a few weeks ago!), NQ Arbuckle, Roxy Gordon, and Lightnin’ Hopkins. Buttshaker of the week???? In a tight one, Daddy Long Legs with “Two Dollar Holler.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
