A full plate on this evening’s Boudin Barndance. Began with an hour of new stuff followed by our weekly C&W segment. Previewed some live shows and played some more new releases before our all-covers remembrance of Gordon Lightfoot. In celebration of Cinco de Mayo tomororw, closed out with a set of authentic Tex-Mex music most of it courtesy of Arhoolie records. New albums and singles making their debut debut on this evening’s program came from Rodney Crowell, Kassi Valazza, Bella White, Gurf Morlix, Jess Williamson, Dennis Crommett, The Wood Brothers, Dan Tyminski, Shannon McNally, Country Westerns, Josh Ritter, and Adam Klein.
