May 13 – 35th anniversary show – No Biggy

A chock-full Boudin Barndance radio show on this Thursday evening. We kicked off with a mini-preview of Wilco’s upcoming Solid Sound 2022 festival happening May 27-29 at MassMoca in North Adams, MA. We also featured tracks from a new retrospective from N.H.-based alt country heroes Say ZuZu. New releases of the gospel variety from Staples Jr Singers, the late Pastor Champion, and Johnny Ray Daniels were also on the menu, as was as our usual mix including a touch of Tex-Mex. New albums and singles making their Barndance debut tonight came from Wilco (single), Old Crow Medicine Show, Caroline Spence, Say ZuZu, Johnny Ray Daniels, Pastor Champion, and Staples Jr Singers. Buttshaker of the week???? Roy Hall with a killer of tune with “Three Alley Cats.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
