First off, tonight was fun. The “home” editions of The Boudin Barndance radio program continue. It was an all-over-the-map mix of tunes tonight, so hopefully you caught it and dug it. Already had the show pretty much in the can.last weekend when news of Little Richard’s passing hit, so we’ll do a little more proper sendoff next week. New and recent releases making the Barndance hit parade for the first time this included albums M. Ward, Ali Holder, Rose City Band, and Chatham County Line. Buttshaker of the week???? Wild Jimmy Spruill with “Raisin’ Hell.” Now let’s all grab a cold one, or three, and get to the goods….
