As of tonight, it’s 32 years and two weeks of Boudin Barndance radio shows and we celebrated just as we started back in 1987 with a salute to the music of Gram Parsons featuring a set of classics near show’s end. Prior to that, the usual mix of old, new, birthdays, etc. Finished off with a few from X who are in the Northeast this weekend, original lineup and all. New albums making their Barndance debut tonight included releases from Ian Noe, TK & the Holy Know-Nothings, Massey Ferguson (no relation), and Bailen. Buttshaker of the week????
