Watch the Boudin origin story circa-1988 from Eunice, LA:


A hot one in these parts, and what I hear most parts of the country, so wherever you were hopefully it was a cool space to take in this evening’s Boudin Barndance radio show. Music and lots of it tonight from new releases dominating the first hour to our weekly C&W segment to more new stuff to some live show previews and a variety of odds and ends. I sure had fun. New music making its Barndance debut tonight came from The Volebeats, Neighbor Lady, Johanna Warren, Kenny Roby, Tommy McLain (single), John Moreland, Jonah Tolchin, Bill Scorzari, and Nathan Kalish. Buttshaker of the week???? Jean Shepard grabs the prize with “Two Whoops and a Holler.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
