Aug 17: Talkin’ Rhythm & Roots 2023 with Chuck Wentworth

The first Boudin Barndance of August was a mostly playing-the-field affair with new releases dominating the first hour followed by our weekly C&W segment (which included a Hank Cochran and Bobby Braddock birthday salute) and then a Barndance “mix” for the 2nd half of the program. If you listened, hopefully you enjoyed. New albums and singles making their Barndance debut tonight came from Beth Bombara and Mikaela Davis & Southern Star. Buttshaker of the week???? The late and great Syl Johnson with “Music To My Ears.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
