Nothing special.

We put the wraps on our look back at some favorite new recordings and reissues from 2021 on this evening’s Boudin Barndance program. (There are still a few scragglers left that we’ll try to work into next week’s show.) We also remembered Rhode Island folk music mainstay and R.I. Music Hall of Fame member Jon Campbell who passed away over the weekend, as well as Ronnie Spector who we lost yesterday. Buttshaker of the week???? Los Lobos from its fine 2021 album Native Sons with a cover of Thee Midnighters’ “Love Special Delivery.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
