A full plate on the Boudin Barndance radio show on this evening. New releases filled the first hour followed by an extended version of our weekly C&W segment highlighted by salutes to the newest members of the Country Music of Fame, Jerry Lee Lewis and the late Keith Whitley. We closed with an hour of loosely-related Halloween fare that actually turned out better than originally planned. If you missed the show, check out the archive at the link above. New releases making their Barndance debut tonight came from Melissa Carper (big thumbs up!), J.D. Allen, Sarah Lee Langford & Will Stewart, Billy Strings, Sam Bush, Sweet Megg, and Miko Mark & The Resurrectors. Buttshaker of the week???? “Witch For a Night” from Sugarpie DeSanto.
