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

Dec. 22 – No show: Barndance preempted by URI basketball game
Dec. 29 or Jan 5 – Favorites of 2022 show

The first Boudin Barndance radio show of December was a mostly playing-the-field affair including deviating from our usual first hour of new releases. We spotlighted the recently released compilation “The Skippy White Story: Boston Soul 1961-67” from Yep Roc Records during the 2nd half of the show. It focuses on the legendary Boston record store owner’s love of soul music and is a good one. Buttshaker of the week???? From the Skippy White collection, the Earl Lett Quartet with “Do the Thing.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
