Back in the Barndance saddle this week after a rare week off. We remembered Scott Kempner of The Del Lords and The Dictators fame who passed last week. We also presented the latest installment of our Alt Country A to Z feature during the final hour of the show which looks back at the prime period of the genre from the mid-to-late 1980s to the early aughts. Tonight’s focus was “G” artists. New releases filled our first hour followed by our weekly C&W segment. New albums and singles making their Barndance debut tonight came from Sarah Jarosz, Todd Snider, Kurt Vile, Jobi Riccio, and J. Mascis. Buttshaker of the week???? “Still a Few More Honky Tonks” from Chris Gaffney & The Cold Hard Facts. Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
