Roots Hoot House Concerts ARE ON HOLD:

A Boudin Barndance radio show on Christmas Eve? Why the heck not?! I was not going anywhere for Xmas this year which meant I could hold down my weekly slot playing a variety of holiday tunes on the air this Thursday evening. It was anything-goes and I was joined by my sweety in the studio keeping me company as she’s not going anywhere, either. Buttshaker of the week????
