03/21/24 – Alt Country A to Z: “J”
03/28/24 – WRIU Radiothon – Boudin Barndance edition with revised BOUDIN BARNDANCE STICKERS coming!

The usual full agenda for this evening’s Boudin Barndance radio show. We continued our monthly Alt Country A to Z feature tonight during the last hour of the show. The feature looks back at the prime period of the genre from the mid-to-late 1980s to the early aughts. Tonight’s focus was “J” artists. New releases once again filled the first hour before our weekly C&W segment. Albums and singles making their Barndance debut this evening came from Sierra Ferrell, Rosali, Kyle Kimbrell, Waxahatchee, Adrianne Lenker, Charlie Parr, Vacilando, and Julian Lage. Buttshaker of the week???? Hank Penny with “No Fuss, No Muss, No Bother.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
