From the DJ perspective, The Boudin Barndance never gets boring to do. 30 years in and tonight was a blast. Amongst the fun, two albums were in the spotlight, the vinyl reissue of the late ‘80s album Free Range Chicken by Memphis R&R oddballs The Country Rockers and the return of Tommy Stinson’s Bash & Pop band. Lots of albums receiving their first Barndance spin on this evening’s show including new and recent ones from Travis Linville, Anna Fermin’s Trigger Gospel, Roger Street Friedman, David Luning, The Wolcotts, Austin Hanks, Sallie Ford, Angie & the Deserters, The Country Rockers, Bash & Pop, Dead Man Winter, Chandler Travis Philharmonic, and CeCe Winans. Oh yeah, we also remembered the day the music died, Feb. 3, 1959, near show’s end. Buttshaker of the week???? It has to be The Country Rockers with “Rockin’ Daddy.” Now let’s all grab a cold one, or two, and get to the goods….
