Spring is in the air in Southeastern New England, but it’ll take more than today to melt all that’s here. The Boudin Barndance attempted to spring things up this evening and hopefully from the listener standpoint, we succeeded. Our feature this evening was a birthday salute to the soul queen of New Orleans, Irma Thomas, who celebrates her 70th birthday tomorrow. The new releases keep coming and the following made their Boudin Barndance debuts this evening: Boris McCutcheon & the Salt Licks, Matt Urmy, Riley Etheridge Jr., Wanda Jackson, Louisiana Red (reissue), G. Love, and Tennis. Buttshaker of the week???? Ben Vaughn covering “Goin’ Down That Road” from his terrific ’93 release “Mono U.S.A.” Now let’s all grab a cold one and get to the goods…
