Upcoming Shows

UnAbbreviated Country

Fuzzy Mic

"If you want to teach the story so it only involves one group of people, then you’re going to leave out most of the history. If you tell more or less the truth, then the story might become more complicated or have more parts — some of which may even be uncomfortable — but it will be a much more interesting story." Henrique Prince - Ebony Hillbillies

Country is a big word. 

And genre is more an artifact of marketing than it is of music.

Because of basketball (GO AGS!), this is the only UnAbbreviated Country show this month.

For Black History Month we will highlight the country music of black artists, no matter what genre the record companies labeled it. A little bit of lecture (oh no! education! ick!) hiding behind a lotta bit of music.


Plus, a guest musician in studio.

This was  what was shaken when The Beatles hit the U.S.A. shores 54 years ago. Please note there was still some surf happening at positions at 9, 17, 22 and 24. Surf reached its peek in the summer of 1963.
