Listen to this show: Pop-up listen Pop-up player!

Artist Track Comments
Big Guitars from Texas  Boomerang   Favoriting Wild twang intro. 
Alan Freeman & Frank Beal  Redwing   Favoriting Woody Guthrie turned this into "Union Maid" ("You Can't Scare Me, I'm Sticking to the Union") 
Adrian Legg  Frank the Part Time Clown   Favoriting Brit Guitarist Legg;s 1993 album-- "Mrs. Crowe's Blue Waltz"-- probably has nothing to do with FMU DJ Tom. 
Lloyd Green  The Cave   Favoriting Nashville in 1966/67 couldn't deal with this styish guitar player, say the liner note to "The Little Darlin' Sound of Lloyd Green" (Koch, 2004). He also played on the Byrds' great "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" album. 
Michael Bloomfield  I Am A Pilgrim   Favoriting from "If You Love these Blues, Play 'Em as you Please" (Kicking Mule, 2004) 
June Gardner  Tennessee Waltz   Favoriting Sweet country classic funked up in New Orleans; Gardner was Sam Cooke's drummer. 
Dwight Yoakum  Train in Vain   Favoriting "Under the Covers" is a collection of tunes, some great, some not so, that DY did in 1993. Ralph Stanley sings backup on this Clash song! 
Tommy Steele  Singing the Blues   Favoriting British rockabilly cover of great 50s tune, a hit for both Guy Mitchell and Marty Robbins. On CD of songs that influenced the Clash that MOJO Magazine put out. 
The Clash  I Fought the Law   Favoriting Written by Sonny Curtis (one of Buddy Holly's Crickets), the song was a hit in 1966 for the Bobby Fuller Four and has been covered by many. And the Clash do a pretty good job with it. 
Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros  Yalla Yalla   Favoriting Former Clash Frontman Strummer always had interesting things to day. So sad he is gone. 
Johnny Cash  I Never Picked Cotton   Favoriting This country song could have been sung anytime during JC's long career but it's from his 1996 "Unchained" album. 
John Hartford  I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow   Favoriting A bittersweet banjo tune, from the soundtrack to "Oh Brother Where Art Thou?" 
Laura Cantrell  Little BIt of You   Favoriting From Laura's "Not the Tremblin' Kind" album 
Courtney & Western  Hands Off   Favoriting A Diesel Only 45, Courtney Lee Adams and band 
Robyn Hitchcock  Creeped Out   Favoriting On his recent CD-- "Spooked" on Yep Roc-- former Soft Boy works with American country folkies Gillian Welch and David Rawlings 
Leonard Cohen  Go No More A-Roving   Favoriting New LC CD-- "Dear Heather" (Columbia, 2004) 
Wilco  Hummingbird   Favoriting Grammy-nominated, strong songs, good harmonies. 
Kenneth Threadgill  Silver Haired Daddy of Mine   Favoriting Austin legend: Yodeler, restauranteur, Janis Joplin booster. 
Wilco  Wishful Thinking   Favoriting This is a nice song-- Beatle-esque-- but it doesn't fit here. Played by mistake, it messed up the set. Apologies to Kenneth Threadgill. 
Commander Cody & his Lost Planet AIrmen  Lost in the Ozone   Favoriting Now we're talking. These guys played the Armadillo a lot, always a good time when they did. Thirty years later, some of those bandmembers ended up in some interesting (musical) places. 
Butch Hancock with Jimmie Gilmore  Bluebird   Favoriting These guys moved to Austin, from Lubbock, in the early 70s and made a huge impact. This tune is from "Own & Own"-- a great Demon Records collection of Butch tunes. 
Greezy Wheels  Country Music and Friends   Favoriting Another Austin hippie band, Armadillo regulars. In 1976, London Records put out an album of their stuff. 
Greezy Wheels  Heartburn (I'm a Menace)   Favoriting Fiddler Mary Egan was the band standout. 
Joe Ely  Oh Boy   Favoriting Lubbock boys, Joey does Buddy 
Mark Brine  New Blue Yodel   Favoriting NY singer-songwriter moved to Nashville after this Diesel Only 45 came out. What ever happened to him? 
Kenneth Threadgill  Coming Back to You My Texas   Favoriting This is the tune that Kenneth did in Willie Nelson's "Honeysuckle Rose" movie 
Yoon Il-Lo  Guitar Boogie   Favoriting Korean take on C&W tune 
Ernest Tubb & George Jones  Half a Mind   Favoriting The first time at the wrong speed; better the second time. Roger Miller wrote this tune, by the way. 
Little Jimmie Dickens  Take Me As I Am (Or Let Me Go)   Favoriting Written by Boudleaux Bryant, recorded in 1954. 
Ramblin' Jack Elliot  Intro/T for Texas   Favoriting A 1957 live performance at Isle of Wight: "The Lost Topic Tapes" on Hightone 
Everly Brothers  So Sad to Watch Good Love Go Bad   Favoriting 1960 hit written by brother Don. 
Everly Brothers  Walk Right Back   Favoriting Another song written by Buddy Holly bandmate Sonny Curtis of the Crickets-- who wrote "I Fought the Law" played earlier. 
Old & In the Way  Land of the Navajo   Favoriting Peter Rowan wrote this song and plays here with Jerry Garcia, David Grisman and others on a rousing bluegrassy album from 1975/ 
Frankie Laine  Moonlight Gambler   Favoriting 50s pop singer-- one of the biggest in his day-- had a Western flair. Still alive in his 90s. Bob Hilliard, who wrote this song, died in 1971; not recently at all. 
Louise Massey & the Westerners  My Adobe Hacienda   Favoriting On Rounder Record's 1997 compilation: "Don't Fence Me In: Western Music's Early Golden Era". The title tune (sung by Roy Rogers) written by that great cowboy songwriter Cole Porter. 
Dean Martin/Rick Nelson  My Rifle, My Pony and Me   Favoriting Corny Hollywood, with John Wayne intro 
Ennio Morricone  Una Pistola Per Ringo   Favoriting Cowboys from Italy! 
Juan Gaytan y Frank Cantu  El Contrabandista   Favoriting Outlaws in 1934. Corridos are those great topical Mexican story songs-- often about controversial subjects. Rounder just did an entire CD of corridos about drugs: "The Roots of the Narcocorrido" includes tunes from the 1800s! 
Freddy Fender  Bailando El Rock & Roll   Favoriting Freddy knew how to rock back then; had piles of Tex Mex hits like this. Too bad the CD skipped. 
Freddy Fender  Tell It Like It Is   Favoriting A more soulful song, his take on Aaron Neville. Freddy spent some "time" in the New Orleans area, at Angola Prison on a pot charge. Huey Meaux, the Crazy Cajun, produced some of his biggest hits. 
Freddy Fender  Corrina Corrina   Favoriting Not rock at all but a cool Tex Mex version of a great old song from the guy born as Baldemar Huerta. 
Nashville Bluegrass Band  Garfield's Blackberry Blossom   Favoriting From "Twenty Year Blues" (Sugar Hill, 2004) 
International Submarine Band  Knee Deep in the Blues   Favoriting Mediocre music but a great vocal from a young Gram Parsons in 1967. On Sundazed. 
Flying Burrito Brothers  Christine's Tune (Devil in Disguise)   Favoriting Gram cooks, with a great band. This tune first appeared on "Gilded Palace of Sin" 
Asylum Street Spankers  Digga Digga Do   Favoriting Contemporary playful Austin band; song cuts off abruptly. 
LA Brown  No Hootenanny Tonight   Favoriting From "Just Shuckin' Around 1953-1963 Wild & Crazy LA R&B" on Panic Records 
The Treniers  Bald Head   Favoriting Raunchy R&B brothers cover Professor Longhair on the "Hoss Allen Sessions" 
Professor Longhair  Tipitina   Favoriting Fess tinkles those New Orleans keys-- no one does it better than him. 
Professor Longhair  Mess Around   Favoriting This one rocks too. I saw this guy play at the Village Gate in the late 70s, just a few years before he died. 
Ernie Hawkins  Lightnin's Hideaway   Favoriting A Freddy King number, from "Mean Little Poodle" on Say Mo' Music.
