radio boise playlist for week of 06/04/07

'It's all Amurricana, by Gawd!'

For no particular reason that I can figure, this week's show turned out to be chock full of country twang, and nothing but.

Plenty of vintage stuff, mixed in with a bit of the more contemporary countrypolitan. I've heard Billy Kirchen call it 'Grange Rock'.

Honky-tonk howl, a trucker tune or two, a wee taste of bluegrass and rockabilly and western swing also along the trail.

And as always, of course: Any questions, comments about the music, howdies, whatever - - just click on that 'email me' link. Thanks, and I'm surely much obliged.
