play list for five & dime show aired 7-july-2011 wmse

so good to be back.     took about a 10 day vacation to the lovely north woods here in wisconsin for some cabin-ing, canoeing, hiking, etc…….only to be derailed by mother nature.   it rained about %75 of the time, hence the brief rain theme in the show.    still nice to not be work, got some reading done (currently about halfway done with the recent alan lomax biography), and found some great records for a change….haven’t had the best of luck up there in years past, but with all the rain it made for great record hunting.


cannot wait until the end of july for the stations yearly concert event, radio summer camp.    the show i’m most excited about is saturday july 30th at the cactus club……local favorites wereworm, steve gunn (possibly the gunn-truscinski duo, not sure at this time) & william tyler.    this will be a fantastic show, and i hope that you can attend.   more news/details to folllow, i will be playing as much as possible from these artists in the coming weeks, so please tune in.


here’s the playlist……as always, if you like what you see, why not listen?   click on the link at right and check out the archives of the five & dime show in all it’s glory.    thanks to all for the kind words upon my triumphant return to the radio, i really missed the show…..going four weeks without it was strange.
