Big thanks to Pop Wagner:http://www.popwagner.com for joining me on the horse show edition of PWB. We heard lots of tributes to horses throughout the morning, and for the last half of the show it was all Pop as he shared many greats from his collection: Skip Gorman, Sean Blackburn, and Huun Huur Tu were some of the singing cowboys who helped us get along our little dogies this last Tuesday in August.
What did I say to you I’m losing my mind
I can’t remember what I’ve said half the time.
I’m walking a waltz between awake and asleep
I could use a good time.
— Lori Wray, Walking Tall
Lori Wray and Todd Newman were on the show — yakkin’ and makin’ music, prior to their gig this coming Thursday, August 30, at the Acadia Club. The show featured the show’s (and likely the station’s) first over-the-phone duet!
Really got into The Sandinista Project cd on 00:02:59 records (#7 and # 25 on the playlist below). This cd is a cut-for-cut cover of the famous 1980 Clash 3 disc LP Sandanista and it’s pretty good. There’s been a bunch of Clash Tribute CD’s and this one is noteworthy because the covers are reinterpreted in creative ways while still doing what good covers do – capture the spirit of the original. It rocks !
