During the first hour we listened to the Lannen-Jukka String Band from Finland. The concert was recorded at the 2007 Nordic Roots Festival at the Cedar Cultural Center by Chris Dronen and edit by Dan Rein.

In the second hour we listened to an interview with Serbian guitarist, Maja Radovanlija, with live guitar tracks.

Reckless Ones were on the show with their new CD. Lots of rockabilly, from Charlie Feathers to Rosie Flores. Plus, penty of other stuff ranging from the Chicken Chokers to Eric Clapton, from Merl Sanders & Jerry Garcia to David Lindley.
