Sounds of the Season and Birthdays-in-Blue for a trio of Country Music Greats: The ‘Father of Country Music’ JIMMIERODGERS—The Singing Brakeman; Country Songwriter HARLANHOWARD; and Two Time Governor of Louisiana JIMMIEDAVIS of ‘You Are My Sunshine’ Fame. Other Birthdays include OTISREDDING and DEEDEESHARP, blues Crooner CHARLESBROWN, Blues Shouter ROYBROWN, and that ‘Cow Cow Boogie Girl’ ELLAMAEMORSE.
A good mix of music this morning. Just like the show’s name. Just short of a dozen new releases were sampled, some French language tracks, some lesser known songs by big stars like Etta James (The Pick Up) and Jerry Butler and some personal favorites by Joe Simon (Chokin Kind), Willie Nelson (Poncho Lefty) and Gwen McRae (Rockin Chair) and the saddest Curtis Mayfield song I know (Eddie, You Should Know Better).

The Boulder Acoustic Society track was by request, thanks for turning me on to this one.
