Rotation #200 – September 28, 2009
read: http://www.taprootradio.com
listen: http://loudcaster.com/channels/21
live: Monday nights at 9pm eastern on WCOM.

Howdy,

Woo Hoo! This week marks the 200th weekly rotation for Taproot Radio. Good God it’s been fun and I hope to do at least another 200 shows. The thing that amazes me the most is that the good music just keeps on coming. I know it’s trendy to say stuff like “all this music today sucks” and then stomp off like an old fogey. (“And get off my lawn!”). But to tell the truth, I’m always excited to see new CDs show up in the mailbox.

This week I caught up on a huge backlog of CDs and the recently adds list is way too long to go through each and every CD for ya. But I’ll point out a couple of highlights. Some notable additions recently include Mike Zito’s latest CD Pearl River, Joey Alcorn’s (aka Hank 3.0) All Alone Again, Beth McKee’s retro-soul CD That’s The Way I Am, And Scott MacLeod’s Old School. Check them out and go buy them from your local independent music store. They need your show.

And while I’m indulging in old fogey-ism, go see a live show dammit!

Dig Deep,
Calvin

John Howie Jr and The Sweethearts @ Carrboro Music Festival

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on John Howie Jr and The Sweethearts @ Carrboro Music Festival
Sep 212009
 

This past weekend was Carrboro Music Festival! It was a great event for such a small town. There must have been 15 stages or so, each featuring 5 or 6 shows during the day. I was happy to see several artists on the schedule who’ve been featured on Taproot Radio in the past, including Birds and Arrows, Mandolin Orange, and Tokyo Rosenthal.

But one of the crowd favorites every year is John Howie Jr, Former front man of The Two Dollar Pistols, he’s now got two projects, John Howie Jr and the Rosewood Bluff and John Howie Jr and the Sweethearts.

At the CMF, he was in his Sweethearts incarnation featuring Nathan Golub on pedal steel and Billie Feather on upright bass and banjo. There were several new songs on the play list, at least new to me. And there was rockabilly cover of a Charlie Feathers’ “One Hand Loose,” which was fun. He closed with one of his most popular songs, “You Ruined Everything.”
