Howdy,

No new music added this week. Been on the road travelling. Will get back to it next week. Meanwhile, check out the newly published episode 7 of the Taproot Music Feed podcast! I have interviews and music from sultry singer Beth McKee, cowpunk Joe Swank, and up and coming singer/songwriter, Patrick Bloom. 
Dig Deep,
Calvin

Howdy,

After being off the air for Way Too Long, Rick Cornell returns to the airwaves on Monday, January 25th. Rick will be my co-host the Taproot Radio show from 9-10 and then he’ll launch the return of the Dirty Laundry show from 10-11. So tune into to WCOM at 9pm on Monday night.

Tokyo Rosenthal will be joining me on the Taproot Radio to play a song or two from his new CD, Ghosts. I’ve also asked him to play guest DJ for a set, so he’s bringing in some of his favorite tracks to spin on the air. I’ve also posted a video performance of his “Will You Speak About Me Then.”

For this week’s Taproot Radio Poll, Rate “Young Dreams” by Dexter Romweber. I’m loving this old school New Orleans Piano Bar sound. And Dexter Romwebericon is giving it away over at Bloodshot Records.

Last week’s Taproot Poll for Rating Your Favorite Bobby Charles songs didn’t yield too many surprises. “Walking To New Orleans,” and “The Jealous Kind” tied for favorite with ‘Why Are People Like That,” “See You Later Alligator,” and “But I Do” following close behind.

Dig Deep,
Calvin

Howdy,

On January 14th, Bobby Charles passed away. He’s one of the best songwriters you never heard of. He mostly kept a low profile and didn’t perform much, but his songs were covered by everybody and their brother. Follow the link above for his wikipedia entry. Beth McKee’s last CD, I’m That Way, was full CD of Bobby Charles covers. I interviewed her the day he died and that interview will be featured in an upcoming episode of The Taproot Music Feed podcast.

Beth was kind enough to help me pull together a Bobby Charles tribute set on iTunes. I’ll also be featuring a Bobby Charles tribute set on the Live show at 9pm Monday night. He’s also the subject of this week’s Taproot Radio Poll, Your favorite Bobby Charles songs.

In other news, this week I added a new video of Carrie Rodriguez covering Lucinda Williakms’ “Steal Your Love.”

The results of the last week’s Rate Your Favorite Elvis Song poll were all over the map. Follow the link to see the full results.

Dig Deep,
Calvin
