Howdy,

The August episode of the Taproot Radio podcast is out! Episode 13 features. blues guitarist Elvin Bishop, Blues pianist Ron Tanski, and roots singer/songwriter Les Sampou. There’s some great stories in this month’s podcast so check it out.

Brian Setzer has a new live CD out, Don’t Mess With The Band.  Onthe one hand you can say there’s not much new on this Live CD that you haven’t heard before. On the other hand, it’s a fantastic performance. So several tracks are going into rotation this week. Fellow WCOM DJ, Fred Wasser, pointed me to some very old school rockabilly covers from Sleepy LaBeef. (Wow, they don’t make stage names like that anymore!). I’ve been enjoying his baritone covers of some early rockabilly and am putting several into rotation.

Added two videos from Elizabeth Cook into rotation this week, “Mama’s Funeral,” and “El Camino.” Also added a video of “Worn Out Shoes” from Caleb Klauder’s upcoming CD, Western Country

Dig Deep,
Calvin

Howdy,

Caleb Klauder’s new CD, Western Country, goes into rotation this week. Talk about channeling Hank Williams! This CD is mostly originals with a few old-time tunes thrown in. I continue to be super-impressed with this guy’s sound and songwriting. You’ll be hearing him in rotation for quite a while. Stonehoney is another group going into rotation that impressed me. They are more into the straight up contemporary country, a little bit too slick for some people’s tastes maybe. But they are accomplished musicians and have good songwriting talent throughout the band.

Don’t forget, the July episode (Episode 12) of the Taproot Music Feed Podcast is out! This month I’m featuring “pulp americana” songwriter J. Shogren, Stones-y New Heathens’ front man Nathan Schweber, and Austin-based singer songwriter Margo Valiante.

Dig Deep,
Calvin
