Playlist - 5/8/2016

Hi Folks.

This was our Mother's Day show, and we pulled up some country songs fitting the occasion.  We also heard my mother tell the story of her attending a Charlie and Bill Monroe performance at her two-room schoolhouse when she was around 10.

Joe Bussard presented his 31st program of his early country classics from his 78 collection.

This also was the last show at the early morning Sunday time slot.  We moved the show to the morning to avoid the repressive sports preemptions on Sunday afternoons, and since there will be no  preemptions during the summer, we will thrive at our long-time slot 2-4 PM on Sunday afternoons.

I hope you join us then.
