Playlist - 1/15/2017

Hi Folks.

Today was an all Joe Bussard day, and before you get to the playlist, let me explain why.


Jim and Joe Bussard in late December 2016
I took a trip the day after Christmas to see Joe Bussard in Frederick MD followed by a visit with friends and family in North Carolina.  I was scheduled to return to CT January 7th and host the Red Rooster Party January 8th; however, a half-inch of sleet and freezing rain and an inch of snow shut down the airport in NC I was using, and that delayed my return until late Monday night January 9th.  Marti was prepared to do the January 1st show, but Joe had not sent me his New Year's Day show before I left to go see him, so we aired a show that had been preempted earlier in the year that was still fresh for Red Rooster Party.  Joe gave me his show for January 8th while I was visiting him, so when I was not able to return for the January 8th show, Joe's show for that day didn't make it, either. Marti replayed a great show from 2008 titled "Fred Tales" about dogs (we did that show after we lost our last dog, Fred.) To top this off, Joe's New Year's Day show arrived while I was away.

Whew!

To get all of these shows aired as soon as possible, I decided to give Joe the entire two hour show today instead of his usual hour, and we played his New Year's Day Country Classics show as well as his Hot Town Jazz monthly show which actually was scheduled to air today on the 15th.  We are nearly caught up as soon as we can air Joe's January 8th show.  Perhaps we will do that next week along with the January 22nd show.

Now, on to the playlist.


Joe did a special Hank Williams Tribute for the first half hour, followed by his usual Country Classics, and then brought many obscure jazz classics to us on his Hot Town Jazz show.  We're proud of Joe's Hot Town because it is the only jazz show he has ever done for any radio station, and it is unique to Red Rooster Party and WHUS.

We hope you enjoyed what we played, and will join us next Sunday 2-4pm ET for another great afternoon of classic country music.
