Monday, September 23

Mixtape Vol.1 is the new covers collection from Texas-based singer-songwriter Jesse Dayton. The album features countrified versions of songs from The Cars, Dr. Feelgood and others. We’ll hear music from that as well as selections from Live At The Ryman, the upcoming record from Old Crow Medicine Show.

Tuesday, September 24

Minnesota musician Charlie Parr returns with a new self-titled album that features longtime favorites such as “Cheap Wine” and “Jubilee.” We’ll hear music from it as well as songs from Shawn Colvin’s new acoustic recording of her 1989 debut, Steady On.

Wednesday, September 25

Creedence Clearwater Revival performed at Woodstock on August 16, 1969 but the band’s leader, John Fogerty, blocked the release of the performances for more than 50 years and wanted the group excluded from the popular 1970 Woodstock film. The quartet’s full performance is finally available in the form a live album. Listen for selections from it as well as selections from jazz guitarist John Scolfield’s take on country music, Country For Old Men.

Thursday, September 26

Scenes from the Flood is the new album from bassist Bryan Beller, a wide-ranging concept that features guest appearances from the likes of Joe Satriani, Mike Keneally and more. We’ll hear songs from the album as well as other music Beller has recorded since the early 1990s.

Friday, September 27

Listen for selections from Volunteer, the 2018 studio album from Old Crow Medicine Show as well as songs from Gillian Welch’s Time The Revelator.

We'll also remember Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, who died Monday at age 78. In addition to his work with the Dead, Hunter also collaborated with Bruce Hornsby, Los Lobos and Bob Dylan.

In 1988, Minneapolis group The Replacements were hopeful that they might finally make a commercial breakthrough after nearly a decade as a band. The group the band made that year (and released in 1989) may have ultimately led to the quartet’s demise in 1991. A new box set, Dead Man’s Pop, features a new mix of the album, live cuts and numerous outtakes, elements from a late-night jam session with Tom Waits. We’ll hear music from that recording as well as from former Replacement bassist Tommy Stinson’s band Bash & Pop’s early ‘90s debut, Friday Night Is Killing Me.

Monday, October 30

We’ll preview our October featured artists: The Replacements and NRBQ.
