With A Western Flavor...

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

I periodically get a hankerin' to do a show of country or western-flavored music. This is one of those weeks and one of those shows. And, to top it off, in the night’s mail was the latest Western-infused album by Tom Russell, “Indian Cowboys Horses Dogs” on HighTone. We squeezed in two cuts.

In the mix are old "friends" like Russell, Jack Hardy and Dave Alvin and new "finds" such as actor Ronny Cox and the Texas duo of Albert & Gage. During the past year, Riders in the Sky celebrated 25 years as a musical group.
