With A Twinge Of Country

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This is a mix of old and new recordings with a real country and Texas flavor. Feature of the night: Portions of the music recorded in the early 1970s for the James Szalapski documentary, “Heartworn Highways” (1975). Szalapski chronicled the start of a new generation of “country outlaws” that followed Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, some of whom are today the folk and acoustic music scene’s foremost songwriters. The documentary captured them in their early days, mostly around Nashville. The documentary has been released twice on DVD in recent years, the most recent release (2003) being the preferable one.

The album “Heartworn Highways” is different because it is not exactly the soundtrack of the documentary, but the music in its entirety recorded for the documentary, offering early takes on early works of these gifted songwriters. Hacktone is a record label that specializes in neglected and forgotten recordings.

The remainder of the show keeps true to the country theme.
