Taproot Radio / Dirty Laundry Live Tonight! 9-11pm


Calvin and Rick will be back on the air tonight from 9-11pm on  WCOM. You can listen in at 103.5FM or via the webcast.

On the  Taproot Radio show tonight I'll be featuring new music Caleb Klauder, Shelby Lynne, Janiva Magness, Willie Nelson, and YARN. I'll also be featuring Ruby Dee and The Snakehandlers, Carrie Rodriguez, and Black Bone Child. 

About tonight's show, Rick says:
"A huge variety tonight, perhaps even an overly self-conscious effort to be all over the musical map -- albeit, with at least one toe dipped into the roots or soul water. There's bluesy jazz (or jazzy blues -- either tag is acceptable), Rumour-backed reggae, rockin' gospel, cheating soul with a twist, and some straight-up country."

The full play list is below and online at the web site. So tune in and listen to some great americana/blues/soul/twang/rock/whatever music.
