Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 16 November 2008

On today's show, we started off with a set featuring Ricky Skaggs from over the years, played new all-gospel CDs from The Churchmen and Paul Williams, and then heard one 10-minute track from a 1982 David Bromberg live recording that recently has been released on CD. We celebrated the 41st anniversary of the recording of the ultimate bluegrass standard, "Rocky Top," which The Osborne Brothers cut on 16 November 1967. We played some music from the Carolina Jug Stompers, who will be passing through New York this week with a show at Banjo Jim's. There was new music from Beth Stevens & Edge (her band -- not the U2 guitarist), and a bluegrass song written by Sting ("I Hung My Head"). What a show!
