Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 2 November 2008

This week, I listened to the Moonshine Show rather than hosting it. I was down in Virginia, pounding the pavement in advance of the election, and so WKCR's American Director David Seidenberg and our Moonshine show intern Jeff Kandel took the helm. They played a bunch of classic Flatt and Scruggs material for the first half of the show and then opened the doors to some other bluegrass greats in the second half. Whenever David hosts the show, I always get e-mails from listeners, saying, "Great show today, Matt!" and I have to fess up that it wasn't me hosting the show. So kudos and thanks to David and Jeff for a good one in my absence.
