Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 23 November 2008

I thought that it was a pretty fun and exciting Moonshine Show yesterday!

We started off with a seasonally appropriate tune, and then we played some music from Tony Trischka, who be appearing on Tuesday night at Joe's Pub in support of his excellent CD Territory on the Smithsonian Folkways label, and then we also played music from Laurie Lewis, who appears at the Emelin Theatre on December 5th, and the Seldom Scene, who will be at B.B. King's on December 7th. (We gave away a pair of tickets to the Seldom Scene show and will have two more pair for giveaways next Sunday!)

Then we turned things over to our intern Logan, who gave us a lesson on the mandolin technique of Bill Monroe. I played some music featuring Charlie Sizemore, who was celebrating his 48th birthday. Our other intern -- and now licensed WKCR programmer -- Jeff programmed two sets of ballads. And then we wrapped up the show with a couple of bluegrass classics: "Viva Las Vegas" and "Superfreak."
