Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 9 November 2008

On this morning's show, we started off with a set of gospel, and then transitioned into an old-time set through some classic bluegrass. Then I had a great time playing some early 1970s recordings of Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys featuring Roy Lee Centers on the lead vocals (and sometimes John Duffey on the high baritone harmonies!) -- these were classic recordings and made me want to play a bunch more! I also included a set of songs for Veteran's Day, including the distinctly not-bluegrass-or-old-time "Veteran's Day" by Tom Russell.
