Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 7 December 2008

This morning's show began with a birthday tribute to Bobby Osborne who turned 77 today. We played three songs from High Windy's new CD. From western North Carolina, they remind me a lot of the Lonesome River Band; all three songs were written by banjo-player Patrick McDougal. A listener named Paul (from Summit, New Jersey) called up to say that he had seen the Seldom Scene play last night -- they are at B.B. King's tonight -- and that he had gone out afterward with Dudley Connell, who talked John Duffy's final performance before he died of a heart attach: the song was "Walk Through This World with Me," so we played that. The listeners ate up Peter Rowan's reggaebilly song -- we got several calls about that one. The Kings County Strings are a new band from Brooklyn who are celebrating the release of their CD on Friday night at Jalopy. (It's also the name of mandolinist Brad Einhorn's instruments store.)
