Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 1 February 2009

Midway through today's show, a listener alerted us to the fact that it is Del McCoury's 70th birthday today! Well, we immediately switched into Del McCoury mode at that point and regret not having known earlier. (It also is the 36th birthday of Del McCoury Band fiddler Jason Carter, as another listener alerted us.)

Before that turn, we heard a set of songs from jazz bassist Charlie Haden's roots music CD, Rambling Boy, which includes a couple of very interesting treatments of bluegrass and old-time country hits. And we listened to two tracks from The Gibson Brothers' latest CD, which is a terrific mix of well-chosen covers and well-written originals.

The first song of the show was for Super Bowl Sunday.

Next week, Logan Ledger and Jeff Kandel will co-host the show.
