Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 15 February 2009

On today's show, we played a bunch of Ralph Stanley in advance of his appearance on Wednesday evening at B.B. King's -- we gave away two pairs of tickets for the show. And we spoke on the phone with Graham Sharpe, the banjo player and songwriter from the Steep Canyon Rangers, who appear tonight at Joe's Pub. Personally, I really liked the two songs that we played from Ernie Thacker's new CD, The Hangman, one about Keith Whitley and the other about rumors.
