It’s a light list this month, but here’s what we’ve got:

Bob McLennan, board member

Steve Earle-Ghosts of West Virginia-see Buffalo Bob Sez
Tom Waits-Blue Valentine-Among so much great music, this is my favorite
Downtown Dynt-a Scandinavian group playing great Irish, Scottish and sea songs
Jim Carroll-Catholic Boy-I dug up some old cassettes and records
Cindy Cashdollar-Waltz in Abilene-looking forward to Cindy coming back to my favorite venue; the last time I saw her there was with Albert Lee
PT Gazell-a Mark Panfil recommendation-blues, jazz harmonica
Risque Rhythm ‘N’ Blues and Those Dirty Blues-I made a great playlist of a lot of old timey jazz and blues that I had on cassette, sex was always a popular theme in music, even before the drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll.  Also, “Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll” – Ian Dury and the Blockheads
Patrick Gormley, vice president
I’ve been listening to either Orville Peck or Murder by Death most nights this month.

One of the things I’ve been doing during the quarantine is attempting to put together a “canon” playlist on my phone, the perfect playlist of my all-time faves. What it’s been turning into so far is a list of what are often regarded as “cult” artists who have won my heart, in many cases more so than the big names (although they are a few in there). So what I’ve been listening to recently includes lots of (with locals likely to be added next month) …
Commander Cody & the Lost Planet Airmen (and Bill Kirchen solo!)
Flamin’ Groovies
Link Wray
George Thorogood
Thee Midnighters
Brownsville Station
Kentucky Headhunters
Tonio K
Teenage Head
Iggy & the Stooges
Tommy James
Dr. Feelgood
Bruce Springsteen
Greg Hennessey, board member
I am listening to Cathy Carfagna, John & Mary, Jimmie Raye, Ramblin’ Lou, Squeeze and Little Richard (among others).
