CowboyJimmie Rodgers

"So I drank myself my whiskey and dreamed I was cowboy and rode down to the border". Maybe it's the end of summer, the heat and the sunbaked grass turning brown, but I've been having cowboy dreams. So for this week's show I'll be heading for the border, just like in the Lyle Lovett song, and exploring some different musical genres. I'll celebrate the birth of the Jimmie Rodgers, who some call "The Father of Country Music", by playing some country, but also some blue grass and even a little blues. Hope you tag along and tune in, Friday at 8 PM on KRUU.
