Not that most people listening will be bothered; but tonight’s show coincided with Newcastle Utd playing a home game that was going out on TV.
This caused a dilemma as I had tickets for the match; which I subsequently donated to Son #2 and my Grandson; meaning I could watch the first half then drive to the station; hopefully getting there so Producer Dean could scurry home to see most of the second half after letting me into the building.
My Masterplan more or less worked; but trying to follow the match on my phone while setting up the show meant I played the wrong opening song …. and missed a link about ten minutes in!
But in showbiz land …. ‘The Show had to go on’ and it did; quite successfully if I’m allowed to blow my own trumpet.
As usual we had a heady mix of old and new Americana including a new track from the new Stephen Stills album (recorded in 1971!), Aoife O’Donovan covering Atlantic City from her reworking of Bruce’s Nebraska album and the new single from our latest discovery, Jenny Don’t and The Spurs plus a bunch of other ‘first plays’ and oldies from Tom Waits, Dale Watson and Tony Joe White …. as usual we spoilt you and here’s the proof.
