We’re still in fundraising mode this week at WDVX. I’ll be back on the air tonight spinning tunes and asking for your support. I’m kicking around an idea for a special premium tonight too… so you may want to tune in. You can support WDVX by calling 865-544-1029 or 1-866-946-9389. You can also make a donation and check out our premiums on our website.
The fun starts at 6:00 with the new hour This Week in Americana. We’ll take a look at this week’s Americana Music Chart and hear new music from John Moreland, The Steel Wheels, Sarah Gayle Meech, Candi Staton, The Pine Hill Project (Richard Shindell & Lucy Kaplansky), and more.
At 7:00, we throw it from the studio down to Boyd’s Jig & Reel for an hour of live music with Tennessee Shines. This week, your host Paige Travis welcomes Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley for some killer dobro/guitar Country & Bluegrass action. Head on down to the Old City for this one if you can. These guys are the real deal.
We come back to the studio from 8:00 to 11:00 for The Americana Pulse. I’ll be featuring live tracks from our Spring Fund Drive Thumb Drive once again during our Classic Album Feature segments this week. Three Songs will also move to it’s new time in the second half of the 8:00 hour. We’ll take a look back at some of my favorite segments of 2015 with Mike Farris speaking to the healing power of “Mercy Now,” Sons of Bill discussing the questions of Southern identity posed by “Joey’s Arm,” and Billy Joe Shaver talking about the time he threatened to beat up Waylon Jennings.
I’ll throw in some more new tunes, themed sets, and other weirdness throughout the night.
I hope you can join me.
