It’s Wednesday, everybody. That means it’s time for another great night of programming on WDVX with This Week in Americana at 6:00, Tennessee Shines at 7:00, and The Americana Pulse taking you into the night from 8:00-11:00.
Tonight on The Americana Pulse, I’ll finally get to air an interview I’ve been wanting to share with you guys since last September. Allison Moorer released her new record, Down to Believing, yesterday. Tonight on Three Songs (8:30), you’ll hear Allison talk about that new record, why Leon Russell’s music gets stuck in her head, and what it’s like to raise a son with Autism. We’ll also hear a song from the album that you’ll probably never hear again on WDVX. We had to break out the bleep button… but it was well worth it.
Also, throughout the night, we’ll be spending a good amount of time with Todd Snider‘s East Nashville Skyline in our Classic Album segments. I’ve been listening to Todd’s music a lot lately after reading his book late last year, and I still think Skyline stands as the best, most complete album of his career. I just hope the guy is still doing OK.
Of course, the night begins at 6:00 with This Week in Americana. As always, I’ll start the hour by taking a look at this week’s Americana Album Chart, share a bunch of new tunes (Feufollet, MilkDrive, William Elliott Whitmore, Ben Sollee, and more), and even share a few nuggets from this year’s Couch By Couchwest online music festival that’s going on right now.
Speaking of which…
East Tennessee’s Own Mic Harrison & The High Score debuted their CXCW video last night. Tonight, Mic & the boys are playing Tennessee Shines from Boyd’s Jig & Reel in Knoxville’s Old City. If you can’t make it down to the show, we’ll broadcast the whole thing live on WDVX at 7:00. It’s gonna be another good one.
