Episode #250

Some requests & dedications started us off on the right track. Then, it’s Oscar night tonight and a couple of movies with great soundtracks are up for some big awards, so we heard some great movie music. Following that, we look ahead to March, which is music month with an outstanding lineup of shows, kicking off with John Wort Hannam & Twilight Hotel on Friday (which is technically February, but who’s counting), then Josh Ritter and Two Hours Traffic on Saturday. And that’s only the beginning!
