Last night’s fabulous show, featuring Nathan and the BeBop Cowboys provided lots of inspiration. The men in the BeBop Cowboys are all legends in their own right, and all have done time with some of Canada’s best, so we checked out some of their other accomplishments, as well as some classic Western Swing, which put us in the mood for some of the great sounds of yesterday, which inspired a trip down classic country memory lane.

We did leap into the present/future near the end of the show with some great new music, including a couple of releases that should have made our best of ’08 lists, but reached our ears just a little too late.

We started things off with one of my favourite features of the year, a look at what songs, albums, and artists were most played in the previous year. After that, it was in the other direction, as we pulled out some things we haven’t heard in a while, for a feature called “Where Are They Now,” where we listened to some folks who seemed bound for glory and then, for whatever reason, faded away. Whomever and wherever they are, we thank them for what they’ve given us and wish them well.
