Episode #3- Just Good Records: Shotguns, High Geared Women, Washboards and Organ Grinders.

Today’s show is a variety of down home music pulled exclusively from my collection of 78rpm records. Containing, among others, the likes of Lightning Hopkins, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Clarence Williams, Merle Travis, Duke Ellington, The Carter Family and Bill Monroe, this show is a nice variety of genres that make up an entertaining mix and hopefully is a enjoyable show due to the variety of style contained herein. As always, see the playlist and discography below and I encourage you to seek out this music on your own. Thanks for listening.
