Old Crow Medicine Show “Little Sadie” from Troubles Up And Down The Road (self 2001) —Today's show is a trip down memory lane to that mythical year of 2001, when I first came on air. Got to see them at MerleFest in 2001 I believe.Buy it!
Danny Barnes & Thee Old Codgers “All Alone for Christmas” from Things I Done Wrong (Terminus Records 2001) —In 2001 I started co-hosting the Tuesday Morning Show/Morning Show Tuesday and eventually titled When The Levee Breaks with Mary Kaye. In 2006 I began doing Uncontrollable Urge on Weds at 2pmBuy it!
Otis Taylor “Ain't No Cowgirl” from White African (NorthernBlues Music 2001) —I discovered Otis Taylor (this record) on the shelves at KDHX. He's had a great recording career ever since then too (and before, but of cours I made him popular)Buy it!
The Bottle Rockets “Sunday Sunny Mill Valley Groove Day” from Songs of Sahm (Bloodshot 2001) —And we'll send this Bloodshot records set out to Fred Friction who did Fishin' With Dynamite for years here at KDHX, until his retirement this spring.Buy it!
Jonathan Richman “Give Paris One More Chance” from Her Mystery Not of High Heels and Eye Shadow (Vapor Records 2001) —Because France largely opposed war in Iraq/Afghanistan, this song actually became an anti-war song, post 9/11.Buy it!
John Hartford “Gentle On My Mind” from John Hartford : RCA Country Legends (RCA 2001) —1967. I'm cheating just for this song, because it seems like a) a good song to send out to Magnolia Ave, b) we lost John Hartford in 2001 and c) the compilation came out in 2001.Buy it!
NoMeansNo “The Graveyard Shift [Live]” from "A Reasonable Facsimile To What You Witnessed Tonight" (Wrong Records 2001) —A bonus live album that came with a digitial version of their 2010 Tour EP 1. On a wrap around bracelet USB drive. I believe they played the Creepy Crawl in 2001 on this tour, possibly late 2000.Buy it!
The Ex “Time Flies” from Dizzy Spells (Touch and Go Records 2001) —Don't know when the last time NoMeansNo & The Ex played together was, never got to see that double bill but I know they did it in the 80s & 90s in Europe. This is a great record by them too.Buy it!
The Dirtbombs “Chains Of Love” from Ulltraglide In Black (In The Red 2001) —Their new record of Bubblegum music is getting a lot of attention here and on other shows, here they are paying tribute to 70s Funk & SoulBuy it!
