Tom Russell “Spanish Burgundy”
from The Long Way Around CD Comp (Hightone 1996) —Larry never danced, but this song, and I'm sure a dozen or so scotch ales coaxed Larry to lead Kathy to the Off Broadway dance floor, wish I would of had a cell phone camera.
Katy Moffatt “On the Borderline (feat. Hugh Moffatt)”
from Live in Holland (Scr Productions 2010) —Katy was a good friend of the show, when Larry was working in commercial country radio in Arkansas, Katy and Steve Young were favorites that he was allowed to play.
The Mollys “Walking Down the Road”
from This is my Round (self 1995) —Larry discovered this Irish Tex Mex polka band after seeing them live and being blown away.
Townes Van Zandt “Tecumseh Valley”
from Texas Troubadour (Charly Records 1968) —Texas songwriters were a huge part of the show, and there was nobody better than Townes, this song may have been our favorite, with a lot tied for 2nd.
Guy Clark “She's Crazy For Leaving”
from Live in Austin, Tex. (self-released 2013) —When your talking genius you can't leave out Guy, asked when his next album was due, Guy always said "When I've got 12 good ones." He has 12 good ones quite often.
Terry Allen “Gimme a Ride to Heaven Boy”
from Bloodlines (SUGAR HILL 1997) —Larry's favorite album of all time "Lubbock On Everything" this song wasn't on it, but it's become a standard of Texas songwriters.
Robert Earl Keen “Corpus Christi Bay”
from Live at KDHX (Songwriter's Showcase) (KDHX 2002) —Robert brought his whole band to the KDHX studios for a wonderful 45 minute set, that included Larry's favorite Robert Earl Keen song, one of many memorable days during the Larry Weir experience.
Eric Taylor “Prison Movie”
from Live at the Red Shack (Blue Ruby 2011) —Another Texas story teller favorite who came to our kdhx studio with another favorite line of Larry's "as long as Johnny Cash plays Me...' It's great to see the studio full of people, here to say goodbye.
Gretchen Peters “If Heaven”
from Halcyon (Scarlet Letter Records 2009) —Gretchen became a favorite of the show after she teamed up with Tom Russell and played St. Louis live. Next up 2 kdhx legends to close out 25 years that flew by, to quote Jackson Browne "They say in the end it's the wink of an eye."
Bob Reuter “St. Louis”
from Live at KDHX 3/4/08 (KDHX 2008) L —"Scratchy Bob" a long time neighbor of Songwriter Showcase, tragically taken too early, at his creative peak, his uniqueness and originality is what kdhx is all about, an irreplaceable loss.
Emmylou Harris “Till I Gain Control Again”
from Elite Hotel (Reprise 1975) —It's only to fitting to close this old bakery & 25 years of indelible memories and life long friendships the way Larry ended so many shows, take good care of the place Larry !!
