Don’t Mess With Texas

Sweethearts Of The Radio #12

Howdy folks. First off, I want to thank my brother Earl for keeping my seat warm and playing such great music for the last few weeks. I’d let him do it more often but he has this habit of sneaking Venetian Snares remixes in between the Hank and Willie, you know?

I can’t pretend my recent trip to Texas hasn’t affected this week’s show, cos it obviously has. But as well as music I heard or saw or bought in that great state, there’s a little birthday tribute to Willie Nelson, a Wayne Hancock song seeing as he got hisself in a car wreck and is having all sorts of operations and stuff -get well soon, Wayne – and new music from Jon Langford, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra, Hurray For The Riff Raff, Wooden Wand, Micah P Hinson and The Dirt Daubers. As well as all sorts of stuff from the vaults.
