Border Radio with Bernie GriffenBorder_Radio__271220_1900.mp3
Bernie Griffen is more than ably assisted by Garth Cartwright. Garth is the author of the book 'More Miles Than Money', a trip through the Southwest of the United States catching up with the old performers. One of whom was lydia Mendoza who was in her 90's when Garth spoke to her. It's a few years old now , the book , but in my opinion one of the loveliest dissertations on the love of Routes music i have ever read. He is in NZ for 3 months and will do another show with me sometime in February celebrating the 60th anniversary of Arhoolie Records. So "listen up" , that too will be a great show. Next week I have Ian Tucker up on the show to play his endless collection of vinyl. Happy New Year!
