Plenty of variety on the show this week, starts off with some oldies, JJ Cale, Michelle Shocked & Dwight Yoakam. Then into The Hacks, White Owl Red and Sleepy Eyes Nelson. Some interesting quite sleazy blues from Israel with Noya Sol, the fantastically dark and lonely Doc Feldman and The LD50 and a cool band called Late Night TV. Went for a rummage through station vinyl and found a Lone Justice LP and a Jason & The Scorchers EP - and unfortunately played them. Some parts of the '80's have not travelled well in this genre! Meanwhile back in the present century, locals Kendal Ellise & Emily Fairlight. A pretty groovy outing in spanish with Gatomajodo. Some Old '97's, Johnny Miles and The Kilometres , Slow Motion Cowboys then back into the station vinyl for The Triffids(!), live recordings of Marlon, Townes and Social Distirtion before returning to the station vinyl which redeemed itself with the very interesting Warumpi Band from Northern Territory Australia. There's more too of course.

A show with a vibe centred around a chat with Adam McGrath of the Eastern. Townes, Bob Dylan, Son Volt, Anna Tivel for some folkyness. Then new tunes from The Felons, Bohannons, Mary Battiata & Cory Brannan. A big chat with Adam about his current tour and show at the Tuning Fork on June 8th, and playing a bit of Upper Hutt Posse in his honour. ( That ain't no Hank WIlliams song ! ) And then tapering off with Some crazy old 70's rednecks, back on the protest vibe Billy Bragg and Wilco and heaps more in between.

The Aotearoa Americana show for NZ Music Month, wallowing in the glory of it all. Not surprisingly featuring Marlon Williams, The Warratahs, Delaney Davidson, The Eastern, Reb Fountain, Kendall Elise, The Broadsides, Bernie Griffen and The Grifters & The Vietnam War among others. A little more surprisingly perhaps, sneaking in that quaint Hallelejah Picassos version of Who do you love?, Some Chills & Street Chant's epic NZ folk song of despair, Pedestrian Suppport League.

Show starts with a few old and familiar tunes from REM, The Hangdogs, Pixies doing Neil Young kind of thing, then dips into plenty of brand new tunes mainly from out of South Carolina thanks to a sampler I found on-line. Cool bands like Kid Trails, She Returns from War and Slow Motion Cowboys. Then disaster strikes!! An attempt to get fruity with the '70's vibe goes awry about halfway through the show - but stick in there 'cos it comes back with more new tunes from the likes of Late Night TV some lovely local stuff from Kendall Elise and Emily Fairlight, a Lone Justice blast from the past and Star Anna who I haven't played for a while. SO yeah, nice show with a messy interlude. Aroha mai !

A fun show with the theme 'Geographical features'. Lots of roads, a ton of rivers, a mountain or two, some moons, valleys and a even chemical plant. A real mixed bag featuring Reb Fountain, Marty Robbins, Dolly Parton, Sarah Shook and The Disarmers, Robert Earl Keen, Robert Ellis, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Little Feat and that awesome pairing of Delaney Davidson and Barry Saunders.
