The new Laura Cantrell’s album deals with means of transportation. Trains, boats, planes… One of the songs on it is Merle Haggard’s Silver Wings and we check out several versions of it in today’s show.

Tim Lee 3 – Good2b3

May 1st, 2008

Tim Lee is a southern gentleman with a respectable career in rock’n’roll behind him. He started out in Mississippi’s own new wave outfit The Windbreakers. Like all proper things that come from the south, Tim’s new wave was deeply rooted in rock’n’roll traditions while still being always fresh. Forward thinking college rock crowd at the time embraced The Windbreakers as a rare [...]
