Nobody's Girl

Betty Soo, Rebecca Loebe, and Grace Pettis together form a new trio in Texas called Nobody’s Girl. We check them out today in our show. Texas also has another legendary trio, self proclaimed more a legend than a band, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock and Joe Ely reformed their Flatlanders. Van Morrison is also here. Lots of people came he’s gone nuts, but we still love him. Jim Lauderdale has a new album and we introduce Jonathan Wilson from LA, Bloodkin from Athens GA, Pilgrim from Tulsa OK and Martha Fields. One of regular listeners in Arizona, Larry created a wooden plaque in honor of the 20th anniversary of The Little Lighthouse, so a very special shout out to Larry!

Bill MorrisseyThe first time I heard of Bill Morrissey was on a very interesting compilation record called Legacy: A Collection of New Folk Music. It included 15 singer songwriters that were all new to me in 1989. It was a new, original take on old folk theme, and gathered an exciting new scene that was budding at the time. Bill was definitely one of the stand-outs. He was based out of New Hampshire and he had several excellent solo records. Check them out especially if you are a fan of Townes Van Zandt or Butch Hancock. But, unfortunately, Bill Morrissey died in a hotel room somewhere in Georgia four days ago and in this show we say goodbye to him. We also have a new song for Detroit Cobras which appeared on the new Buddy Holly tribute. Masonics are a new name at the Lighthouse and they come from London UK. Finally, Disciplina Kicme is also back with a brand new album Uf! and it once again rocks my world.
