TEamon McGrathSome really exceptional new records today. First, we have Tommy Womack, a new singer songwriter from Nashville. Then Kevin Gordon. This native of Monroe LA, now living also in Nashville, made a new record Gloryland which is a true masterpiece and it got a lot of very nice attention in the music press these days. Canadian rocker Eamon McGrath also has a new record out Young Canadians. The concept is loosely all things Canadian, but it also mentions a ghost of Bob Stinson. I will go out on the limb and say that with this record McGrath establishes himself as the greatest young songwriter of today and finishes the race for the best record in 2012 already. It’s hard for me to imagine that it’s even possible to make a record as good as this one by the end of the calendar year. And then there’s also Jack White with his new album Blunderbuss. Swedish paisley poppers Plastic Pals are also represented today with their new single.

Stacie Collins Exactly ten years ago in this show we introduced a little known Italian Americana band Cheap Wine. Since then, they became a constant in our show. Recently, they put out a 2CD live album called Stay Alive, worth of two full hours of dusty rock’n’roll. I’m glad to have them still next to us. Besides this, in our show today we have the brand new collaboration between Wanda Jackson and Jack White. We also introduce the amazing harpist and singer Stacie Collins. She is lucky enough to be backed by the legendary Jason and The Scorchers. Wanda with Jack and Stacie with Warren are lethal rock’n’roll amalgams! We also introduce The Jaybirds from Salzburg in Austria – a band that belongs to a 60s retro movement that’s always fun to listen to.
