Two Radio Shows on August 4

I have two new broadcasts of previously recorded shows slated for Saturday, August 4

"From the Roots" on WMMT-FM 88.7, Whitesburg, KY, and www.wmmtfm.org airs from 11 AM until 2 PM eastern. During the first two hours, the Lazy Farm Boy will offer his more or less annual western swing show. The last hour will feature roots hot platters including releases from the Wandering (featuring Luther Dickinson and Amy Lavere),  Harpeth Rising, Stray Birds, Emily Pinkerton, Rafe & Clelia Stefanini, and Mike + Ruthie.  Originally scheduled to air on July 7.

Great to hear Mrs Bluegrass on WMMT last Monday afternoon.

My guest on The ArtSpot for August 4 on Chapel Hill's WCHL and http://www.chapelboro.com/pages/9680071.php at 11:30 AM Eastern are Donovan Zimmerman & Jan Burger from the paper hand puppet intervention. There play City of Frogs appears at The Forest Theater most of this month. WCHL adds 97.9 FM on August 28!
