At Three Sisters Bluegrass festival

Rhonda Vincent on stage in the distance.

Great crowd down at Ross’s Landing in Chattanooga. All the acts so far have been great, too.

And it’s free!

Saturday’s crowd was even bigger. The acts were, again, wonderful performers.

Forthcoming: WAWL 220929 Edition

UPDATE: The show this week is postponed to next week due to unforeseen circumstances. Do tune in next Thursday, 29 September, at 6pm EDT.

Thursday’s show @ 8pm highlights Throwing Muses’ ‘86 LP Throwing Muses, originally untitled & was 4AD’s first US release, from the ‘98 compilation In A Doghouse. It’s a 2-CD collection that includes the original demos, sadly out of print but might see a rerelease soon. Don’t confuse this album with the very different 2003 record, also self-titled.

Dear friends, in the 6 and 7 o’clock hours I’ll play new music from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Beths, Matt Bohannon, Maggie Rose, a live song from Courtney Barnett, and other tasty aural treats.

Tune in to at 6pm EDT and look here at for the track list. Requests are welcome at +1.423.697.4406 and at @papajojoradio on Twitter.
