Steeleye Span The Old Maid in the Garrett/b. Tam Lin (Reel)
Time Shanachie 2005
This 90s edition of the Span was awfully good - and this song is a blast.
Thompson Family One Life at a Time
Family Fantasy 2014
Richard Thompson recording with his family.
Joan Armatrading When I Get It Right
Walk Under Ladders A&M Records 1981
I can't even sing the tricky fast word play she does in my head, but it sort of runs there frequently these days.
Cheri Knight That I Might See
The Knitter East Side Digital 1995
After the Blood Oranges broke up, she did two very fine solo albums, then dropped out of the biz.
Stray Cats Three Time's a Charm N
40 Surfdog Records 2019
I can always listen to Brian Setzer play the guitar.
Robert Plant Billy's Revenge
Now and Zen (Remastered) Es Paranza 2007
This record is almost as old as KDHX - it actually came out in 1988.
The Hold Steady Star 18 N
Thrashing Thru the Passion Frenchkiss Records 2019
My fave song on the new album.
The Rolling Stones If You Can't Rock Me
It's Only Rock 'N' Roll Polydor Records 2012
I have to face the choice every time - if I want the nice album pictures to accompany the playlist, I have to pretend this 1974 album came out in 2012, and that it was on Polydor, which is crazy!
Madonna I Don't Search I Find
Madame X Boy Toy, Inc., 2019
Madonna, older than me by three or four months, still has some skills.
The Undertones Jimmy Jimmy
The Undertones Salvo 2004
This album came out in 1979, and I played the heck out of it back then.
The Sweet The 6-Teens
Desolation Boulevard Capitol Records 1988
This 1975 classic is glam pop/rock at its finest.
Marvin Gaye You're the Man, Pt. I & II N
You're the Man UNI/MOTOWN 2019
Recorded in 1972, and turned up on multiple reissues, but now all the obscurities of that time are on one album.
Aretha Franklin Young, Gifted and Black
Young, Gifted and Black Rhino Atlantic 1972
Sometimes, I think early 70s soul was the apex of the genre. This is jaw-dropping stuff.
The Sherrys Pop Pop Pop-Pie
At the Hop With the Sherrys Diamond Days 2013
Way back in 1962, this delighted the few who got to hear it.
Chick Corea Armando’s Rhumba (feat. The Spanish Heart Band) N
Antidote (feat. The Spanish Heart Band) Concord Jazz 2019
I do love to hear what Chick Corea comes up with next.
Patty Larkin I'm Fine (feat. The Nields)
Signature Sounds Recording Company 2010
This album, on which Larkin teamed up with many of her fave artists, was my introduction to this terrific songwriter/singer.
Joy Williams Preacher's Daughter N

Beautiful song about her late father.

Wilco We Were Lucky N
Ode to Joy dBpm Records 2019
The Nels Cline showcase on this album.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience Up from the Skies
Axis: Bold As Love Legacy Recordings 2009
1967, not 2009. And a brilliant record.
Albert King Born Under a Bad Sign
Born Under A Bad Sign Stax 2002
Back in 1967, Albert King recorded his signature song.
Peter Frampton Band She Caught the Katy N
All Blues UMe 2019
I don't know what the Katy is, but I do know Frampton plays the heck out of this song.
Della Mae Bourbon Hound (feat. Molly Tuttle & Avril Smith) N
The Butcher Shoppe - EP Rounder 2019
They've already got four great singers, so they might as well add two more for this cut.
Renee Wahl & The Sworn Secrets Temptation N
Cut to the Bone Double R Records 2019
She'll be at the Maplewood Rafters next Saturday Oct. 19

Blues, Boogie & Bop: The 1940s Mercury Sessions Mercury 1995
A trumpeter who lived in the nexus of jazz & r&b back in the 40s.
For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) Columbia 1981
A rock'n'roll machine!
Eli "Paperboy" Reed Holiday N
99 Cent Dreams Yep Roc Records 2019
He does retro-soul right!
Percy Mayfield You Don't Exist No More
The Singles Collection: 1947 - 1962 ACROBAT 2019
A 1954 gem from his time on Specialty.
LaVern Baker It's So Fine
It's So Fine: The Complete Singles As and Bs 1953-1959 Jasmine 2010
This 1958 b-side is typical LaVern Baker fun.

More instrumental brilliance!
Southern Culture On the Skids Soulful Garage
Mojo Box Kudzu Records 2004
A very fine rock'n'roll trio.
Jim Lauderdale The Secrets of the Pyramids N
From Another World Yep Roc Records 2019
I think Lauderdale has released more albums during my time on the radio than anybody else - I wonder if that makes him my most played artist?
Los Texmaniacs & Lyle Lovett Deportee (feat. Lyle Lovett)
Cruzando Borders Smithsonian Folkways Recordings 2018
Lyle Lovett joins them on this song which unfortunately still feels timely.
The Delines Eddie & Polly N
The Imperial El Cortez / The Delines 2019
I don't know why this album didn't grab me at first, because now I pretty much love it.
Alejandro Escovedo Thirteen Years
Thirteen Years New West Records 2012
1994, not 2012! Crazy the way these reissues complicate everything.
Rick Estrin & the Nightcats I'm Running N
Contemporary Alligator Records 2019
Some killer harmonica here, and a typically fun performance.
Thin Lizzy Killer Without a Cause
Bad Reputation Virgin EMI 1977
Ending with a classic rock song.
