Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Turns 13
The Carbondale Wild West Rodeo is full of cowboys, bull-riding cowgirls, horses that can turn on a dime and riders who don't fall off. Cowboy hats are de riguer in the chutes and so is a certain sense of polite machismo. It's a small town rodeo so all the cowboys say "Yes, Ma'am" and "No, Ma'am" and some even tip their hats. The crowd goes wild for the hide race, the mutton busters, and when the kids chase the calves around the arena. KDNK's Amy Hadden Marsh has been covering CWWR for several years, both for radio and with photographs. Enjoy the slide show and enjoy the rodeo - every Thursday night. Slack is at 6. Grand Entry at 7:30.
John McEuen dropped by the Wholly Bozos show on KDNK with his musical buddy Matt Cartsonis. They brought some nitty and some gritty along with great big smiles, not to mention a beautiful guitar. John played a couple tunes live and told a few stories about Aspen in the early 70s, his new CD Made in Brooklyn , and about his show at the Wheeler commemorating the Will The Circle Be Unbroken sessions. John McEuen and community radio go together like banjo and that high lonesome sound. Come back soon, John!
Frank Martin, guitar slinger and singer/songwriter has produced a new CD Blue on Blue on Blue. He joins Express Yourself with his producer Dave Taylor, of Cool Brick Studios, to talk about the project and play a couple tunes from the album, Pick Up Your Feet and Leaving Cheyenne.
