The Brothers Comatose are playing NYC this Saturday, so show up there to see me and a former program director of this station dancing like a couple of idiots. Or just enjoy their new album "City Painted Gold"

Monica Rizzio called in to discuss her new album "Washashore Cowgirl." A listener called in and compared her songwriting to Emmy Lou's so I think it was a good day.

Sean Watkins came on the show and my head is still trying to comprehend this. We played all of his new album "What to Fear" and talked about suspicious flashlights and thought provoking song writing.

Our Best of March features Gene Watson, Loretta Lynn, Sturgill Simpson and more. Upcoming favorites include Applewood Road and Monica Rizzio. Sean Watkins is the only one to make the list twice with a heady folkgrass album that could easily have covered half the hour if I weren't careful. Plus, a farewell.

Kristin Andreassen joins to program to discuss crayons, a father encouraging his daughter to release a sex song, happy accidents involving children, how horses are like trains, and, of course, a family of people with flaming rear ends. God I loved this interview.

Also we celebrate Parsonsfield's Weeds and Wildflowers being featured on The Walking Dead.

Personal favorite Steamboats drops by to share their amazing new progressive folk album Chosen Peace. All three stop by to discuss highlight tracks. Then we close out with some classical Ravel - a fitting choice for a folk band so heavily influenced by the genre. Support the guys at

Darrell Scott drops by to discuss last year's Ten: Songs of Ben Bullington, which I called album of the year for 2015. Artist's pick was a bit complicated as Ben Bullington has passed, but based on the lyrics to one of his songs I gave it to Kris Kristofferson. Due to a lack of a new Dialogos I reran large parts of last week's show with Dori Freeman during the second hour followed by the Dixie Chicks as they were a topic of conversation. Cory Morrow finished it off with his take on It's a Great Day to be Alive. Morrow is an upcoming Country Pocket guest and Scott Wrote the song.

The Final 4 AM Edition of Country Pocket spends an hour visiting old favorites and an hour showcasing the best new music of January including releases from Buddy Miller, Jennifer Nettles, Brandy Clark, progressive bluegrass prodigy Sierra Hull, and of course the immortal Mavis Staples. Also, a preview of a 20th anniversery show from Irish-American band Solas on February 7th at the City Winery and a sign off track from Cory Morrow I feel truly embodies the spirit of this show's late night adventure.

Today we check out a new album from Randy Rogers Band along with material from his duet release last year with Wade Bowen. Then, the great Gene Watson is given an hour with some of his greatest hits and a few I just happen to like. I've been on a bit of a kick with his stuff lately and I don't want to miss one of my last opportunities to play an hour in the overnight before I head to some new daytime hours.
