Country Pocket Playlists

Country Pocket playlist for 03/19/2018

I play some new singles from some amazing people who all happen to be releasing new singles at the same time. Look below. It's quite a list.

The second hour sees me revisiting a mid-2015 playlist that still holds up really well for me. Seriously, congrats to me for working former American Idol Runner-Up Bo Bice into a playlist next to Mavis Staples and having it work kinda okay.

Also, some guy kept pushing and pushing on the phone until I agreed to play "Green Grass & High Tides." Immediately. Not between my two playlists. Now. Grrrr.

Two Cents In The Till guest to promote their new album Greenland. Aside from the tracks I was able to play on the show, I recommend "July Fling," "Dear Old Whiskey," and "Until It Takes." Also featuring new tunes from Kacey Musgraves, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Wylie & The Wild West.

Country Pocket playlist for 11/27/2017

Thor Platter leads today's show with his debut album Take Time. With the end of 2017 coming near, I can't help but replay Natalie Hemby's interview and album. It's an easy Top 5 of the Year for me and it last aired in March.

Two shows left this year! Something pretty special is hitting on Christmas Day.

Dori Freeman, Drew Kennedy, and three songs with spooky titles because I had 10 minutes to fill.

Country Pocket playlist for 10/16/2017

What a jam-packed show this week! Gill Landry, Amber Cross, and Jake Duda all stop by to chat about their new albums. This playlist should give you a pretty good idea of the highlights from each.

Country Pocket playlist for 08/21/2017

There's nothing I can do, it's a total eclipse of a playlist. Lots of sun, moon, and shadow songs.

Country Pocket playlist for 04/17/2017

First, Jaime Wyatt talks about her 'outlaw' experience and distaste for judgement. Then at 7, a preview of Friday's concert produced by this very show in Smithtown's Frank Brush Barn. I figured the best way to do that was to rerun our Sep 6 show. We don't have much time for other tracks but I slipped one in from Jack White protege Lillie Mae.

Next week: Jenni Lyn (of Della Mae) with a solo album and more
