Thursday Night the 7th between 8pm & Midnight: EMMYLOU HARRIS & RODNEY CROWELL - Old Yellow Moon

It's been some 40 years since they met, when Rodney lent his song "Blueberry Wine" to one of Emmylou's early albums.  Now, we finally have a full-length collaboration from them, Old Yellow Moon.  Harris has a great history of duets, from Gram Parsons, Linda Rondstadt and Mark Knopfler, to countless artists she's supported as guest vocalist; this one is no exception.  Produced by Brian Ahern (Harris’ ex-husband and early producer) and featuring members of Harris' original Hot Band (which included Crowell), this is sure to be a WNCW favorite for 2013.  And, the CD is

Monday Night the 4th at 8pm: TOWNES VAN ZANDT - Flyin' Shoes

Heartbreak, hopelessness, mortality....heavy, heady topics for any of us to brood over.  But no one made sense of these unavoidable themes -- or put them into well-crafted poetry -- better than the late great Townes Van Zandt.  In the early 2000's, many of his 70's albums were reissued to a wider audience, and this 1978 gem Flyin' Shoes is one of those classics.  See why Townes is one of our favorite songwriters here at WNCW -- see why Steve Earle made a whole album of his work and even asked him to be his son Justin Townes Earle's godfather -- when we celebrate his March 7
