MONDAY JUNE 24, 2019 – Rumors swirled over the weekend concerning former Yonder Mountain String Band founding member Jeff Austin. Despite numerous social media posts alluding to a possible suicide, official reports emerged that he suffered a undisclosed medical emergency and was is Seattle with family being attended to. What little information is available, and crowdfunding has been set up at Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.
In this week’s show I highlighted some of the best of 2013 in HOUR 1 and some of the best of 2014 in HOUR 2. Over the next many weeks I will continue to highlight some of the best of each year as we approach the BEST OF THE DECADE. With that, I’ve put up two polls already for Best of 2010 and 2011, so you can vote for your favorites from those years.
MMMM this week = Gun Street Ghost, Heavy Diamond Ring, Bobby Messano, Swerve, The Threadbarons, and Brian Bourgault – KEEP or DELETE?
