This Friday, April 22 at 11:00 p.m. WCVE PBS will be re-broadcasting the Tweedy episode of Austin City Limits from the show’s 40th Anniversary Season. This is one of the best ACL episodes of the last few years so it’s definitely worth watching (or re-watching). Every single song is a winner.

This Saturday, April 16, 2016 is Record Store Day, the most important day on the record-buying calendar. It’s a day to celebrate brick and mortar independent record stores and the music lovers who shop at them. In the months leading up to Record Store Day processing plants are filled with orders for archival live recordings, demos, outtakes from the cutting room floor, reissues, new albums and more… anything that can be seen as special or collectible.
We hope you will join us on Time for the Blues this Saturday night (4/9/16) at 11:00 as Henry and I are planning a great show with a mix of new songs to rock the night away. The jokes will probably be as bad as ever, but trust me, the music is going to light up your world.
It's time to get out of Africa for this week's World Music Show (4/9).
