Tonight we celebrate three things:

1) Hard Driving Bluegrass Music form the likes of Joe Val, Del McCoury, Don Reno, and others.

2) The country yodel, as perfected by Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams, Emmett Miller and others.

3) The live music of A Good Natured Riot - - right here at WRIR. They're playing at the Camel this Friday, December the 10th.

This week's cover star is the wonderful yodeling brakeman Jimmie Rodgers!
