Playlist for 3/7/11 Black Diamond Show (WNHU, West Haven, CT, 88.7 FM & www.wnhu.net)

I'm posting the playlist for Monday's show early, since I expect a busy day at work that day. I really enjoyed putting this show together, even if it stretched my credit card a bit at cdbaby.com and amazon.com. Some great new music makes its BDS Debut! The HillBenders "Red Stains" is perhaps the most gruesome tragic wedding day song I've ever heard. And the Gibson Brothers "One Car Funeral" is so sad. And I really like a lot of the tracks on Iron Horse's new CD, "Horse and Pen." Played "Oh Moses" from that CD--and that got me playing other "Moses" songs--with some more to come next week! Charlie Sizemore's new CD is very good, too. How could we not play "No Lawyers in Heaven"?

Plenty of good old music, in this show, too: By request, there's even an Old & In The Way song on the docket!

Even though the WNHU fundraiser will be done by the time the show airs, you can still support WNHU, a great college radio station (University of New Haven) whose programming includes both the student and the off-campus communities, by following this link.

Thanks for your support of the Black Diamond Show, Bluegrass Music, Old-Time Country Music, and WNHU.
