Honky-Tonkin' Anniversary

WKCR's Honky Tonkin' program celebrated its 10th anniversary last week with a marathon live performance featuring many of the great players who've guested in NYC's only live-radio country music show. Fran Leadon was there and took a bunch of photos, which you can see in the Ponkiesburg group on Flickr. Check them out, and thanks Fran for taking them! Join the group while you're there, and contribute any photos you might have.

Closed-Caption Yodeling

The Sweetback Sisters blew into town Wednesday night for a free show at the Rodeo Bar, too late for the newsletter but in time for me to head over from another event. They packed the place and had people two-stepping in the aisles. They also educated us on the difference between buffalo and bison, and provided closed-caption assistance for the yodeling-impaired. They'll be back in December for a Country Christmas Singalong SPECTACULAR. (Emily said to use the caps.)

Ponkiesburg Up On the Roof

A couple of weeks ago we threw a curve ball at the Sunday jammers. Katie Dixon called in the morning and said the parking garage she'd used for the all-day Downtown Hoedown was available and would we want to play on the roof? So I sent out a last-minute email, left a note at the bar, picked up Doug and Glenn, and headed over there. Luckily enough pickers got the note or saw the email that we had a really wonderful jam. Best of all, some intrepid visitors from London followed the clues and joined us. One of them, James Griffith, sent some gorgeous photos he took that day. Check them out.
