Smilin' Jay McDowell of BR5-49 fame is my co-host on this Rockabilly N Blues Radio Hour.  He picked all the tunes (except for the last track of BR5-49 that I picked) and tells great stories about why he picked them!  It's a great mix of classics by Warren Smith, Gene Vincent, Ronnie Self, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly, Johnny Burnette & The Rock 'N' Roll Trio, artists from the 80's: The Rockats, Buzz & The Flyers, The Crazy Cats, The Polecats, The Red Devils and artists from the 90's and later: Big Sandy & His Fly Rite Boys, Nick Curran and BR5-49.  We recorded this at the Musician's Hall Of Fame & Museum where Jay works as their Multi-Media Curator.  This is definitely one you don't want to miss!
