Big Broadcast: Austin, Odessa, and Everything In Between
Newly rediscovered tapes from the Cactus Cafe showcase the late Doc Watson at his prime. We’ll sample a priceless performance from the archives. Also: a surprise track from Cotton Mather raises speculation of a new album. We’ll revisit the summer Odessa, Texas took over the world. New Iron and Wine, the week’s music news and much more on the next Texas Music Matters. Join us Friday at noon and again Friday night at 11 on KUT 90.5.
Notes from this weeks show:
The new Cotton Mather track debuted on the Big Broadcast, “I’ll Be Gone”, is a song that was a long time staple of the band’s shows. In advance of its national release on iTunes, you can learn more here.
Miss Lavelle White (the Texas rhythm & blues legend who closed out today’s Big Broadcast) will be performing for East End Fourth Friday, June 22nd, at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard with WD-41 Dave Laczko – trumpet and effects, Willie Oteri and The Cipher. Gates open at 7pm. Tell ‘em Texas Music Matters sent ya.
