Peach State Festival
Thursday  8pm - 10pm
"The Sagebrush Boogie Radio Programme of The Air"
Hosted By Dave Chamberlain

"Sagebrush Boogie" is hosted by the less-than-hirsute Dave Chamberlain, and is the Thursday night installation of the WRFG "Peachstate Festival". "Sagebrush Boogie" has aired since 1984, thowin' down a mix of Western Swing, Rockabilly, Classic Country music, Hawaiian music and even the dreaded YODEL! Enclosed, you'll find playlists from recent "Sagebrush.." broadcasts, updated as the mood hits - accurate, but perhaps not timely....
So join us from 8 PM to 10 PM as we blow the dust off some cheesy vinyl and slide on down the rhythm trail!
~And of course, be a good friend and neighbor and call us at the Bunkhouse Of The Air: (404)523-8989....and follow "Sagebrush.." on FACEBOOK, too!

Doing a radio show while sneezing, coughing and blowing one's nose is not supposed to happen, yet it did on February 4, 2016. The Bunkhouse was filled with the usual sounds of Western Swing while the pained sounds of the common cold were abundant, too.

January 28, 2016. Hot Club Of Cowtown guitar titan Whit Smith called the Bunkhouse from Elko, Nevada for lengthy conversation about his life as a Western Swing musician, recording a new CD, idols George Barnes and Bob Wills, and finally, the iconic archtop of jazz - the Gibson L-5.
He is consumed with the history of this important and danceable music, and his band really knows how to beat an audience to a pulp, or at least get them moving!

January 21, 2016. Old friend Greg Germani came in with a small number of precious recordings to share. He has been away after a life-changing event, but the love of music and sharing it have never left him. So, good tunes were played, conversation was spirited, and the phones lit up. Just like old times....

2016 is already shaping up to be the Year Of Live Music at the Sagebrush Bunkhouse.
On January 13, 2016, the trio called "Rodeo Twister" came in and showed us that Country Music and Rock and Roll can co-exist peacefully. They sang powerfully and picked like champs. They had a good time, and the telephone rang out with glee...
In between all that, these songs somehow got spun:

January 7, 2016. Sagebrush Boogie celebrated 33 years of swinging broadcasts last night. It has been an adventure making a two hour show from scratched vinyl and skipping CDs, but somehow it all comes together. More important, though, is the cast of musicians who nervously show up decade after decade and do their very best in the quaintly primitive broadcast studio. As part of our muted celebration, we invited the "Back In The Saddle" Western Quartet to play live at the Bunkhouse of The Air, and they did not disappoint. The band blazed thru 5 Western classics and took our ears somewhere far west of the Mississippi, where tumbleweeds roll and coyotes howl...

December 24, 2015. Christmas Eve and all the musicians were stirring, including my spouse.

On Thursday, November 19, an old friend came by the Sagebrush studios for a chat about guitars, recording, and Western Swing.

On November 12, 2015 we interviewed author and historian Craig Maki, AKA Rockabilly-ologist "Bones" Maki.
Mr. Maki has written a fine book entitled "Detroit Country Music" that tells the story of how the automotive industry and musical hillbillies came together in the 1930s to shape the early days of Country music.

November 5, 2015. The finale of the RFG Fall Marathon came with a salute to the tortured artists known as yodelers. Against our better judgment , we whipped out 33 throat bustin' yodel tunes during the "YODEL-RAMA" segment of the show.

October 29, 2015.
For Week Two of the 'RFG Marathon we went to the Sagebrush Hillbilly Library and pulled two hours of real, unadulterated COUNTRY Music for the folks who cannot live without a bleak lyric and a steel guitar..
So, Hank Williams slithered into the Ol' Rumpled Record Bag and long, lean Ernest Tubb squeezed in there, too. Ray Price shoved Faron Young out of the way to let pretty Miss Dottie West enter, and George Jones jumped in from the window up above.

October 22, 2015. The first week of the 'RFG Fall Marathon found us going deep into the Sagebrush Library of Licks for two hours of hot instrumentals. The sideman is often overshadowed by the singer, the songwriter and the star, so when we can enjoy an uninterrupted guitar solo or two, all is good...

October 15, 2015. When it comes to guitar heroes, Jim Campilongo winds up near the top every time we take a poll around the Bunkhouse. He unleashes unrelenting, musicianly abuse on his Fender Telecaster every time he straps the poor thing on. Plus, he's written distinctive melodies that run the gamut from happy and quirky to downright despondent..

Floyd Tillman - Each Night At Nine

September 17, 2015 was the night that Hulda Quebe called.


Hmmmm...I know you're saying "I'm pretty sure I don't know Hulda Quebe".

Well, Ms. Hulda Quebe is one-third of the wonderfully fetching Quebe Sisters Band who are bringing three fiddle gymnastics and three-part vocal harmonies to America. About time, we think.
Anyway, we talked about how she and her sisters came to be captivated by hot fiddle, Western Swing, and life on the road. Her youthful enthusiasm was very contagious, and when we hung up the phone, a smile was on our face.

The use of the 45 rpm disc in today's media is a laughable one. The little records usually have only one action packed tune per side, usually in the 3 minute range, and there are the often exasperating aspects of skipping and popping that come with the vinyl lifestyle.

Klezmer music is a stranger to "Sagebrush.." - it gets played elsewhere, but on the night of September 3rd, 2015 the explosive sounds of The Marlatov Cocktails changed all that. Led by violinist Ms. Marla Feeney, the 9 person nonet squeezed into the cozy confines of the Bunkhouse and played the hot Jewish jazz that we all love. Hey, it's Country and Eastern music!

The music of Hawaii made the trip to the Bunkhouse a pleasure on August 13, 2015. The slide of a steel guitar, the happy strum of a ukulele, and the soulful voice of a wahine; all make for generally intoxicating listening. So, with this in mind, we played two hours of the heady stuff, leading several listeners to remark that they had never felt so refreshed in their lives...
We were assisted in our luau of the airwaves by Mr. Jody James Chamberlain, who is sadly leaving the Sagebrush studios to study Country music in the hills of Tennessee. Good luck, young feller..

August 6, 2015. Week One of the WRFG Marathon was spent assembling a two hour honorarium to the earth shaking pedal steel guitar titan Buddy Emmons and the gentle giant of the guitar, Chester "Chet" Atkins.

July 16, 2015. 31 songs stroked past at the languid pace that everything does in the depths of July.
