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!

On Thursday, November 19, an old friend came by the Sagebrush studios for a chat about guitars, recording, and Western Swing. Billy Joe Bob Puckett, the Man With Four Names, is a fine guitarist in the time-honored tradition of Eldon Shamblin or Junior "Fat Boy" Bernard. Billy has logged many years on the bandstand playing the music of Bob Wills and other giants of the art and has also has a new CD produced with steel guitarist Tommy Dodd which captures the happy feel of great 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. In addition, we sprinkled the playlist with Detroit Country hitmakers , and we also saluted guitar titan George Barnes with some Country Jazz from his gifted fingers...

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...
We also found room for an incendiary mini-set by the loony Speedy West and the all-wound-up Jimmy Bryant. Whew!

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..
In other words, he called in from Brooklyn, N.Y. for an interview that covered everything from nut bending to Jimi Hendrix!

On October 1st, 2015 Marshall Ruffin came back to the Bunkhouse for a return engagement. He is like a walking, talking, pickin' and singing combination of Steve Cropper and Smokey Robinson. To be more succinct, he is a soulful guitar playing young man who is writing songs that should be sung by great singers.
After all the talk and live music, these few songs got spun:

Jim Campilongo & The Ten Gallon Cats - Mozart Woulda Played A Tele
The Riders In The Sky - Cherokee
Floyd Tillman - Each Night At Nine
The Rhythm Future Quartet - Summertime

September 24, 2015. Among other things, we remembered Mr. DeWitt Scott whose passing has deprived the world of its Number One steel guitar fan.

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.
The phone moaned with a sleepy jingle and even the ceiling fan slowed to take a breath. Out in Radioland, one sluggish listener sipped chilled tea on his veranda, watching the moon rise with a Western Swing soundtrack.

Buddy Spicher
June 18, 2015. The quiet guitar god Mike Dowling called in from his Rocky Mountain ranch to fill us in on how he manages to tour the world, write books, teach hot guitar and basically just be a fabulous picker. It was a revealing conversation, and he was filled with facts about his favorite guitars and how he became inspired to want to spend his life seated behind a guitar.
It made me want to go home and obsess over the guitar for the foreseeable future..
In addition to Mr. Dowling, these tunes got played..

On June 11 the Bunkhouse did not resound with the voices of singers. We gave them the night off and the air was filled with 27 instrumental offerings from some very hot pickers. The sideman is often relegated to a job of playing rhythm and a solo every now and then, but on Thursday night it was the chance to hear what the sidemen behind the star can do! Assisting that night was our Junior Sidekick of the Air, Mr. Jody Chamberlain.

Thursday, May 28, 2015 will stand as one of the pinnacles of music making on "Sagebrush Boogie". A very fortunate coincidence resulted in the meeting of Sacred Steel guitar master Dante Harmon and the visceral bluesmen of Delta Moon in our humble studio.
The resulting music was unrehearsed and completely hot and empathetic. There have been very few molten-meetings-of-the-minds like this one was. There were heated exchanges between Tom Gray, Mark Johnson and Mr. Harmon on their guitars and the Delta Moon rhythm section of bassist Franher Joseph and snare drummer Vic Stafford kept things simple and in the pocket.
It was transcendent musical communication and one of the good reasons to support WRFG...
In addition, a few recorded songs crept onto the air:

Lost Weekend - Real Western Steel
Tennessee Ernie Ford - Kissin' Bug Boogie
Sol Hoopii - 12th Street Rag
Sol Hoopii - I Ain't Got Nobody
Johnny Gimble - New Gray Bonnet

On May 15th, 2015 the Kris Youmans Band came back to reassert the sound of REAL Country music at the Sagebrush Studios. The trio was composed of Kris Youmans on Martin rhythm guitar and voice, David Puett at the Gibson ES-175 take-off electrical guitar, and Warren Hall on the Sho-Bud Pro III Custom pedal steel guitar. The sound was the real deal. I mean, PEDAL STEEL and Country music - what can go wrong with that???

On April 23, 2015 The Cigar Store Indians appeared at the studio, instruments in hand, yet not a stogie to be seen.
The band was: Ben Friedman, vox & rhythm guitar, Micah Cadwell, sizzling and thoroughly jazz-informed lead guitar, Todd Kerstetter at the doghouse basso profundo, and Mr. Charlie Blevins on the lightly brushed snare drum. They were also joined by our Junior Radio Sidekick of The Air, Mr. Jody James Chamberlain who just happened to have his student trombone handy. The result was an entirely swinging 5 song set from a band with chops and humor to spare. A great night of radio!!

April 16, 2015. We invited the jazz guitarist Wayne Wilkinson to the Sagebrush studio as he was in town for the Atlanta Jazz Party and we'd heard he was a good picker. WRONG!
