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!

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

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.

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!

April 2, 2015. Grady Martin is a guitar player whose work in Nashville and beyond defined the sound of the Golden Age of Country Music. His impending induction into the Country Music Hall Of Fame is a cause for celebration among guitar players and music fans alike.

March 26, 2015. The final week of the Spring Marathon was spent convincing our studio guests to raise their voices not in song, but with a YODEL. This isn't an easy thing to do as yodeling is usually relegated to a tiled bathroom during a long shower, and not to the airwaves. Nevertheless, 6 brave people volunteered their amateur yodels in the service of fundraising. We applaud their courage and their apparent lack of modesty.
Between the howling, we enjoyed these professional yodelists..

The second week of the Marathon saw the Ol' Rumpled Record Bag overflowing with swinging music, and by that I mean Bob Wills, plus Hawaiian music, to be exact.
Bob Wills rampaged thru our first hour, hollering and fiddling like a deranged cowboy with impulse control problems.
The second hour was a languid escape to the soothing sounds of our 50th State. Steel guitars slid all over the place, ukuleles plunked, and "Aloha" was said with love.
Beyond all this, the phones rang and happy folks donated to WRFG. The date was March 19, 2015.

On February 26, 2015, the Bunkhouse phone rang and it was Rory Hoffman calling. Rory is one of the most original musicians to ever call Nashville home, and his guitar stylings have to be seen to be believed - He's an unbelievable picker!
We talked about growing up musical, his guitar collection and about life in Music City, U.S.A. It was a good conversation, for sure!

January 8, 2015. The Cigar Store Indians quartet dropped by the Bunkhouse for a pow-wow and some exciting live music. The band: Ben Friedman, singer and rhythm guitarist; Todd Kerstetter, acoustic bass; Charlie Blevins, snare drum; and Micah Cadwell, lead Telecaster-ist, played rock and roll with the kind of swing that makes you pat your foot while you play air guitar. All in all, a wonderful way to inaugurate yet another season of live pickin' from the Bunkhouse of The Air.
