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 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 22, 2014. Great things happen when Mr. Dante Harmon sits down behind his steel guitar: feet start to tap, heads start to bob, and a certain spirit fills the room.

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.

January 1, 2015. 2015 marks the beginning of 32 years at WRFG. 3 decades of Western Swing ain't a bad thing...
Probably the greatest joy I've found at WRFG is to find and invite musicians to the studio for live, spontaneous sessions and in-depth guitar geek conversation.

As a salute to our "30-Wonderful" (31) years of Sagebrush, we invited in some performers who always make the Ol' Bunkhouse feel a little bluesy and strange....
Delta Moon, led by Tom Gray and Mark Johnson came in with funky twin slide guitars and a heap of songs that made us sit up and pay attention.

November 20, 2014 will be remembered as the night the Theremin came to WRFG. Under the gently waving hands of Mr. Kris Dale, the electronic instrument buzzed, burped and wheezed its sci-fi tones all over the Bunkhouse Of The Air.

In addition, Mr. Dale also slyly slid around on his 8 string lap steel. The evening was a triumph of exotic proportions...

On October 9, 2014, the foursome invoked the exotic spirit of Django Reinhardt and made the world seem right with their breezy gypsy spirit. They were also kind to invite the young vocalist Jody James Chamberlain to sit in on a new tune called, oddly enough, "Sagebrush Boogie"!

Week Two of the RFG Summer Marathon saw the Sagebrush staff hatch a brazen plot to seize the public's ear and gnaw on it.
Here is how it went: the first hour of the show was crammed with the live sounds of the 5 member Junction Band, featuring the guitarist Billy Joe Bob Puckett. It swung nicely.
The second hour was a jaunt into the honky tonk world of The Texas Troubadour himself, Mr. Ernest Tubb.
It was a winning combination. The Western Swing of the Junction Band and the lugubrious voice of E.T. made the phone lines light up. The date was July 10, 2014.
