North Country Boy! Show tracks for Sat. Aug. 17/13

After hearing the tragic news of Jon Brookes death this past week I decided to feature the music of The Charlatans tonight. The Charlatans may be the only band that is almost the exact age of this show and still recording. We both got our start in 1989/90 and have lasted 20+ years. We played there debut Indian Rope and featured their last lp as well as everything in between. They would definitely be part of the Cowboys & Indies life soundtrack.
RIP Jon.
