In the before times, Radio Free Athens’ volunteer DJs filled the WOUB AM airwaves most Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 8p.m. EDT. We’ll be back at it in time, but for now we are supplying weekly playlists and accompanying memes.


From R@T 

This week’s playlist came together rather easily. Unfortunately it has
been inspired by the passing of Justin Townes Earle at a way too young
of an age. Too many people leave us way too early. Somehow these
songs fit together nicely. See if you can make the connections…

Justin Townes Earle- My Starter Won’t Start (Bad Gasoline)
Steve Earle & Emmylou Harris- Goodbye
Townes Van Zandt- Pancho & Lefty
Steve & Justin Townes Earle- Hometown Blues
Doc & Merle Watson- Don’t Think Twice
Justin Townes Earle- Can’t Hardly Wait
Paul Westerberg- Love Untold
The Replacements- Alex Chilton
Alex Chilton- What’s Your Sign Girl?
Big Star- I’m In Love With a Girl

From Michael T. 

Isolation 22: Summer’s Almost Gone

Music for the seasonal change.  Thank you all for listening.

From DJ Grumpy Grandma 

School’s back in session, and this is good music for when your brain is feeling numb from all the early mornings and caffeine. The more I learn, the more aware I am of all the things I don’t know.
