This marks the first half dozen shows centered around paying tribute to the free form aesthetic of early FM programming. Hear snippets of pioneer Alison Steele and her Nightbird show surrounded by new and old selections that combine in ways that hopefully take you on a ride of emotion, using musicality as your transportive vehicle. Turn the lights down and the volume up and let yourself go with the flow.

There's no number on this episode, simply "Charlie's Good Tonight" a loving tribute to a gracious man of impeccable taste and prodigious talent, The "engine room" of The Rolling Stones and the heartbeat of many of our lives. Charlie Watts was in a league of his own and his never wavering time is now eternal.
Time for another drive around the record machine and FTB#139 is fully fueled with all kinds of sounds, new, old, known and seldom heard. We say farewell to the wonderful Nanci Griffith, plunder the new arrival pile for Nathaniel Rateliff, Joy Orbison, Mac Mccaughan, Aimee Mann, Willie Nile, the return of Backyard Tire Fire, Maserati, Sorrows, Dana Gillespie, Sufjan Stevens & Angelo DeAugustine, Amos Lee and Christone "Kingfish" Ingram. Make time for Bowie, The Devlins, Divine Horseman, Albert King, Lightnin' Slim, Nick Lowe, Todd Rundgren, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Dismemberment Plan, Don Covay, The Staple Singers, Little Richard, The Afghan Whigs and so much more.
