38: Lost Highway

I had a hankerin’ to listen to some roots rock and Americana, and this episode scratches that itch with cuts from underground rock bands who were influenced by country music. We’ll hear from Uncle Tupelo (pictured), American Music Club, Green on Red, The Pogues, Giant Sand, Zeitgeist (aka The Reivers), Peter Case, Mekons, Guana Batz, Railroad Jerk, Scruffy the Cat, the BoDeans, Bedhead, and several others.
