On the latest USofA I featured Merle Haggard. Yesterday was his 76th birthday! I featured a good dose of his music and some choice covers!

I also gave a spin to a couple of tunes from Phosphorescent, who are performing next Friday at the Turf Club. Also on the docket are a couple from the new Dawes album, which is set for release on Tuesday and will be The Currents CD of the week beginning tomorrow!
