White Walls #44: The Super Instrumental Show, Part 1!

 Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to be back with a new show - it's been a while! In fact, I was so excited to be back, I did a special two-part show, full of great bluegrass and Americana instrumental music. This week, Part 1 airs on SpiritPlants Radio, and includes many favorite artists that I've played before, like Balmorhea, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Sarah Jarosz, and Crooked Still, plus some new (to me) artists like Hawktail and Bowregard. It's an hour of fiddle-y, moody, dance-y music - great to listen to on a nice summer evening!

I really enjoyed putting together this two-part show, and I hope it brings a smile to your face! Stay tuned to SpiritPlants Radio, because Part 2 will be airing soon! While you're there, check out all the other great shows airing this week!

Take care,
DJ Blue

White Walls #43: The Annual Winter Show!

 Hello everyone,

I hope you are having a safe and warm December. It is a gray day here in New England, lightly snowing, sometimes sleeting - a perfect day to listen to some seasonal music, which you can find this week on my annual winter show! As usual, I'm playing lots of my favorite seasonal songs, including Sarah McLachlan, Sufjan Stevens, Dolly Parton, John Denver, and Reba McEntire, plus a few new ones by Amanda Shires. These songs are many of my favorite of the season, and I hope you enjoy them.

There are lots of other shows over on SpiritPlants Radio this weekend, so be sure to check out the whole schedule! As always, it's a good one!

Here's to a happy and healthy 2022 for us all! 

Take care,

White Walls #42: Autumn

Hi everyone,

It is the middle of autumn here in New England, and it has been a beautiful one! The crisp air and beautiful leaves are a nice treat after a hot, wet, and humid summer. 

I'm excited about my new show this weekend! As usual, I included some songs by favorite artists, like Alanis Morissette, Jonatha Brooke, and River Whyless, and new-to-me artists like Rising Appalachia and Shook Twins. Lots of fiddly Americana, plus some more singer-songwriter tunes as well. I hope you enjoy it!

Don't forget to check out the whole weekend schedule on SpiritPlants Radio

I'll be back again soon with another show! 

Take care,

White Walls #41 - Summer Show!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying these early days of summer! It has been a warm June here in New England. Heat and I do not get along well, so I've been inside a lot and have enjoyed all the time to listen to some great new music! I'm really excited to tell you about this week's show, which features new music from artists I've featured before, like the Wild Rivers, Sarah Jarosz, and Mipso, and also some brand-new-to-me artists like South for Winter, the Fretless, and Bonny Light Horseman. 

It's a fun show, and I hope you enjoy it! But don't forget to tune in to the rest of the weekend here on SpiritPlants Radio - in addition to the great DJs featured this weekend, it's Comedy Hour weekend, and I am sure you'll find something you'll enjoy!

I'll be back again soon with more fiddly and folksy music to share! Have a great summer!

White Walls #40 - Spring!

 Hello everyone,

Spring has arrived here in New England, and the leaves on the trees are budding, birds are singing, and flowers are blooming. Even better, vaccines are going into arms and things are looking up.

I wanted to do something special for my 40th show, so this time, I'm featuring some of my favorite country songs from my youth. I chose classic favorites like Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, Alabama, and more. It was a fun show to make, and I hope you enjoy!

I hope you are all doing well, and here's to an even better summer!

Take care, 
DJ Blue

White Walls #38: Cozy Autumn Show

Hello everyone,

I'm really happy to bring you this week's White Walls show - creating it was a wonderful way to get away from the ongoing pandemic and the surging cases everywhere. Autumn is my favorite season and it's been an especially vibrant and beautiful one here in New England, so my goal with this week's show was to bring you some cozy music to curl up with, maybe under a blanket or by a fire. It features several songs by a new favorite of mine, the Way Down Wanderers, along with great music from The Chicks, Mipso, and Small Glories, and many more! 

This weekend is a special one on SpiritPlants Radio - it's the 17th Anniversary Weekend! There are a lot of great shows this celebratory weekend, so I hope you go check them out! And congratulations to everyone who has been involved in this great labor of love for so long - good job!!

As this pandemic rages on around us, I hope all of you and your loved ones are staying safe. Here's to a safe Thanksgiving this year, so that we're all around to enjoy it together next year. 

Take care,
DJ Blue
