Playlist for 2/19/10: Put Your Paws Up

Inspired by an article in Sports Illustrated about the 1979 Daytona 500, I began the show with a “bear” theme. The story recounts the legendary race, which ended with a fight involving the Allison brothers, Bobby and Donnie, and Cale Yarborough, who tried a little hillbilly kung fu (unsuccessfully) in the altercation. The part that really stuck with me, however, was a quote from Yarborough, who owned a bear named Susie: “Anytime you raise a bear, you’re probably going to [do] some bear wrestling.” Words to live by.

New music this week from David Hidalgo & Louie Perez, Nick Curran, Joe Pug, Kasey Anderson and Will Kimbrough and an eight-song salute to Dale Hawkins. I’ll have the Twilight Hours from Minneapolis on the show next Friday.

Download or stream the show right here (says Buzz's Garage).
