Playlist for 2-4-11: The rabbit sat down and cried just like a little child

Blind Lemon Jefferson and others helped me salute the Year of the Rabbit to open the show. New music this week from the Godfathers, the Fleshtones, the Dirtbombs, Trent Fox & The Tenants, and Hans Rotenberry & Brad Jones. Tune into WMSE this Friday from noon to 3 p.m. when the legendary Godfathers stop by Zero Hour. And speaking of legends, Paul Collins, the king of power pop himself, will perform on Zero Hour on Feb. 18!

Update: Due to a visa mishap, the Godfathers show Friday in Milwaukee has been cancelled, so no Zero Hour visit. Dang it.

Download or stream the Feb. 11 show right here.
