There’s a certain bounce to this week’s Roadhouse Podcast. It finds a groove and stays there right on through to the end. With artists like Mike Dugan, The Siegel-Schwall Band, Danny Eyer, J. B. Hutto, and Johnny Hoy and The Bluefish, it’s impossible to refrain from chair-dancing, snapping your fingers, and generally annoying your co-workers. […]
