Hey there , this is Jeri James with Red Dirt Roots Radio, and I have for you the Morning Cup Re-Cap. Here on this station, we play the best of Texas Country, folk rock, Americana, and roots music also known as Red Dirt.
It’s no ordinary day in the studio. In fact Friday Feeling always deserves a hashtag parked in front of it. So How about a run down of topics we’ve been discussing here on the show throughout the week.
Back to Monday , we beat the Meloncholy Long face with a Texas sized Charlie Horse and let me tell ya, that’ll wake you up in the Morning ; Faces splashed, and revived in no time by a band called Comanche Moon. This group is from Amarillo Texas and let me tell you they took us Back to the Country picking wild onions and chomping on rabbit Stew with all senses ignited while listening to their latest music from their 2018 album release which you can find on comanchemoonband.com if you like tunes that tell a story alongside a catchy melody, you can find more great music at Comanchemoonband.com.
On Tuesday we kicked back on a therapeutic Red Couch and bled the wound with sad , sad tunes , a little melodic therapy ; including a song by one of our very own , veteran here in the Grove by the Name of Shawn David. Shawn Ooh rah and Semper Fi to you, thank you for serving our country ! Our hometown Cottage Grove is blessed to have you as a member of our community Shawn’s new and latest tune mourns the blues and the bittersweet of loved and lost and he’s one to follow as he develops and progresses musically. You can hear him perform on November 30th and The 1st at Bugsy’s with the Band Most Wanted. Stay in the loop and here at the station , we’ll do our best to keep you posted on this Country , Red Dirt Artist indeed.
Not only is it my honor and privilege to report to to you a local musical hero but I want to also shout out another local gentleman here in Cottage Grove by the name of Paul Tocco who honors active duty and Veterens in his great restaurant. Many of you may be familiar and even regular customers on Main Street Buster’s cafe. Paul asked me recently to bring in a picture of my daughter who is serving in the United States Marine Corp. when I went down to drop off the 8×10 I took a moment to peek at his collection of photos; all men and women who have served and are serving currently. Not only is the food at this place fantastic but I also was impressed to find out that Veterans and Active Duty Service-members get 20% off their meals on Tuesday, Wed and Thursday and the 11 The of the month , their meals are absolutely free. That’s right on the 11th of any given month active duty as well as any Veterans eat at Buster’s cafe free , compliments of Paul Tocco, Buster’s Cafe right here in Cottage Grove Oregon . Thank you Paul for honoring our heroes.
