Rural Ledge-ucation #40: Johnny & Etta

A note to all listeners - this show almost didn't happen. The morning started like every Sunday - I woke up and headed to the coffee shop for my usual two mugs of caffeine. I headed home and set up everything for the show, and when Drazzle handed the reins over to me - NOTHING! I couldn't connect.
For once in my life, I stayed calm. I reset my modem. I restarted my laptop. Still nothing. Finally, I pulled out a few cables and rejiggered everything to load onto my other laptop, which I then was able to connect. It's rough, but the show is here!
Why go through all this trouble? Good question. I guess it's mainly because I had put together a pretty varied set for the day. Besides lengthy tributes to Johnny Otis and Etta James, including a rare bootleg duet between Etta and Bob Dylan, I also had lined up a rare cover of Ratt by Ryan Adams, and new music by Joseph Arthur, Craig Finn, and others. Plus, a great Jimmy Cliff EP where he covers Rancid and The Clash!
