This week Shannon Vetter, do-everything man for Louisville jam/funk/jazz group Big Atomic, and special co-host Joe Schlaak of Restless LEg String Band joined me for Wick’s Picks on Lexington Community Radio.
Powerful female voices highlight this week’s live menu, led by Joslyn & The Sweet Compression and others at an Aretha Franklin tribute; Lake Street Dive, Magnolia Boulevard and a double dose of The Local Honeys.
#WicksPicks includes songs from Magnolia Boulevard, C2 & The Brothers Reed, J Roddy Walston and The Business and more, along with the upcoming Kickin it on the Creek and live performances from Tee Dee Young, The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Band of Heathens and many more!
