Tonight’s show is  a selection of Southern rock songs curated by Richard Gordon, Ben Gordon, and yours truly,

Andrea Young.  From the Allman Brothers to the contemporary J. Roddy Watson & The Business, Aspenbeat’s Southern Rock homage focuses on ‘Southern Rock’ defined as developed in the Southern U.S. from rock and roll, country music & blues, and focused generally on guitar and vocals.*

The show features an interview with Jackson Emmer,

on the quirky acts he is booking for performances at Aspen’s Justice Snows Restaurant, along with a prediction from “Colleen The Reader” on the economy in 2014.  She thinks its going to get better.  So go out there and spend your money on music and show a little love to all the musicians out there who are hurting because streaming revenues aren’t helping them buy their loaf of bread quite yet!
