This week's show is chock full of great singing and inspiring instrumentals.  We hear from Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers, a truly classic bluegrass band from Ohio, just out with a new album of both old and new songs, all driven by Mullins' solid, tasteful banjo playing. Dale Ann Bradley, formerly of the New Coon Creek Girls, has a new album out too, and we hear a song from that ahead of her appearance next month at the National Folk Festival in Greensboro, NC. There's much more – including songs from country artists Wilma Lee Cooper and Karen Collins, plus some pre-blues banjo playing and singing from Dink Roberts.
