And just like that, it is Thursday. Last night, an excellent early show at The 5 Spot. With local band, Harpooner. Why oh why am I just "discovering" this band now? They were awesome. Followed by the always amazing Allen Thompson Band with lots of special guests. A really fine early evening of music. Later, I was at WXNA for the Pledge Drive - hanging out with Kon for Freaking Out the Squares. Austin from Sound, Mind, and Proxy was hanging out, too. Remember, if you love what WXNA has done for Nashville over the past six months, now is a good time to show your appreciation by making a one-time or recurring donation to keep us going. 615-933-9962 or on-line at WXNAFM.ORG.
Tonight, E2TG Artist of the Year 2015, Jon Latham will be opening up for Bobby Bare Jr.. Harrison Whitford is also on the bill. This is at The Basement East. Get there!
Okay, it is Thursday when we normally throw it back. I still haven't gotten around to creating a throwback playlist, so today, I am shuffling songs from the built-in Recently Added playlist. Throwing back to the days before I had playlists at E2TG. I have to keep it short and to the point today.
"Like the Wind" by Jon Worthy
Nashville singer-songwriter Jon Worthy's latest album is May You Live Happily Ever After. I have really been digging this album.

"Whiskey Sings Like Angels" by Tom House
Nashville songwriting great Tom House with a track from Winding Down the Road which was produced by Brock Zeman.
"Halfway Home" by Well Worn Soles
Another great track from Country/folk.

Some surf/instrumental rock music for your Thursday.
