This week's High Country Music Radio will feature songs from "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," a 1972 album that introduced many of us to bluegrass and old-time country music. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band wanted to play alongside their bluegrass heroes and bring together two generations of musicians. The Nashville- and Appalachian-based artists include Roy Acuff, Mother Mabelle Carter, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Norman Blake, Vassar Clements, and others. The result is a critically acclaimed album recorded with minimal processing, retaining much of the musician's dialogue between songs.
Tune in KDRT 95.7 FM Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon, or from 7 to 8 p.m, or stream at @KDRT.org
