Lost Music Saloon presents:

Welcome to the 2018 Labor Day Special here in the Lost Music Saloon. To a lot of folks the Labor Day weekend is a good reason to squeeze out a few last days of summer at the beach, or at a BBQ, or shopping the sales. But Labor Day started out as a holiday to recognize both the laboring class in America, and the struggles of organized labor on behalf of working men and women. Today’s Saloon selects songs that lean heavily in that direction.

I’ll also be giving away tickets to see the SOLD OUT Trampled by Turtles concert in Charlottesville this coming weekend, as well as taking an advance peek at the Drive-By Truckers who’ll be performing right here in Richmond on Brown’s Island this coming Saturday.
