Freight Train Boogie Podcasts
A bi-weekly Americana music show featuring mostly new releases from the best indie roots artists. Permission has been granted for all of the tracks played on the Freight Train Boogie podcasts.
FTB Show #144 (One Shots)

FTB #144 is a "one shot" show where we catch up on some of the Americana and Roots music releases from 2011 that never made it on previous shows for some reason.  Heading into the new year with lots of new stuff lined up already means I'm not likely to get back to any of these artists soon.  Thus, the "one shot" designation.  Please click the artist's name to find out more about them and the song title for online CD or download ordering.
