The Steel Guitar in Western Swing & Country music

To steel or not to steel? That is the question I will try to answer this Saturday as we explore the pedal and non-pedal steel guitars and their roles in Western Swing and Country music and related genres over the decades. We'll hear examples from revered players such as Speedy West, Buddy Emmons, Ralph Mooney, Leon McAuliffe, Don Helms and many more. I'll talk a little about the history of the instrurment and how it has changed over the years too. Tune in to KBOO 90.7 from 6-9 am or listen via live-stream at KBOO.fm from anywhere in the world!
