I'm always showin' my love for DaveFM here in Atlanta. They play THE best music (although sometimes a little heavy on the Petty & Talking Heads side) and have the coolest personalities. They'd already won me over with Paste Picks, but now they've gone and done it again with last night's "Dave After Tomorrow" show with Margot and Mara as the special guest.
Last night's theme was country influence in rock. Knowing Mara is a Dixie Chick fan made this especially exciting. Could it be?? That DaveFM was gonna queue up some Chicks for the first time?! And not only did they give the girls a huge shout-out for their grammy wins, courage, and musical influence, they included them among such greats as Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Johnny Cash, Elvis, Dwight, Emmylou & Gram Parsons. The entire two hour segment was incredible - but especially getting to hear "The Long Way Around" on radio - period. Mara said it best, "good music is good music".
Man, I love that chick!
