Iowa Basement Tapes #21 11-22-2018 Happy Thanksgiving

Night Listeners –

Happy Thanksgiving! If you are one of our listeners from KCOE in Cedar Rapids, we have a ton of tunes from your neck of the woods. Digging through the crates we got an old demo from ol’ Will Whitmore of his tune “Gravel Road”. This was ripped directly from the cassette that was mailed to Brad Adita for the Another Day In The Air compilations. I also got new newer tunes from Peanut Ricky, Huxley Maxwell, and Waverly. This playlist was crafted for those who are chilling in their food coma and just want everyone to leave them alone. Jack Meggers will be joining me next week to discuss Mason City’s once-thriving alternative music scene.
