We have, admittedly, visited the money theme in the past. But this week Deeper Roots emphasizes the impact of the filthy lucre on our day-to-day existence. We worship at it’s altar, politicians are possessed by it’s self-serving allure, and we welcome its arrival often without considering the source. We’ll call this a followup to our theme show of some time back, incorporating country, gospel, soul, R&B, rock, rockabilly, and pop including performances from Chuck Berry, Fred Astaire, Big Sandy, Randy Newman, and Bill Branch. It doesn’t end there. Early American humorist Artemus Ward once observed that “When a fellow says it ain’t the money but the principle of the thing, it’s the money.” A freshly-mown observation if there ever was one. We’ll be exploring music about money in this week’s edition of Deeper Roots on KOWS and KRJF Community Radio for Sonoma County. Tune in on Friday mornings at 9 on KOWS or Friday evenings at 9 on KRJF.
