We were one of the first 3 radio stations in the world to play Steve Earle in 1986.
In honor of the 30th Anniversary of the release of his debut album Guitar Town, there will be an album re-issue tomorrow. Bonus tracks will include Steve’s legendary performance at XRT’s 1986 Holiday Concert for the Kids.
Any conversation with the hard core troubadour is going to conjure up some ghosts. Steve is in town to play The Vic Theatre Lampedusa Concert for Refugees so we had some time to catch up.
After the Steve Earle interview ended, Steve and I started talking about our baseball roots. Consider this the Steve Earle interview “bonus tracks.”
