One Year of Musical Fun!

Nathan Bell

It's the first anniversary of The Big Fat Wide Americana Hour

And we have a special treat -- an interview with the superb guitarist and songwriter Nathan Bell, along with some of his music.

Not to mention songs from artists as diverse as O.V. Wright and Steve Forbert. And so many more. Hear some classic old soul and some brand new blues. 

We think this one is a great, great show!

Celebrate with us! It's nothin' but fun!
