Come Hungry . . . Leave Happy

The Friday Morning Breakfast Bar 7-9 am mixes it up a bit this time around by pushing beyond the limits of typical "Americana" Music.  This genre grows deeper and wider the more one tries try to define it.  The more somebody might try to pigeon hole what Americana means, the more it resists. Could this be the "melting pot" of today's music?  This Fridays playlist certainly colors "outside the lines" by providing a very large and widely varied buffet certain to satisfy even the hungriest of appetites. The Breakfast Bar, early Friday mornings on WSLR.
