11th February – remembering Western Swing guitarist /bandleader Dude Martin (John McSwain, 11th March 1915 – 11 Feb 1991) who was king of the western music scener in the San Francisco Bay area for two decades from the mid 1930s. BACM’s CD194 features a selection of transcriptions cut by Dude and his Night Riders band in the 1935/36, a mix of western songs, country novelties and old fiddle tunes plus some originals. More of the band’s recordings are included on the BACM CD544 compilation of early California “Cowboys and Hillbillies” recordings. > > >
