Country Mike's Hauraki Hoedown Playlist

Here is the playlist for Country Mike’s Hauraki Hoedown on Beach Radio for Monday July 31st, 2006.

After chucking in my two "9" songs following Bob's weekly 'bobcast' I did an small run of war songs and got on just a little bit of a soapbox about what's happening in Lebanon. There's a lot that could go in here obviously, but I was afraid it might get a bit much so just did a handfull or so. War songs in the country vein seem to line up along a sort of trad / alt line with the traditional musicians often presenting a kind of pro-war / american nationalism / "support our boys over there" type of sentiment vs the alt-country conscious anti-war message, best reflected in this small set by Steve Earle and the one by Wilco. Might have another crack at this later in the month. Here's the playlist ...
