The upcoming ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 9/28, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will be comprised of songs by, about or otherwise concerning No Depression.

No Depression was a fine music magazine, now defunct, that focused on (per the magazine’s motto) “Alt-country, whatever that is.” No Depression is also a genre designation more or less consistent with the aforementioned motto. The term No Depression harkens back to an old Carter Family song.

Artists featured on Friday’s show have graced the cover of No Depression over time, primarily during the first half of the magazine’s run. (I plan to do a follow-up show some time in the future that will feature the artists who appeared on the cover later in the magazine’s run, so don’t fret [no pun] if your favorite band was omitted!)

Hope you can join us for the show, as well as in the Ustream chat room!
