B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU-FM, 90.5/ SAT., 6 FEB. 10

Not sure whose dog singer/songwriter Freedy Johnston has in his arms, but one thing's for sure - Johnston's new release, Rain on the City, on Bar/None is something worth howling about. It's his first recording of original material since 2001. Recorded and produced in Nashville by Richard McLaurin, Rain on the City could be one of Freedy's finest and one of the best records released this year (so far!).
