No. 38 (Spring 2009)

The Ambassador: Asleep at the Wheel leader Ray Benson has spent four decades carrying the torch of western swing. He's towered over the Live Music Capital of the World as one of its most visble and respected artists for nearly as long, and even held office as the official State Musician of Texas. Not bad for a Philly boy.

Country roads, take me home: The Texas return of prodigal son Ben Kweller.

Jimmie Dale Gilmore Q&A: The Flatlanders' resident cosmic hippie songbird reflects on the legendary Lubbock trio's epic run, their new album and the bonding power of laughter.

Bugs Henderson: From '60s garage rock to Blue Music, the vesatile guitarist looks back in wonder at his long road to cult stardom.

Phil Ochs: Born in the West Texas town of El Paso, this topical folksinger dreamed of being Elvis Presley crossed with Che Guevara. And for a brief period in the '60s, he inspired a generation of activists, one unflinching protest song at a time.
