    I'm giving this a bump...I'm really enjoying Outlaw Country as of late. It began as a really stupid station playing ridiculous songs, but today I heard Los Lobos, Dylan and John Hiatt back to back to back in the morning, and Levon Helm in the afternoon. Plus, you hear a lot of the alt country that used to be the Border way back in the day...stuff from the holy trinity of Wilco, Uncle Tupelo and Son Volt. I even heard a Jack White song.

    There's still the occasional wasted air time filled with Hank Williams Jr. or some crap but overall it's a much improved station.

    If and when I ever did come back to Sirius, it'd be for stuff like this. Although it'd have a lot to live up to from the days of X-Country which was my favorite station on XM, by a lot.

    And the Slacker Alt. Country station does a good job also. In the short time I listened to IT last night, I heard Ryan Adams, some old R.E.M., Chris Issak and Uncle Tupelo. Decided it was worthy of caching, and I'll give it a listen in the car on Monday.

    If they just kept the talentless hacks like Hank Jr. on Willie's Roadhouse and made Outlaw more of an alt-country station, they'd have accomplished a lot. I think the XM influence (deeper playlists) has probably improved Outlaw Country more than anything else.

    Yeah, drop the Hank Jr. types and kick Mojo off the air and you've got something.

    I have been digging Outlaw Country a bit too lately.

    Some John Hiatt, Joe Ely (The road goes on forever), and some classic John Prine....

    I'm not a country guy, but I like a few Hiatt songs. Perfectly Good Guitars kills.

    Anyone whose ever heard 'Thing called Love' by Bonnie Raitt probably knows John Hiatt performed the original. Both versions are very good.

    Reverend Billy F. Gibbons talks about the "regathering" of his late '60s garage band The Moving Sidewalks with Chris T. tonight 9 pm ET and tomorrow 11 pm ET

    [​IMG]

    The Moving Sidewalks was a 1960s American psychedelic blues-rock band, most notable for giving future ZZ Top guitarist, Billy Gibbons, his start in the music business. The band consisted of Gibbons on guitar, Don Summers on bass, Dan Mitchell on drums and Tom Moore on keyboards.

    Gibbons founded the Texas psychedelic group in the mid-1960s and quickly drew a large following, especially in the Houston "teen scene". They recorded several singles and one full-length album, Flash. Their single "99th Floor" was a hit and topped the charts at No. 1 in Houston for six weeks. The success of this record led the Sidewalks to sign with Wand Records which then released "Need Me" which also became a Top 10 Hit. The group was asked to open for many rock tours, including Jimi Hendrix and The Doors.

    After Tom Moore and Don Summers were drafted into the United States Army, Gibbons and Mitchell added Lanier Greig and formed the original ZZ Top. They recorded the first ZZ Top record, "Salt Lick", which was released on London Records.

    While attending Warner Brothers' art school in Hollywood, California, Gibbons engaged with his first bands including The Saints, Billy G & the Blueflames, and The Coachmen. By 1967, Gibbons returned to Houston and went forward forming an artfully designed band, conceptually inspired by friend and fellow musician, Roky Erickson and The 13th Floor Elevators, naming the group the "Moving Sidewalks", penning the hit single, "99th Floor" and engaging a friendship with Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix went on to say on The Tonight Show that Gibbons would be the next hottest guitarist.

    The Moving Sidewalks continued to appear along with the 13th Floor Elevators at the Houston, psychedelic venue, Love Street Light Circus, located on Commerce Street. The Elevators set was stopped after only a few songs by the Houston police department, who arrested the band's lead singer Roky Erickson.

    In January 2013 Gibbons announced the Moving Sidewalks would reunite with all original members for one shot on March 30, 2013 at B.B. King's Blues Club in New York City.
