Freight Train Boogie Show #479


FTB Show #479 is a “one-shot” show and the last FTB podcast. My goal has always been to feature great new indie Americana music releases to benefit the artists. Unfortunately, the licensing powers make it very difficult and expensive to continue the podcasts. I greatly appreciate the support of the artists and my listeners these 10 plus years. Here’s the iTunes link to subscribe to the FTB podcasts.  This is the direct link to listen now!
