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!

    As a longtime fan of the podcast, I can’t express how sad I am to hear this is the last show. Music podcasts are being targeted left and right these days, and it’s an absolute shame.

    Thank you for this labor of love throughout the years. I know I’ve found a lot of excellent underground talent from your shows, and that my library is richer because of you.

    Wow, thank you very much Zachary!/’I might be coming back, we’ll see but I really appreciate your kind words and support!
    Take care,
