Mulligan Stew Feb 8th 2020-Mexico Themes!

For over 80 years CKUA has been donor supported.  The human engine that keeps us on-air and moving forward.

So when program donors plunk down the big dough to sponsor an hour of The Stew I pay attention to what they are saying.

I’ve become friends with many of them.

For example..the first hour Saturday is sponsored by Mary and Graeme.  They’ve been here many times..we ended up fishing together.

This shows they’re in Mexico and suggested tunes with Mexico themes or references.


James Taylor – Mexico

Jim Byrnes – Postcard from Mexico

Los Lobos – La Bamba

Carlos  Santana and Willie Nelson – They all went to Mexico

Taj Mahal – Senior Blues

Duke Robillard – Down in Mexico

Texas Tornados – Adios Mexico

Linda Ronstadt – Por un Amor

Our second donor Michael..suggested tracking some Barney Bentall music

Barney Bentall and the Legendary Hearts – Something to live for

Barney – Hey Mama from The Drifter and the Preacher

The Radio Grande – King of July

Then we go out in a blaze of glory

Paul Simon

Harry Manx

Steve Winwood

Sarah McLachlan

Steely Dan

Sheryl Crow and Joe Walsh
