Radio show playlist through 7/31

As I've written about here before, I have a radio show on Marfa's 50,000 watt public radio station for Far West Texas. That would be on the web at www.marfapublicradio.org
Anyway, my format is as follows: 60% 70's to current R&B (southern style), 25% Texas music of all styles, and 15% of anything else I feel like playing. I write down most of what I plan to play before I do each show and play it in no particular pre-planned order, but instead by feel.
The show is every Tuesday night from 11PM to 1AM (with commentary) and until 2 AM (without comment but still spinning records and inside the studio). That's Central time and I take requests as well. I have been diligent about loading material from my personal collection into the station's master computer so the other DJ's can access it permanently.
Here is a list (in no particular order) of most of the songs and artists I have played since my show began May 20th. I missed one Tuesday and station manager Tom Michael was kind enough to stay up late and sub in for me using mostly tracks off my I.D. (ones I programmed in- about 580 so far).

Many of these artists are currently performing around the U.S.- especially the ones you may not have heard of. I recommend some further research for any artists that catch your attention.

I am certain that this list is incomplete and I am missing at least one or two weeks' worth of prep sheets, but you get the drift. I'll try to publish songlists from the radio show (called The Night Train Express) every few months as it builds up. Most of this stuff I load into the system is from CD's but probably about 40% is from my record collection- 45's and LP's. It takes substantially longer to transfer the vinyl, and I needed some content fast at first. I should be able to tip the balance over to the vinyl side fairly soon.
Thanks for listening if you are- Tuesday nights 11PM to 2 AM Central time. www.marfapublicradio.org
