Happy Saturday to everybody! It's a beautiful spring afternoon here in southern Ohio and I've just settled in to watch the Cardinals-Cubs and opened my first Budweiser. Here's to spring days and drinking in the afternoon! Speaking of drinking, today begins a new feature on KGB. Circa every Saturday, or perhaps some early morning Sundays, I'll be posting my Saturday Six Pack of songs. These will be 6 songs that I'm jonesing on for the last few days. The more great music, the better!
Whiskeytown -- Angels Are Messengers From God from Rural Free Delivery
RA and CC singing blissfully as always.

Great Lake Swimmers -- Various Stages from Bodies and Minds
Indie band out of Canada. They just released a new album in 2007, but this is from their 2005 release.

Son Volt -- Highways and Cigarettes from The Search
My favorite song from my favorite album of the year thus far. Farrar, with Shannon McNally accompanying on harmonies, sounds as good as ever.

Mark Kozelek -- Cruiser from Little Drummer Boy
One of Kozelek's many fine originals. This is taken from his live acoustic album released this year.

Gillian Welch -- Black Star from Black Star EP
Gillian Welch covering a Radiohead song? Yes, and very well at that.

Bloodkin -- End of the Show from Good Luck Charm
Loved this song for years thanks to WIdespread Panic and JB's heart felt delivery. The Hutchens have written great songs for years, this included.
