As I said previously, the highlight of my 2010 SXSW (besides calling the SXSW Championship Softball game in Kevin Connor, won by the staff this year) was hanging at Casey's shed with Ray Wylie Hubbard, Danny Barnes, James McMurtry, Gurf Morlix, Roky Erickson and his son Jegar, Will Sheff and all the Okkervill River gang, along with Dallas Wayne and Jeremy Tepper from Outlaw Country on Sirius/XM satellite radio.
Ray conducted some great interviews over the course of the afternoon, but you don't have to take my word for it.
This Saturday, April 3, you can hear it for yourself with a free listen on Outlaw Country on Sirius/XM at 4 pm central, and again on Sunday, April 4 at 8 pm central, Tuesday, April 6 at 7 pm central, and Thursday April 8 at 11 pm.
