DJ Brother Cleve’s Country Jamboree mix

Br. Cleve

We’re tickled pink to introduce you all to DJ Brother Cleve. He has prepared an ode to the characters of old-time country music: The rabble-rousers, the heartbroken and the downright drunk. We’ll be playing Brother Cleve’s mix CD between live sets at the HOMEGROWN Urban Country Fair in St. Louis – a little bit country between a little bit rock and roll. He’s given us gems from George Jones and Loretta Lynn, as well as more obscure country nuggets from Hawkshaw Hawkins and Bobby Sykes. Thanks Brother!!

    I’m from Boston where Cleve operates outta. His country band was called The Wheelers and Dealers. Their record “My Mother, My Sister, My Wife” remains a cherished member of my collection of 45’s.

    Is anyone familiar with the country singer Paula Motes? I’m looking for someone who can tell me a little bit about her.
