On September 21, we celebrate the music of Hank Williams, with the release of a new 2CD set, The Songs of Hank Williams: a compilation of Northern California musicians. The CD is a fundraiser for KRCB-FM, Sonoma County’s NPR affiliate. Hank would have turned 96 on September 17, and plays a big role in the upcoming PBS series, Country Music by Ken Burns. Ken calls Hank the “Hillbilly Shakespeare”.
