When I heard that Dwight Yoakam's latest album, 3 Pears, was co-produced by longtime KCRW favorite Beck, I was both delighted and intrigued. What we didn't expect was for his tried-and-true Bakersfield sound and honky-tonk style to put us under his spell long after his live performance, with his songs becoming a mainstay on our broadcast playlists for weeks to come.
