Merle Haggard is fondly remembered in this part of the country.

Thanks, all.

Cowboy Jack - worst producer ever. Ruined those Townes records.

This is a great tribute. I hate to sound like a weenie, though. Is there something amiss in the HTML on the playlist grid? The whole grid is a link to the Paris Review article.
Avatar Wed. 4/13/16 8:23pm Becky:

Oh, weird! I'll try and fix it later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/13/16 8:23pm Jeezy:

Oh-em-gee... THAT KRIS KRISTOFFERSON song!
There's something in my eye... :-/
Those two old fashioneds did NOT help...

Fixed!

@BKoM To be honest, I don't mind it. And it's better than the '80s production crimes on some of the other versions...
  Wed. 4/13/16 8:29pm Both Kinds of Music:

No such thing as good 80s production anyway you cut it.
  Wed. 4/13/16 8:45pm brycepunk:

I've never heard a Merle Haggard song before your show. Wow! I get it. Gonna have to pick up some of his records.
Avatar Wed. 4/13/16 8:46pm Becky:

Yeah @brycepunk there's about 100 of 'em, and they're all pretty great!!

I often say my 1st Live concert was The Ramones. In another way - it was really a Country band @ the county fair - playing 'Silver Wings' - & haunting me forever...

Late to the 2nd half of the wake, but appreciate what I’m hearing right now. Also, read the Lorin Stein piece in the Paris Review… Timing is everything in life and it’s never too soon to be too late!
  Wed. 4/13/16 8:49pm Both Kinds of Music:

Ooh, I'm stealing Mixed Up for my show tomorrow!
Avatar Wed. 4/13/16 8:50pm Becky:

@BKoM It's great, right? Practically a Buck impression, but great!

Sad/funny/infuriating that a working man in 2016 can relate to a song about the working man sung in 1977 and realize not much has changed.

@JakeG: Two things about that: 1.) LBJ knew signing the civil rights act in 1964 would cost Liberals the South for who knows how long. Before hat Country was closer to Folk & the Left... 2.) Reagan began 'trickle down' economics - before that the working class's wages went up profits - but not since.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/13/16 9:02pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

before *that...*with profits
- Thx HonkyTonkRadioGirl!
