man, I ran across a Curless LP once & didn't grab it. Got some singles though
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 7:26pm Lane Gray:

This should be followed by Dave Dudley and I Wish I Had a Nickel
(I'll mostly listen, I'm piloting 22 wheels)
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 7:27pm Julea:

Ahhh, didn't get any Dudley in this time! Next week!
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 7:28pm Julea:

Miles, my favorite Dick Curless album is "Hard, Hard Traveling Man." It. Is. So. Good.
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 7:30pm Lane Gray:

I'm Facebook friends with Bennies son Troy
  Thu. 4/13/17 7:31pm miles:

is your fave on tower? did he have stuff on capitol?
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 7:31pm Julea:

He's a sweetheart Lane, I was actually talking with him last week about calling into the show sometime!
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 7:32pm Julea:

That record is actually on Capitol, the one from 1970.
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 7:33pm Lane Gray:

Miles, he had a live thing on Capitol, with the second line of the A Team instead of his road band. So instead of Hal Higgins, he had Curly Chalker.
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 7:34pm Lane Gray:

Who was Bonnie's lap steel player?
Avatar Thu. 4/13/17 7:35pm Lane Gray:

Or Bennie's
