The Road To Bakersfield

The road to Bakersfield goes through North Carolina.  It also happens to be the name of a song by The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash.  We want to thank Ed for sending us and e-mail saying he enjoys the program from his neck of the woods in North Carolina and thanks for requesting the track from BSOJC “The Road To Bakersfield.”  We have some of their music, but haven’t gotten to it in a while.  Thanks for reminding us and letting us play that track.

Other than that, we winged it for much of the show.  Occasionally one song leads into another and pretty soon we have a mini theme going.  As always, we have a great time spinning these tunes.  Thanks for listening where ever you are.
